I still shake my head and laugh at how ridiculous my ninja cover was in my attempt to hide by the bushes and capture Kevin’s surprise proposal to Lourdes.
When Kevin was referred to me by my friend Christine, I was still on the fence. But when Kevin poured out his surprise proposal idea, I was immediately all ears and I said heck yes to all his plans… Just so happens that I love throwing surprises, he got the right person for the job 😉
I was honestly nervous… so I couldn’t imagine what he must’ve felt leading to the actual moment.
To add to that, my cover wasn’t the best as the spot of the proposal doesn’t offer enough tree cover, so I stood there for an hour and casually pretended that I’m taking random landscape photographs. The park visitors must’ve thought it was weird to stand in one spot for an hour, but meh, I didn’t care.
It was the sweetest moment ever. The mosquito bites were worth it. And the expression on Lourdes’ face was so touching. I don’t think I’d ever forget their moment anytime soon.
Kevin and Lourdes, thank you so much for letting me document your proposal. And thank you Christine for putting my work out there. It’s always an amazing feeling to know that your friends trust your work and they fully believe that you’ll deliver beautiful photographs.
“I choose you. And I’ll choose you over and over. Without a pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat. I’ll keep choosing you.”
