NOT ONLY did Keith and I enjoy ourselves immensely watching the returns with friends at a party in the east village, we got ENGAGED last night! About 30 seconds into the wild celebration that ensued after NBC or whomever we were watching officially called the election for Obama, Keith came over to hug me (I put down my camera for a moment) and he took my hand, said he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, and put a ring on my finger! Like, a diamond ring! That he saved up and bought for me! I couldn’t beleive it. It was a fitting moment for him to propose- we are both pretty politically invested/interested people and had been obama converts since his speech at the 2004 DNC, which had made us both cry. Well, 4 years later here we are crying together again, this time with happiness for our future together. It’s been a long time coming, oh yes, we’ve been living together for 5 years, we’re practically married already, but let’s face it, weddings are a lot of fun. And we’re going to have one! Yay! Here are my favorite photos from the party, and i’ll post a few from Jeff Zorabedian, my friend and frequent 2nd shooter/assistant at weddings– he was nearby and saw what was going on –he got these great shots of us when he noticed what was transpiring between us!
and then someone else (forget who!) took this pic of Jeff with us in the background… I had just shouted “we’re gonna get married!” and Alex, the host of this party, is on the left pointing at us… what a night!
Here were some of the shots I took before and during the victory announcement…for some reason they’re posting out of order in this gallery…
