Ben teamed up with The Heart Bandits to orchestrate a sweet proposal for his girlfriend Tarah, and they called me to come photograph the whole thing. We met at The Art Studio in the Upper West Side, where there was live music playing and her favorite wine being served. I donned an apron and made up some story about taking photos for their blog (technically true, I suppose!) and captured the whole thing.
In their private art lesson for two, Tarah painted a tree landscape while Ben did a New York City skyline that had "Tarah will you marry me" in the sky. They kept their canvases hidden from each other until it was time for the big reveal; Ben admired hers first, then took her around to see his painting. While she closed her eyes, he got down on one knee and pulled out a ring.
She said yes!
Thanks to New York City Proposal Planners The Heart Bandits for setting up this awesome romantic moment.
