Thanks to the lovely Dawn of Bellaria Designs, (thanks for the referral girl!!) I had the honor of shooting a proposal a few weeks back. It’s our first one and it was so exciting, I can’t wait to shoot another one.
Brandon contacted me just a few days before he was planning on proposing. What ensued was lots of back and forth emails and phone calls to come up with the perfect plan. After discussing a variety of options Brandon decided on the Boston Public Gardens and selected the perfect spot near the pond. He had a couple friends involved who placed the special items (the bear and bottle of personalized m&m’s) on a bench in the gardens and I staked out a location nearby waiting for them to walk in. He texted me when they were on the way into the park and his friends hid. A few people tried to sit on the bench before they got too close, I was able to ask them leave, still right at the last second a man sat down on the bench, I saw Brandon & Shirley coming so I wasn’t able to ask him to move. Still no matter that little snafu, I’d say the proposal went off without a hitch!
Congrats on your engagement Shirley & Brandon, I hope you had a great time celebrating with Justin Timberlake & Jay-z (they went to the concert at Fenway that night!! I’d say that’s a perfect way to celebrate getting engaged!)
We are getting ready for Megan and Marc’s wedding coming up in a few weeks. We are excited to kick off our 2012 wedding season with their wedding! We know it’s going to be lots of fun.
I thought it was the perfect time to post their engagement session. We met up for their session in Hopedale where they live. It’s where Megan’s family has lived for many years and is a special place. We won’t have the chance to shoot here for their wedding so that is why they chose this location for their engagement session. Drew wasn’t able to make this shoot, I had fun hanging out with them and their adorable dog Duncan. (Important tip! If you want to bring your dog with you to your session awesome!! Just have someone else with you to help with the pup).
