John and Victoria came to Boston for the week. John wanted to show her all the most picturesque parts of the city and had me waiting at Acorn St. Rain and thunder had been predicted, but the skies remained clear for him to pop her the question. As stopped her to tell her that he loved her, a small crowd noticed that I was taking their picture and stopped to watch. He got down on one knee and got an emotional and beautiful yes!
I must totally be a good luck charm, because every proposal I have shot so far has ended up with a yes :) This day ended up being a bit colder than we thought it would be and Alyssa definitely needed a bit of coaxing to get her to the spot but it all ended up working out! These two are incredibly sweet with each other and it was so cool to be able to shoot so many purely organic, intimate moments.
I can not say enough how much I love shooting proposals. Going through the pictures afterwards is always amazing because the moment it self goes so quickly. I love being able to help preserve such a quick, but important moment in people's lives.
I love proposals. I love love love them. I'm so happy that opportunities to shoot them keep popping up. It's also really cool to see all the work that goes in to them and to work with the guy on setting everything up. I'm usually in contact with a mom or bride, so it's nice to see the other side!
Burke and Lauren are members of the community boating on the Charles. He had asked me to go scope out the area a few days prior so I could let him know where to stand. I had a gorgeous sunset that day and we timed everything out perfectly so we could get that light again. Naturally, since Burke was proposing on what was the first day of Spring, all those plans went out the window as we got more snow. As I make very clear, I love snow, so I was still excited. We ended up getting a totally dreamy and magical landscape. Snow just makes everything more magical!
Sahil contacted me a few weeks ago to help him surprise and propose to his girlfriend Abhi. We had all sorts of plans, most of which were eventually totally thrown in the air because of the blizzard. We even had to move the day, as it was planned for Sunday, but the whole city was basically going to be shut down!
I'm so so glad that Sahil contacted me and I feel really lucky to have been able to be a part of of this. I love love and being able to help preserve such important moments in people's lives is really special to me!
Congrats to Sahil and Abhi!
