After a relationship gone nowhere, Tiffany found the love her life waiting for her in the place she never thought she’d find herself.
They say love presents itself when you least expect it. Having just left a relationship, Tiffany went in search of a companion, but ultimately found the man she’s always been looking for. Finding Dwayne through a dating app, the two soon became closely connected and longing for more. For their engagement session, there was no simple theme, except family and love. Shot within view of the city and Brooklyn Bridge, the pair and their two-year-old daughter lovingly took photos showing that love is all they need.
