Because of the enormous attention I have received from the Times Square snowball fight photos, I was able to get back in touch with a couple that I met two years ago here in New York.

Sometime in December 2007, I had been shooting a corporate event at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Outside on the great stairs in the cold of winter, some guy was proposing to his girlfriend. I ran down the steps and took these shots and the strangers in front of the museum gathered around and applauded the couple.

Adam and Maria were married last year and used these images for the bridal shower and the wedding reception. Congratulations to you both.

How awesome is this city?
