A couple months ago, I was shooting an engagement shoot in the Public Garden for Jill and Mike. It was a picture perfect winter day in the Gardens. Honestly not sure that I had ever strolled through it in the winter before this, but man is it gorgeous with snow on the ground and people ice skating on the Frog Pond! I love this city.
Now.... I was walking back toward Jill and Mike, completely oblivious to what was happening next to me on the bridge. Off in the distance I see two women with tears in their eyes and iphones up and ready to go! Look to my right... and there was a beautiful couple face to face. ::OMG.... Steph get OUT of the way!:: I ran out of the way and quickly started shooting like a mad woman. I didn't know them at all.... not even a little bit. But here I was at the right place and right time. I wanted to capture this moment for them because... lets face it, ladies. Afterwards its one blissful blur!
Afterwards... I went right up to her mother and sister who were watching from the edge of the bridge to give them my info and said a little prayer that they would remember! Luckily... a couple days later, the new groom to be contacted me. I was beyond happy to send them the pictures I got of that beautiful day. (Now, in an effort to not be too much of a creeper I wasn't able to get any of her expression as he got down on one knee. But luckily his sister was down below the bridge capture the other angle! Perfection).
It literally gave me goosebumps watching and was probably the best photography-jump-up-and-down-this-is-why-I-love-this moment yet. THIS is why I do this. Real life... as it happens. Thats the good stuff. SOO... moral of the story... every girl would die to have pictures of THE moment! So guys.... think about it :)
I love this... she let out a big "OH MY GODDD"
