CARLA + RUBEN | DESTINATION ENGAGEMENT IN ICONIC PLACES NYC

Many years ago Carla had a hidden dream. One that she would only utter in prayer, behind closed doors where only God could hear her. A man after Gods own heart and her own -- Ruben came into her life over six years ago and they have been inseparable since then. Ruben is a man of peculiar character -- He is sensitive, artistic and a gentleman all the same -- He proposed at the AAA as they finished having one of the biggest conferences of their church-- It was a proposal taken out of a movie -- She had also dreamed of having her engagement shoot in New York since she loves fashion -- Ruben also loves NYC since he studied acting there as well. When they heard I was going to New York for a destination wedding -- they booked me on the spot!! "It was meant to be" was all that Carla would say to me! We planned to meet in the most iconic places of NYC for their shoot -- The day was perfect - As we began shooting everything got a little quieter... They were such naturals. I could hear their very own melody of love... Tender and sweet. Carla and Ruben  -- I could not be happier to have shared this experience with you -- You have shown me love in another form, thank you for trusting my ideas -- But most of all thank you for letting me capture the essence of who you both are!!
