This is not the first time Svenja + Heiko have graced my blog.
Over the past 4 years we have had quite a few shoots, celebrated birthdays, and formed a great friendship. As we prepared for our annual holiday shoot I got a special email from Heiko letting me know he was going to propose to Svenja on that day. I couldn’t help squealing with excitement and once I regained my composure I gave Heiko my thoughts on how we should capture it. I later suggested to Svenja that ice skating would be a fun background for the holiday photos and she agreed, little did she know of the master plan! 🙂
We started on the grounds of the Mid Manhattan Library. I am absolutely smitten by this building everything about it makes my heart melt. We chatted about the weather, upcoming holiday plans, and our love for Starbucks. We then walked around to the back where the Bryant Park Pond is located. I secretly was so nervous and anxious that “the moment” was so close. Once in the perfect position I gave Heiko the thumbs up and it HAPPENED! 😉
Congrats to the both of you!! I can’t wait till the wedding!!
Ohh and Svenja’s birthday was this week!!! Happy Birthday my darling!
Thank you so much Amy!! I didn’t know anything at all about his plans, as we never talked about this. So, it was such a big surprise and I’m so happy that you captured this special moment, as I honestly didn’t realize anything around me. You’re the best and I love love love your photos. So excited that you will also shoot our wedding!!! Thanks Amy
