From the Photographer

Tahir proposed to Amara under the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. This spot in Dumbo is one of the most popular places for couples to get engaged. You get to see a gorgeous view of the Manhattan skyline, plus the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. Tahir’s whole family came out to support the proposal. They held up individual signs that Amara got to read leading up to the proposal. At the end of the line, he sweetly got on one knee and asked her to marry him.


He gave a beautiful speech about their future together and how New York City was in the cards for them. Having been physically distant from each other throughout their relationship, they are planning their life together in the big apple. After they got engaged, there were so many hugs exchanged between family. It was such a wonderful moment to capture! We then took the couple for some fun, candid engagement photos around Brooklyn Bridge Park. There had been a blizzard just a few days ago, leaving tons of snow on the ground for photos. This made for a fun, unique, wintery post-proposal engagement session for Tahir and Amara, who were a total joy to photograph.
