Chris Proposes to Julia
This was the plan: Julia and a friend will be hanging out in Battery Park on a bench and as they are talking someone comes up to her and gives her a notebook for her to read. Her friend would have to take an important phone call and walks away. As she's reading the book, Chris will come up behind her, get on his knees, and proposes to her as she flips over the last page.
The only problem was that last night was too cold to do anything outside, let alone sit on a bench by the water where it's the coldest and windiest. Julia, wearing sandals and a skirt really didn't want to go, but had to give into her friend's insistent request. The cold may have dulled her senses to what was actually going on, because she was completely surprised and of course said, "yes." After the proposal, friends were waiting for us at a restaurant where they got to celebrate, hear the story and show the beautiful book Chris made for her.
Congratulations to you both!
For the photographers: these photos were taken with the 5D Mark III and edited in LR4. I was shooting as high as 10,000 ISO at one point and the images still came out amazing. With this camera and a good prime lens, it's unstoppable.
