Greg and Marissa’s proposal has definitely been one of my favorite shoots. I’ve been photographing weddings since 2007 and have only had the opportunity to shoot two real life proposals. Proposing myself, five years ago, I know how nerve racking it can be and how special it is to have that moment photographed.
Here is a little back-story on this shoot. Marissa has a twin sister, Maddisen, which contacted me to photograph Greg proposing to Marissa. Maddisen, Greg, and myself found a great spot near the falls, and coordinated through Google images as to where would be best for photos. We then decided since Greg and I had never met that I should wear an orange hat to identify myself. When Greg and Marissa reached the falls, he would ask me to take a photo of them with his iphone, and then he would propose! The plan worked flawlessly, and I was able to video their proposal from a second camera on a tripod.
It’s shoots like these and all the weddings that I get to capture couples in some of their happiest moments. I couldn’t think of a better job where I can combine happy people with my favorite hobby.
I have photographed well over 200 weddings and I love that everyone is unique and special in their own way.
I love getting to meet new couples and learning more about who they are as a couple.
