Kevin wrote to me with a wonderful proposal idea and wanted to see if I could shoot it in a way I wouldn’t be noticed to surprise his intended. He had had a storybook created with help from an illustrator– it looks amazing and tells the story of how he and his girlfriend had met, where they went on their initial dates, things that happened in their lives leading up to his proposal, and even had the illustrator draw them in the outfits they were wearing in these stories. He had me arrive early and place the book on a shelf we pre-planned for him to ‘find it’ at Books of Wonder, a fabulous independant children’s book store who’s proprietors were so gracious to let us do this… On the way to dinner reservations with her he made sure they had some extra time to kill and suggested they duck in and browse for a minute… his plan worked perfectly and she was so delighted by the book and his proposal at the end of it. I loved capturing this for them and was able to make a few sweet night portraits by some trees down the block that were lit up with Christmas lights. Congratulations!
