I can still remember when Chris was excitedly telling me and another coworker about how he got the engagement ring for Kate, and was planning to propose to her during their vacation in Jamaica. We were brain storming ways for him to propose, and I suggested that he pretends to go snorkel, hides the ring in a shell, then bring the shell to Kate and ask her to see what’s inside (I’m not ashamed to admit that I got this idea from an episode of Real Housewives of Orange County :p). In the end, Chris proposed during a romantic beach side dinner. Afterwards, they spent the entire dinner basking in the joy of their future together, and Chris was finally able to tell Kate the difficulties of hiding the ring from her =].
We took their engagement photos at Liberty State Park since they spent years living in Jersey City, and would often ride their bikes together at this beautiful location. Thank you Kate and Chris for braving the cold with me, and being up for anything =]. Thank you to my amazing boyfriend George for always waking up early to assist me on shoots.
