Andy + Amber // Proposal + Engagement // Watkins Glen State Park // Glenora Vineyard, NY

This is a very special couple to me. Andy is my brother-in-law (who I consider my brother), and Amber is my future sister-in-law (who I will consider my sister). So when Andy asked me to be there when he proposed to his girlfriend, and photograph it– I did not hesitate to say yes. Andy had planned this surprise proposal at a beautiful waterfall at Watkins Glen State Park in NY because Amber has always loved waterfalls. Andy dropped to his knee in front of a beautiful waterfall, with dozens of people watching and cheering on (it was peak foliage season with a lot of tourists at the waterfall). 

After the proposal near the waterfall, Andy was clearly relieved and Amber was simply glowing. We were all a bit more relaxed and able to enjoy the incredible hike that ascended more than 800 stone steps, leading us to more than 19 waterfalls. Afterwards, we spent the afternoon and evening at Glenora Vineyard doing a wine tasting and an engagement photoshoot. I had SUCH a blast with these two adorable kids. I am SO, so happy to welcome Amber into the White family, and share a name with her. They are so perfect together– like two puzzle pieces that have been left astray, waiting to find one another. They just... Make. Sense.
