As the week came to a close, I got a visit from a colleague at work who told me about his upcoming engagement he was planning for Friday night. It sounded so casual yet so magical: dinner and drinks at Tyler's (where the couple's first date was), followed by ice skating at the American Tobacco Campus, and then a surprise proposal at the pond by the Full Frame Theater. I strapped on my camera, dressed in dark colors, threw on the long glass, and acted like tourist in the Bull City as these two ice skated throughout the evening and then kissed the night away. I stalked the two throughout the night and patiently awaited the special moment. All of a sudden, after relaxing at a picnic table by the pond, Richard dropped down to one knee. His proposal was so genuine and sweet. Caty couldn't believe what was happening before her eyes. She was quickly enveloped in shock, then bliss, and then draped in love and euphoria.
I was so honored to be able to photograph this moment in Richard and Caty's life and am still smiling about their engagement! These two have known each other for years and started dating about a year and a half ago. These two are so full of love and it's written all over their faces for the world to see. I'm sure these two will have smiles on their faces for eternity after their sweet engagement last night.
Congratulations, Richard + Caty! Thank you for allowing me to capture this milestone in your life and create heirlooms for you and your families! Best wishes to the both of you!
