Khadija & Ike: Brooklyn Botanical Gardens Engagement

The day I shot Khadija and Ike's Engagement session was an odd one.  First off, it was 60 degrees and sunny in November... awesome. Next, I generally avoid driving in NYC like it's the plague, so I strapped about 60 pounds worth of gear to my back and decided to rely on public transportation, which failed me at every turn. Then, a little frustrated, I met up with Khadija and Ike, and all my frustration melted away.  They are two of the nicest, most genuine people you could ever want to meet, and on top of that, complete naturals in front of the camera. They also have a great story about how they met, and Ike had one of the smoothest proposal stories I've ever heard.  "... the only thing he would change about her is her last name."  We had a great time walking around The Botanical Gardens and then the quick walk over to Grand Army Plaza.  I ended the day with a sore back, feet on fire, and a big smile on my face.  I love my job.
