Greg and Preston | New York Proposal Photographer

Okay, so I know I’ve been a bad blogger the last three weeks, and it’s not because I don’t have anything to share…I have 5 gorgeous weddings/shoots I’m dying to show, but some are off limits (a gorgeous boudoir shoot I just did in my new apartment) and some gorgeous weddings are just in the wings, waiting for the clients to have their preview party and see them first! So I will hopefully have some gorgeousness to share with you very soon.

In the meantime, this is a fun one I’ve been waiting to share with you until the couple had shared the news with all their friends and family.  Greg and Preston’s touching proposal.

Greg and I were in touch all day via text as to which place on the High Line would work best.  The original spot he had chosen was super windy and barren and I didn’t think it would be easy for me to blend in and not ruin the moment.  I was there early and able to move to our plan b spot after conveying the message to Greg.  It was a cold spring day so contrary to normal, there were very few people on the High Line.   Preston told me later she didn’t notice me at all though, despite my bright yellow top.   Not the best camo, I’ll admit, but as Greg has never met me I wanted it to be easy for him to spot me and I know I was there before he proposed.  I pretended to be shooting the flowers and the scenery as they walked by…

He sat them on this lovely bench, I kept my distance, but I can only imagine from their posture the sweet words he was telling her here…LOVED the look of black and whites for this session – I think it adds to the photojournalist vibe of my super sneaky sniper secret proposal photography.  Also black and white has the effect of making the eye focus on the emotion rather than the outfits.
As the big moment drew near, I knew I had to get closer, so I got behind some bushes and pretended to be photographing flowers while adding some soft foreground dynamic .  Love the raw emotion on each of their faces:

We snapped a few quick portraits after the big moment and then I let them be to enjoy their moment and to call their Moms! :) One of which contacted me shortly after the session to buy a gift print for them of the big moment!

Preston you are toooooo gorgeous.
