Ming on a Photo Assignment

About six weeks ago, I received an e-mail from a young gentleman who asked if I could help him propose to his girlfriend. Of course, I said yes. My assignment was to shoot photos of New York City scenes with a note in the photos saying, "Say YES to Wai Leong!" I promised I won't post the photos until he had a chance to propose to her. So on May 25, Wai Leong proposed to Zee and she said YES!! CONGRATULATIONS!!

Wai Leong documented his "Project Proposal" on Marry Me Zee and created a beautiful video proposal for her. You can watch the video at Marry Me Zee (the second video down) or click on this YouTube word. My photos are among the three dozen photos or so photos he collected from around the world for her. Is that romantic or what?

Gosh, Wai Leong put me to shame. I was never THIS romantic!!

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!! Why can't my husband be this romantic? I have two nicknames for him, "cold fish" and "sashimi"
Do the math!

What a beautiful sentiment, and so romantically original! I imagine guys are under a fair bit of pressure when it comes to thinking of a unique and memorable marriage proposal. This one is awesome, and so lovely of you to assist Ming. I'll be sure to check out the rest of his pics ;o)

Wow. I never thought of that. I gave my girlfriend her engagement ring on our "April Foods Day" so she never knew if it was for real or all a joke. That was almost 53 years ago.

Nice photos.

So romantic! I love it when Daily Photo comes to the rescue! Thanks for visiting Toruń DP!

Ah bah humbug! I don't think it should be the male who's always supposed to propose. That's just too much pressure, like Belinda says, and anachronistic.

I proposed to my now-husband. I was nowhere near as romantic either. But it all came out fine since he said yes.

Ming, you softie...just by helping out Wai Leong, you showed your romantic side ;-)

That is so romantic! My husband proposed to me behind the main altar in St. Patrick's Cathedral (NYC). After I said yes, we were so happy we started crying & almost got thrown out!

woooow.... Actually I did not visit your site first, I was searching for Brilliant Rose and found that guy's site.

He mentioned he had a Ming from New York take photographs for him.

Then I saw the comments, Ming the Merciless! Wow, it's you....

Then I visit the DP, hey, the pictures are here!! It really is you!

Well done Ming!
