I absolutely love shooting engagement proposals! I think that everyone should have this special moment documented! Shane+Kim met at the University of Maryland Dentistry School, but after school, the Air Force took Shane to Oklahoma, and her residency took Kim to New Jersey. Shane had emailed me, letting me know that he was flying to Baltimore, to meet Kim, and that he was going to propose while they were here. So after an elegant dinner at the Charleston, they strolled back to the Baltimore Marriott, where they were staying, but stopped in front of the Four Seasons, where Shane popped the question! And I did cue that sailboat to cruise by at the exact moment that Shane proposed! hah! After a few pictures, and calling all of their friends & family, Shane+Kim were off on a moonlit cruise through the harbor!
One of the reasons that I love proposals, is that it’s a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of moment – I never really know what to expect, and have to be prepared to make spur of the moment decisions/changes. In this case, dinner took much longer than anticipated, there wasn’t much of a spot for me to “hide”, as Shane+Kim were approaching, an entire family decided to camp out in the spot that we had chosen, and finally, some random lady strolling along, decided to stop *right* in front of Shane who was about to propose to Kim – with me waving frantically for her to move, without letting Kim see me – it was almost comical! The adrenaline rush was alive & well 😉
Shane+Kim – congratulations!!
Much Love, ♥ tPoz
