Alex Asks Gina | NYC Proposal Photographer

Update: Check out our feature on The Knot! –

I was camouflaging as a tourist, just enjoying the view of the city and snapping photos with my fancy camera.  I was worried Gina would spot me and suspect something…but she didn’t even know I was there until Alex pointed me out after the proposal had been done for quite some time!  Proposals are so surreal, a magic mist of surprise/excitement/confusion surrounds the couple.  I probably could have been inches away and not been noticed.   On the other hand, their dog knew I was there the whole time.  Enjoy this surprise proposal and family gathering!

I did not even realize I caught the champagne flying in the air, so happy I did.
