As a busy New York City proposal photographer, I’ve been a part of about a million engagements. But Sam and Julia’s early afternoon proposal in Central Park was absolutely one for the books. Despite the light rain that day, the weather only enhanced the beauty of the colorful fall leaves. It was giving Hallmark movie, but not in a cliche way haha.
The Central Park Mall, located right by Bethesda Terrace, was the location for this romantic event. The rain seemed to understand the assignment, keeping the usual crowds down to a minimum, which allowed the couple to have an intimate moment without all the usual hustle and bustle!
The surprise on Julia’s face was the highlight of my day—pure, genuine, and absolute delight. Every image I took captured their obvious joy and the sheer excitement of the moment.
