Kasia thought nothing of it when Anthony drove down to the river to relax by the water while they were out on their date. This was a typical outing for them and the very spot they had their first date. As they sat together sipping coffee, they took some time to reminisce about that first date and mull over details about how they met.
Unaware what Anthony was up to as he struck up a casual conversation: “Are you glad I called you back after our first date?” Kasia replied: “Of course!” Anthony followed that up with another question: “Would you be happy if I asked you to marry me?” Kasia didn’t hesitate with the answer… “Yes!”
Kasia is beautiful. Like, inside and out, through and through beautiful. She’s funny, caring, and exudes happiness. Anthony is a riot. He’s charismatic, thoughtful, and can easily strike up a conversation with anyone. Together they are best friends and a perfect pair. They share a love for caffeinated beverages, globe-trotting, and delicious food. Their love is genuine, their interactions playful and caring.
Upon our first meeting with Kasia and Anthony, the dream of doing a destination engagement session was already in the works. We were so excited to have been able to join them in New York City, one of their favourite places on earth.
We spent our first day shooting in Central Park, a pocket of New York that in itself has so many places to explore. We seriously had no idea just how big this place really was (we definitely got our steps in for the day)! Some of the better-known spots used as a backdrop for the shoot included Belvedere Castle, Bow Bridge, and Bethesda Terrace. Each nook and cranny holding a unique beauty.
Having really only spent time with Kasia and Anthony at their consultation and chats by phone before our trip, we hit it off immediately. They were surprisingly relaxed in front of the camera and got into a playful rhythm that kept us all in stitches throughout the day. Stay posted for part two of their session!
Kasia and Anthony, thank you for making this such an outstanding experience from start to finish! It was incredible to travel to The Big Apple with two of the most down to earth and kind people we’ve ever meet. We are so excited to share your wedding day with you (soon)!

“Choosing Manifesto to come to New York with us was the best decision we could have made. They captured our love for New York City better than we could have imagined. Manifesto provided a personal and artistic touch unlike any other. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for the memories of that weekend. We will be enjoying them for a lifetime to come”. – Kasia & Anthony
