I had the honor of photographing a super sweet proposal two weeks ago.
I must say, photographing proposals is my NEW favorite thing. I don't know anything more exciting than seeing two people, who are in love, hug/kiss/cry and make plans to spend their lives together.
It just doesn't get better than that!
Here's the story:
The afternoon started out with a sweet picnic in the park for his girlfriend's birthday.
(Meanwhile I pretended to take pictures of flowers at the park, but really I was stalking them and getting pics like this!)
The plan was that after the picnic, they were going to walk to the arch at the park and he was going to propose. So I headed over closer, taking pictures of more flowers and waited for the moment.
And then...THE GIRL STARTED TALKING TO ME!! Uhm, yeah.
She asked if I was a photographer, and I told her no, I was a student at a photography school and my homework was to take pictures of flowers at the park. (ha) I said I could take a few pics of them if they were interested and I would email them to her. They both were super excited about it.
And I think it definitely gave him the little courage he needed!
I asked them to stand up to take one more picture.
And that's when the magic happened.
Now, see the arch. Isn't it gorgeous!!!
Afterwards, we let her in on the secret that I was hired, and not some random student at the park!! :)
It took her a while to understand, as I think she 100% believed my story about being a student, and was still in shock from the recent events!
But she finally loosened up and let me take a few more pics of their sweet engagement day.
So much emotion in this picture. I just love it!
You can see it's sinking in!
Seriously. How cute are they??!!
They were so much fun, and super sweet people.
They even demanded to have a picture with me before I left.
So ofcourse....I propped it on a bench with a 5 second delay....and this is what you get!
Ha. I might have dropped it a little too low.
So happy for A+N!! And so happy I was there to capture it all!!
