Late last night, a friend of mine from high school asked me if there was any possible way I might be available on such short notice to photograph his proposal to his girlfriend.
ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? An actual proposal? Not just an engagement session (not that those aren’t a blast), but the actual moment you are asking your girlfriend to share the rest of your life with you? I would move mountains to be there for that! I walk across fiery hot coals to be there for that. “I’d catch a grenade for ya…. jump in front of a train for ya…. take a bullet to my brain….” ……Okay, maybe I’m not quite as intense as Bruno Mars, but I would sit on a bench in -10° weather, bundled up like an Eskimo by the windy Delaware River for an hour waiting for you to finish dessert so that you don’t rush her and give away the surprise….. YES YES YES I would! 🙂 And happily!!! What an awesome privilege to be able to document such an important, intimate, and incredibly special moment for someone! Freezing a moment like that in time is worth freezing our butts off any. day. of. the. week!!!!
Now, I was about 200 feet away from the adorable couple you’re about to see, AND it was basically pitch black out aside from these post lamps, AND my camera was so cold the shutter was locking up….. BUTTTTTTT these images are absolutely adorable anyway!
I am so so so so so so so so happy for you and honored to have been a part of this day in your lives!
