One of my all time favorite events to photograph is surprise proposals! T.J. called me and said he wanted to propose to Brooke with the Lights of Tampa Festival in the background. He had planned a scavenger hunt for her when she got home from work and it ended with him down on one knee in front of the beautiful night sky. It was actually a pretty chilly by Florida standards, and T.J knew Brooke would be cold so he brought hot hands and even had some extra ones for me! We had T.J. spot lit with 2 video lights to get the festival in the background. When Brooke walked up he read her a letter and then asked her to marry him, she said yes!
Marcella thought she was coming to Florida for a nice Memorial Day weekend getaway. Adam called me about a month before their trip and told me how he wanted to propose to the love of his life and have it photographed without her knowing. I remember him asking me if I thought that was a good idea, um YES! So, we planned it all out and I was so nervous because I didn't want her to see me but I wanted to make sure I captured those sweet moments and emotions. She said yes, and didn't see me until after she had:-) It was such a joy to be a part of, I remember the surprise when I got engaged and I love seeing people so happy! Adam had planned to have extra outfits for them so we could do their actual engagement session right after. And this is the epitome of why I am so blessed. Congrats you guys!!
"George" we'll call him is going to be proposing to his girlfriend and she has absolutely no idea!!! I am so excited I'll be capturing it "under cover":-) It's going to be tomorrow, Saturday 5.28.11 at 10:00am. I figured, why not live stream it? You'll get the play by play by David Wildes and see a happily newly engaged couple:-)
