Metropolitan Museum of Art Proposal
James and his girlfriend Kathryn live in Connecticut. Kathryn is currently getting her PHD in archeology, so James planned the perfect proposal in front of the Temple of Dendur inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Egyptian wing and of course I was there to secretly photograph it! This open space is gorgeous and full of light. This room perfectly marries ancient and modern with the Temple of Dendur set inside the large contemporary space with it’s rectangular pool and large slanted windows. My eyes always fall right into the reflection of the shadowy figures in the pool. I’m a sucker for reflected images of couples. The Metropilotian Museum of Art was a perfect location choice for James, because it put Kathryn right in her element. James and Kathryn made an elegant couple strolling around the museum. I watched as Kathryn showed James around the gallery pointing and explaining different pieces. She reminded me of myself wandering around the MOMA, challenging myself to guess the names of the artists without looking at the wall plaques. I would most definitely fail at this little game here inside the Met. Before entering the Temple of Dendur, James dropped to his knee. Kathryn’s reaction was awesome. How lovely is it to propose in a museum! I generally like to use museum’s as backups plans in case of rain, but if the girl you’re proposing to has an affinity for history and/or art it makes for the perfect spot. – Ash Fox
