I always get super giddy when someone contacts me about photographing their proposal. Ryan got in touch with me right before Thanksgiving asking if I would be available to meet him at Carillon Point to photograph his proposal to his girlfriend, Ali. Of course there was no way I could turn him down! I love the anticipation of waiting for a couple to show up, me hiding away, knowing that the lady is going to get the surprise of her life. Ryan and Ali were a bit late showing up to the site that we had agreed upon. I started to become worried and finally got a text from Ryan saying he was incredibly sorry but they were finally on their way! Later I found out that it took some convincing for Ryan to get Ali out as she hadn’t been feeling all that great. He ended up telling her it was a work function where he was getting an award at in order to get her to come! Of course she was over the moon when she realized that she would be getting a sparkly new piece of jewelry to wear on her finger. And no, he didn’t have a work function, but a romantic dinner for two planned to celebrate. Congratulations to Ryan and Ali!
