Diego’s proposal couldn’t have turned out more perfectly. Initially we had planned on Central Park, but last min Diego decided he’d like the proposal to feel even more intimate. He settled on the rooftop of the Hudson hotel, an awesome choice. I actually used to work at the Hudson Hotel back in 2010-11 shooting the weekly rock n’ roll party Ladyland. It’s a gorgeous hotel if you’ve never been! Diego and Maria live in Brazil and he knew she was taking a trip to NYC, so he decided this would be the perfect way to catch her off guard. Diego told Maria’s family (who were in on the surprise) to go suggest going to the hotel for a drink. Maria didn’t even know Diego he was in NYC! Gotta love a double surprise! When Maria arrived Diego was standing waiting for her. She was stunned! It was like a slow motion moment in a movie, just gorgeous and insanely romantic. They embraced and within seconds Diego was on his knee declaring his love to Maria while her family watched in the background. It was truly moving. Congratualtions to this amazing couple!
