Photographing proposals is so much fun! When my friend, Stephen, called to ask me to document his proposal to his high school sweet heart I was all over it. We chose a location where the light would be nice & where it wouldn’t be weird for a photographer to be there taking pictures of the pretty scenery. We set our time to “meet” and the spot where it would happen & let it go from there. As I came over the hill & saw them standing there looking at the Alabama River, we made our hellos, I mentioned to not go much further because it was slippery down there, Stephen flashed me the ringing telling me it would be soon, & I kept walking slowly the other way. As I heard them head further down the path I turned & began shooting their story.
To say Rebecca was surprised is an understatement. She had no idea & really thought I was just a bystander taking pictures. There were tears & shaking (even I shook with all that adrenalin pumping), & lots of hugs & kisses. It was so sweet to hear the words they shared between them & how excited they were to be getting married after being sweet hearts for so many years. Their love story is an amazing, God covered one. I’m so happy for them!
