Maggy and Marcus
We love finding out as much as possible about our couple’s love story before the big day. Not only does it help to break the ice during that potentially awkward first moment in front of the camera, but our photographers feel better equipped to capture each couple’s unique chemistry after finding out a little more about how they met and fell in love.
Maggy and Marcus’ journey toward the altar started with a random act of chivalry (on marcus’s part) when he offered Maggy his seat the first day of Architecture class six years ago! Little did they know they’d be creating a blue print for love (pun intended). The two started hanging out and spent Christmas day together to see the tree lit at Rockefeller Center. Marcus (being the romantic guy he is) handed Maggy a book of post its that he turned into a flip book cartoon with a stick figure that told her “ I love you” and then asked her to be his girlfriend, which she happily accepted.
Their love continued to blossom over the years and last summer the two had a picnic at Flushing Meadow Park. The park is also home to the beautiful wedding venue Terrace on the park but is best known for the famous unisphere globe.
The two had hung out there before (they had their first kiss under the globe) so Maggy didn’t think it was odd when her friends encouraged her to climb to the middle of the platform for a photo. Marcus joined her and got down on one knee (as their friends played Ella Fitzgerald’s “our love is here to stay” in the background) and asked Maggy to be his wife.
Sticking with the park theme our photographer joined the two in Central Park for engagement photos to celebrate their upcoming marriage. We love the natural chemistry between these two and the romantic images captured. They stopped by several popular locations throughout the park including the Reservoir (the largest lake in Central Park).
We can’t wait to join the happy couple at Snug Harbor in Staten Island for their big day!
