Anthony's Surprise Proposal to Raechel in Sinatra Park Hoboken, NJ

I was contacted by Anthony's sister about his plan to propose to Raechel. She asked me if I thought it was a good idea to photograph it...my answer was of course; "Heck freakin' yeah it is!" I spoke with Anthony and he was game and impressively prepared. He had made a photo book of their time together complete with an image of the ring on the back cover to initiate the proposal. We devised a plan to put me close to the action. Here it goes...

I asked Anthony to meet me at Sinatra Park where the first met and walk near me while I was pretending to talk to a client. When they got close I hung up and asked them if I could take a quick picture of them to test my exposure while my couple arrived. He agreed and Raechel thought I was a freak. jaja

Anthony then proceeded to take a book out of my bag and hand it to her to look through. It contained images from their time together. Cool stuff! Since Raechel knew I was there waiting for a "client" I was now able to float around and grab the moments. Still a weirdo though I was later told.
