The Proposal…here’s the story! Tim had scheduled a fun couples session with me a few weeks back. He wanted the session to take place on Emilees last flight to Kansas City for the year before they (the avid travelers) travel to see each other somewhere else in the nation. I marked their session on my calendar and had the location in mind. Well, that’s until Tim called me 4 days before our session to “cancel” the couple session because it’s now a “proposal” session! I was excited about the change up but hearing Tim’s voice over the phone, I could tell that he was nervous because he wanted that day to be perfect. Tim needed a peace of mind of the location so we decided to meet 2 days prior to the proposal at Kaufmann Gardens to mark his kneeling spot.
The day of the proposal. Emilee had no idea what was going on but that this was going to be a fun photo session with her boyfriend. As for Tim, he didn’t show any signs of nervousness but more of an expression that this is the day that I will propose to the love of my life and I can’t wait to get to my “kneeling” spot. When I got the signal from Tim that he was ready, I gave directions to Emilee that I wanted to capture a tight shot of her with Tim fading out in the background but I wanted to do it in a different way. So, I asked her to close her eyes and look up at the sky which helped Tim and I get into our positions. The moment I told her to open her eyes and look at Tim – I heard nothing but my camera shutters going off but from what I saw through the cameras viewer were tears of joy from Tim and a “YES” from Emilee!
Tim & Emilee – Thank you for having me capture this memorable moment. I’m looking forward to your wedding day!
