Reena + Raj. NYC Engagement.

Bomb threat in NYC. That was the news the morning I headed to NYC for Reena & Raj's engagement session.  NYC had just received some "legitimate" threats since it was the weekend of the 9/11 anniversary.  The warning was to be cautious of bridges and tunnels.  If anyone knows NYC, you know that the only way in is through a tunnel or over a bridge.  Awesome.

For some reason I tend to over worry about these kind of things.  But fortunately, there was nothing to worry about.  Nothing happened.  Everything was great.  Even the weather.  The east coast has had some pretty crappy weather the past few months so I wasn't expecting anything great.  But I was wrong about that too.  It was beautiful.  Sunny and 75.  Pretty much perfect.

After having a wonderful dinner with them and as we say goodbye, Raj says smiling, "Its only the bridges and tunnels."  Great.  Thats where I was headed.
