Leah is a theater director in New York City. Rachel is a history teacher. What better place to get engaged than the set of Hamilton with the assistance of Lin-Manuel Miranda?! Yes, that actually happened. These two are the quintessential New York City couple. For our engagement session, we started at their place in Bedford-Stuyvesant and then headed out to the New York Transit Museum (which is my favorite place in NYC), ending in their old neighborhood of Prospect Heights, where they lived together for years.

Meet Wilde Scout Photo Co.: Raised in Brooklyn to Cuban-American parents, I grew up naturally refining my taste for bagels and cortados. For four years, I worked as a photojournalist for the United Nations. Based in Rome, Italy, I traveled from place to place on countless adventures, uncovering stories in Kenya, Burma, Thailand, and Rwanda. My experiences around the world as a photojournalist were only the beginning. Two things happened to me while based in Rome. (1) I fell in love, and (2) I was hit by a car. Two accidents, one happy and one not-so-happy, inspired me to start Wilde Scout.
