Six years ago I was hired by a man who wanted me to photograph him proposing to the girl of his dreams on the Brooklyn Bridge. I was thrilled at the opportunity to document such an important event and arrived an hour early on the specified date. I realized I had never been there before in my life. Having lived in New York City for twenty-five years I was shocked to realize what I had missed.
It did not feel like a bridge at all! The place was filled with an intoxicating energy that I cannot even put into words but that seemed to infuse everyone there. Who could have thought that a bridge itself could be a romantic destination?! There are other bridges in the city, but nothing like the Brooklyn Bridge. I pretended to be a tourist taking pictures and followed the couple close by. She did not know about my existence until the time they stopped for a brief moment when the man got down on one knee and asked his sweetheart to marry him. She said YES! A year later they tied the knot and are now the proud parents of a gorgeous little girl.
