St. Patrick’s Cathedral has always held a special meaning in Derrick and Stephanie’s lives, and Derrick knew this was exactly where he wanted to propose to his soon-to-be fiance. During an anniversary weekend getaway in NYC, Stephanie was completely stunned and speechless when Derrick dropped down on one knee. Derrick put together a complete weekend itinerary in celebration of their anniversary, and topped it off with a beyond amazing cherry on top. When the magic hour came around, I saw a perfectly executed and beautiful story unfold behind my lens.

If anyone ever said chivalry in today’s modern world has disappeared, I’d beg to differ – just look at Derrick! Every bit of planning and effort these men go through is a constant reminder to myself that love and romance still exist. Congratulations to Derrick and Stephanie and here’s to the amazing next chapter of their lives!
