This was such a special proposal to capture. Carolyn is my best friend’s sister, and someone I’ve become close with over the years. When Josh called to ask if I was available to capture the moment he proposes to Carolyn, I could not have been more excited.
Josh proposed to Carolyn on the roof of the New York City building where they share their first home together. Aside from this being a special location for them, it certainly didn’t hurt that the rooftop provided a fabulous view of the NYC skyline as a backdrop for the marriage proposal!
All afternoon the rain threatened, and while Josh worried it might ruin the proposal moment, I was ready with umbrellas and already envisioning the romance rain might add! The rain held off however, and as Carolyn realized what was happening, there were happy tears and screams of glee!! One of the things I love about Carolyn and her sister is the emotion they wear on the surface at all times, so I knew her reaction would be priceless. I also knew I had to capture the moment they called Carolyn’s sister to share the happy news!
I couldn’t tell you what my favorite part of this day was. The anticipation & nervous excitement I shared with Josh as we prepped the roof & practiced, the moment that Carolyn arrived and realized that she was being proposed to, the excited reaction she gave when she realized the moment was being captured by me, or the moments after as the two of them hugged in joy and called their family and friends to share the happy news!
