A couple weeks ago, I was on my way to New York to shoot an amazing wedding along side Casey + Danielle from MindCastle Studios. A day before my flight from Toronto, I received a call from Gurj, Sukh’s boyfriend. Although they have been planning their wedding next year, he had not yet officially proposed to her. By sheer coincidence, Sukh and Gurj were on route to New York for a weekend getaway the same weekend as me. Except that it was more than just a weekend getaway; Gurj was secretly planning a surprise proposal in New York City. Sukh and Gurj really wanted to do a portrait session in NYC (because how can you NOT have photos in NYC?!), so Gurj and I conspired together so that he could propose to her during their photo session.
While we visited some recognizable landmarks in New York during their portrait session, what may be less obvious in the photographs is the weather that Sukh and Gurj literally battled. Despite a blanket of dark DARK clouds, torrential rains, and tornados in nearby Brooklyn (not kidding!), Sukh and Gurj were determined to enjoy their time in the city and with one another.
Congratulations Sukh + Gurj!
