December 1, 2022

These Washington Mew engagement photos were set to feel like a natural date throughout their neighborhood in Manhattan. Kat and Vinny loved the idea of an engagement shoot that took place at special parks to them that were right across the street from their high-rise apartment.

The Story of how Kat and Vinny met in Europe

When asked about their favorite things about each other, Kat and Vinny couldn’t help but laugh at the unexpected alignment of their answers. Kat’s favorite thing about the man she’s marrying? His energy! Vinny’s favorite thing about the woman he’s marrying? You guessed it—her energy! It seems that their vibrant spirits were destined to intertwine. Kat describes how Vinny’s mere presence lights up any room, leaving everyone around him feeling uplifted and inspired. Vinny, in turn, can’t contain his excitement as he expresses how Kat’s infectious enthusiasm and charisma bring an extra spark to every moment they share.

Their journey began unexpectedly in Europe, where fate brought them together through a mutual friend. Little did they know that this chance meeting would be the start of an incredible adventure. Despite living in different cities—Vinny in NYC and Kat in Tampa, FL—they embarked on a long-distance relationship, determined to make it work. Countless video calls, flights, and heartfelt messages kept their connection alive until the day came when Kat decided to take the leap and move to NYC. Their story is a testament to the power of love, the allure of vibrant energy, and the joy of embracing unexpected paths that lead to lasting happiness.
