I had such a wonderful time photographing this proposal. Both Liza and Steve are teachers that I have known for a few years now. I was so excited when Steve asked me if I would like to secretly photograph his proposal to Liza. I have always wanted to do that, so to be able to do so for close friends was even more special!
Like many couples that dream about their wedding plans before ever popping the question, Liza and Steve had hoped to get married in her parents' backyard. Steve thought this would be the perfect place to ask her to be his wife. The first few photos were taken while I was secretly sequestered away in an upstairs bedroom at Liza's parents' home. Her mom was gracious enough to go out in the yard for a few test shots before Liza and Steve arrived. I was far enough away that I couldn't hear anything he was saying to her... and she couldn't hear my camera clicking! His words were for her ears only, but even distance couldn't dampen their love and excitement.
The following photos were taken after Steve revealed my secret hiding place. For someone who had no idea what was in store for her that day, doesn't Liza look gorgeous?
Congratulations to both of you!!!
