Thinking about Proposing? Capture the Memory!

She said YES!

Back in early 2007, I accidentally caught a proposal as it took place. I was doing a photo shoot for a friend on the rooftop of the Tremont in Galveston, Texas, and I had noticed Amy & Zach off to the side while we were up there. When I heard her happy squeal, I instinctively spun around and started snapping. I caught her as she hugged him and said yes. I waited a bit, and then told them what happened, and that I had photos. It was the coolest thing!

With New Year’s eve just days away, I realized I should post about this here! Planning to propose to that special someone — on New Year’s eve or any other time — and want photos to capture the special moment? Let me know! I’m available to come out with the long lens and the camera, act very stealth like, and capture the whole thing! I’m a photo ninja! Let me know!

Kiss with a Kick!
Amy & Zach’s Engagement Session!

  • What a fabulous idea. Unfortunately I don’t think you have a lens long enough to reach where I am (Western Australia) which is a shame as your photos are gorgeous. Good luck with it!

  • My girlfriend was over last night and I read this blog to her… we both were awwing. This is a GREAT idea and that is so exciting! I’m going to happen to leave this blog open for my boyfriend to read. 😉

  • I have visions of you hiding in a tree stand ready to pounce! Great idea, nothing like capturing “real” moments – the authenticity can’t be matched in an e-session.

  • I actually did this. My (now wife) likes to be my “assistant” when I shoot; hold my tripod and such. A few friends were asking us for pictures of the 2 of us, so I said “Let’s go to Valley Forge park and take some pictures”. I put the ring in my camera bag. Once we were settled in the park, I had camera in hand, and asked her for the lens in the “wooden box”. She opened it, thinking it was a lens, and found the ring. Here’s a picture of her at that moment:
