You know what I’m afraid of? Rollercoasters, bees, and scary movies. You know what I’m NOT afraid of? PDA. In fact, I am all about it, especially when I’m photographing a gorgeous and super in-love couple like Chris and Bibi, who were constantly stealing kisses and wrapping themselves up in each other throughout our two-hours engagement session!
Our shoot started at their home for a more cozy session, and then we moved to Tibbetts Brook Park to change things up a little bit. I love that I didn’t have to prompt them at all to lean in and get close, either. Can’t you feel that passion and heat through your screen? YOWZA!
I asked these two about their love story, and Bibi told me “We met through a dating website called plenty of fish (pof) for short. However, we actually took salsa classes same studio and day just different times. Whenever I was on my way out, he was on his way in. He claims he remembers seeing me come in and out. It was through our mutual interest in salsa that he asked me through the site how good of a dancer was I and that's when we found out we took the classes in the same studio..” As for the proposal, Bibi said, “Chris did an amazing job ~ down to the very last detail. First, he asked my father around November for permission to marry me. He booked a suite at the William Vale Hotel, corner suite with a balcony and all. He decorated with rose pedals and had many props around the room leading to the balcony where he proposed. He printed pictures of us and placed in the room, decorated the bathroom with balloons and block letters saying will you marry me... I still remember his proposal and can't believe he did all of that... I fell in love all over again..”
And can we talk about the ring?
The couple is most excited about their upcoming wedding scheduled for June 2021 at New Dawn Foundation in New Rochelle, NY. They are happy about the venue and the fact they are doing their wedding their own way and not by tradition. Now, on to more photos ...
Congratulations Chris & Bibi. May you forever have a relationship filled with passion and love. I am looking forward in capturing your special day next month!
