Troy and Lissette : Proposal in Central Park – nyc

Troy proposed to Lissette on a beautiful evening in Central Park.  He had written to me asking if I would photograph the moment and said he’d like to propose on a gondola!   This sounds super romantic and wonderful, however, I had my reservations about it.  Mainly from a photography stand point as it leaves me with less control of the situation.  If the gondolier doesn’t put the boat in the right position, I could miss her reaction completely.   In the end, I decided to go with it and I am so glad I did.  It WAS super romantic and wonderful and the gondolier did great job!  Troy and Lissette are such a great couple.  It really was such a pleasure spending the evening with them.

Troy and Lissette, thank you for trusting me with such an important task!  I had a blast!  I’ll never forget the Ram and the runners in their underwear!

Here are some of my favorites and, as always, CLICK HERE FOR THEIR SLIDESHOW!!   The slideshow is the best way to see the story unfold!

I love this shot.  He’s smiling right at me and she’s none the wiser!

Her reaction is priceless!

This is why I like to shoot before sunset….Look at that gorgeous light!
