Surprise!!!

This was my second surprise proposal to photograph!
Looking back, it's a wonder I didn't get in trouble somehow...

Picture this:
I'm dressed in all black...
I'm crouching down, deep in the woods of the park, amidst poison ivy & squirrels, hiding behind trees and keeping out of view.

I receive one last text informing me that they are on their way on the trail, but I can't see where they are coming, so I have to trust that I'll have a good vantage point, halfway into the ravine peering through the leaves.

Some people notice me along the way, and I give them the signal to "shhhhh"...and all that does is make them laugh and look around for whomever I'm "looking for"...

As I use my camera like a periscope, I discover that they have arrived and now is the moment...

If she notices me too soon, I've ruined the surprise...if I don't get into a good spot, I miss the moment...

the sun has all but set and we're deep in the woods...so it's getting darker and I can't use the flash...

He had it so perfectly timed & planned...
not just attention to "detail", but attention to HER

The love of his life...the one who promises to be with him until "death do their part"...

She says YES and they get to bask in the hopes of their future together!

It was exhilerating and inspiring and I was so honored to be asked to share in the memory!!!
