A special congratulations to Dave and Katelyn! The couple was visiting from Michigan for a nice weekend and through a mutual friend, Dave contacted me to plan out a surprise proposal at Central Park. Following his lead, we were able to put together a great plan to surprise Katelyn. We lucked out too! It was rainy all week with rain in the forecast the day of, but God was on our side. In addition to the actual proposal, I'd have to say my favorite moment of this shoot was Dave's assurance that she'd be unsuspecting of what's going on, since he'll distract her with a little Pokemon Go adventure. Amazing!
I got to shoot my first maternity shoot on this brisk Sunday in April with the Mahers. This was honestly one of the most enjoyable shoots I did. The parents-to-be were full of love and I was merely there capturing their special moments. We started out at Jones Beach but we weren't so lucky with weather and quickly made an audible, re-locating over to a preservation by their home. That turned out to be a great idea as spent the rest of the afternoon in between the trees and most importantly, away from the strong winds.
