It was only a week ago that I was emailing back and forth with Dan to finalize photography for his proposal to Kristen last Saturday! We met prior to the big day as well to find the ideal spot for him to pop the question to his girlfriend. We decided on a small park in Old Town that was between where they normally park their car and then where they were supposed to go to dinner. It is such a cute park located right by the water, and is actually pretty quiet for the most part in terms of people! Kristen was under the impression they were meeting another couple in Old Town to go to dinner, but Dan had actually planned for the proposal and then for just the two of them to have dinner at the site of their first date: The Chart House. Dan and I texted back and forth to make sure we were both on track with the schedule and where we needed to be! I, of course, looked like a super spy with my giant camera and zoom lens, tucked in behind a tree and some bushes. The few people that actually came down and walked through the park were definitely thrown off by me! Nevertheless, the timing worked out perfectly and I was able to capture the proposal from my hiding spot and also get some brief portraits in afterward before Dan and Kristen headed off to dinner. And...if you hadn't guessed it...she said YES!
Many thanks to Dan for his hard work coordinating with me, and to Kristen for allowing a crazy gal like me to photograph their proposal. You two were great! It was a wonderful experience, and I hope I get to photograph more proposals in the future! Enjoy the photos below!
This is next shot is one of my favorites. I got it as the two were walking away to go to dinner. It's one of those really special candid moments!
Thanks for looking!
