This photo shoot was an absolute blast! I spent weeks working with Brad on the day he would propose and making sure that I would be there to capture it all for them on “film.” While there, I had to try to make it seem like I was there for another purpose, so I focused on photographing some trees while the two of them talked and played with their dog at the local dog park. At first, I thought she, Elyse, was on to me, but she just questioned Brad why the weird guy with the camera was taking pictures of trees at a dog park. I was seen, but cover not quite blown, thankfully! From there, Brad signaled he was ready to propose, so I waited patiently for Elyse to turn her back so I could turn the camera toward them and snap away!
They are both fantastic people. Elyse greeted me happily after the proposal and we took a few more pictures. It was nice to see a couple that met in high school, make it through college, and finally take the next step in their life together. I have no doubt they will live a happy life together and I hope I get to be there to help capture more of it for them! Check out a few pictures from the day below!
