So I get this email from Hattie saying that she has just gotten engaged, they want to do their engagement shoot in NYC where they live… and there are only two days it can happen, one of which is next week. OMG! Thank goodness I could get myself up there to do this shoot! Hattie and Andrew are such amazing people. These two have lived all over the world… and they are not even 30 years old. They currently live in NYC, but Andrew gets to travel all over for his job, and Hattie has plans to be abroad soon as well. They have such a passion for exploring, learning, and being spontaneous. It is SO fun to be around them!
Andrew proposed to Hattie in Central Park… after several romantic excursions that weekend, Andrew was waiting for the right moment, that spontaneous nudging saying “this is it!”. Hattie was suspicious that the question was about to be popped, and kept getting faked out every where they went. By the time Andrew proposed, Hattie had already decided it wasn’t going to happen that day. Perfect timing.
One of the places Andrew really faked Hattie out was on the canoes at Central Park. Hattie said she kept looking away to give Andrew a chance to pull the ring out of his pocket, but he never did… at least, not yet.
You know when I saw a guy blowing 7-8 foot long bubbles I HAD to get in on that action!
Then Hattie and Andrew took me to The High Line. David and I had read about this park and I was SO excited to get to experience it. Basically the city has taken an old railway that was no longer in use and turned it into a long park filled with tons of plants, sitting areas, and amazing views. An awesome example of repurposing in the city!
Andrew and Hattie, thank you so much for choosing to fly me up to do your engagement session, out of all the people you could have flown in the world 🙂 I hope your world travels this year are amazing and that wedding planning in the midst of that goes well!
