Historic Richmond Town Engagement | Staten Island, NY | Daniel + Kara - Josiah & Steph Photography

Historic Richmond Town Engagement Session

Historic Richmond Town in Staten Island was the  perfect backdrop for Daniel & Kara’s engagement session. The cold followed us from Philly and the wind left a slight bite. I couldn’t help but think, “these two must be freezing,” but they were rockstars during their session! Shooting with them was so much fun. There was a lot of giggling, laughing and piggyback rides. Daniel & Kara were pretty nervous at first, but they really warmed up after a few minutes. It’s impossible not to smile when looking at these photos and seeing how happy they are together. Kara’s smile is infectious and you can see the love they both share.

Their Engagement Story: As Told By Kara

Dan knew I wanted a special proposal and I spoiled it a time or two when he planned it. He told me that he planned an outing for us as we had not been out in a few weeks. I, of course, badgered him to tell me what it was. He told me we were going to a concert on Friday night at 7:00 after work, so I rushed home and got ready. It was raining. I was running late and a little frantic, but Dan told me not to worry and to come in through the garage. When I arrived there was a hand drawn sign on the garage door leading to his apartment that said “step through and re-live our past.” When I opened the door, the staircase leading upstairs was lit with pretty lights and a ton of pictures of us from through the years. At the top of the door, there was a sign he made. It was a handmade Tinder profile of him that said “Swipe Right” and when you opened it, it was our tinder pictures and said “it’s a match!” Then another sign that said, “Now come outside for our now and forever.” He was outside waiting for me in the screen-house due to rain and had a hand strung a light into a frame with a hand molded heart in the center! Then he proposed! He managed to surprise me after all.

To Daniel & Kara
