Joseph and Daina are from Maryland and come to NYC for one full day each winter. It’s a tradition they’ve had for years, so Joseph thought it would be the perfect time to surprise Daina with a marriage proposal! They are young, but they been together for 11 years since middle school longer than many couples at their time of engagement. I was so moved listening to their story. They work together and are so supportive of each other’s dreams. Although Joseph and I had planned on an outdoor location, the weather was not our friend that day so we decided on Grand Central Station as a backup spot. Grand Central can be the definition of “hectic” but I loved watching time stand still while Joseph proposed in front of the famous clock in Grand Central Station. A stunning pause of romance in the middle of all the hustle bustle. I was so honored to photograph their proposal. Congrats to Daina & Joe!
