Minnesota friends, Brooklyn and Manhattan backdrop... really couldn't get any better for this proposal shoot I did with Christine and Derek. I knew these two way back in high school and even played soccer with Christine back in elementary school. Derek and I had been chatting for months about how he wanted to propose on their trip to NY and have me photograph it for them. I was beyond ecstatic. I have never shot a proposal before and I honestly got tears when Derek bent the knee. The love between these two was so sweet and genuine, a love that was built in high school and continues to grow during their now long distance engagement. That's some strong love ladies and gents. In case it's not obvious, she said YES.
