Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking together in the same direction… EVEN WHEN HURRICANE SANDY HITS!

Meet Andrew & Shiwei, Our Newest Secret Proposal Couple!

Andrew & Shiwei

Andrew called us from Shanghai a few days before Hurricane Sandy, he was on the search for a wedding photographer to document his surprise proposal! After presenting him with some shots from secret proposals that we’ve captured in the past, we quickly shifted to a discussion about what he and in mind. Where would they be? What was his plan? Did she suspect anything? He originally had his heart set on Washington Square Park.

His timing was being sabotaged by Mother Nature!

Hurricane Sandy had aggressively hit NYC just a few days before his planned engagement date. Andrew wanted to meet up with Gruber Photographers to devise a new game plan. We worked it out, though…

We discussed each park. Researched the damage. Every restaurant Andrew had any sense of emotional attachment to was called to see if they’d be open… most were closed.
