dave + lindsay – surprise proposal in Central Park, NYC

When Dave contacted me and told me he wanted to propose to his girlfriend Lindsay while on a row boat in Central Park, I was hesitant at first.  At the time, I had never done a boat proposal before, but had just had another inquiry from a different man asking for the same thing!  Seemed like this was my chance to get my fear of boat proposals behind me and just do it.   I just made sure he understood where to “park” the boat when he was going to propose and it ended up being more perfect than I could have imagined!!

As was the case this entire summer, the rain threatened all day, but we got away with just a few sprinkles.  Yay!

Dave and Lindsay, I hope you are enjoying your life as fiance’s in Ottawa, Canada.   Thank you for trusting me to be a part of this important moment!  I had a great time!

Here are some of my favorites from the day.  If you CLICK HERE you will see their awesome slideshow!

I was afraid she spotted me at that point…she didn’t.  He did though!

I LOVE her reaction.  I also love that the boat floated right towards me so that I could get such great close-up shots!

Great work!

I would have never guessed you had any doubts about a “boat proposal”. Lovely pics!!

Martrese - LOVE the rowboat idea – these came out beautifully! Of course, getting the iconic yellow NYC taxis in a few shots is always good. ;)
