Today I was honored to photograph a proposal. So much went into the planning of the day. Sterling came to me about a month ago and we agreed that I would be his photographer. He has so many details planned and a beautiful setting with the help of his cousin, James. I love the Marry Me Sign. And the bottle of Wine. And the little domed dish for the ring. And lights on the napkins too. A fantasy for his beautiful princess, Amy.
Today was that day. I arrived early and toured the location in Malibu. It was just gorgeous. The sun peeking out through the trees. The table adorned with flowers, there were so many special touches to make it a romantic fantasy. The emotions were just as you would expect. Not only was Amy surprised but overtaken with joy and tears too. Sterling was also overcome with pride she said YES - but he knew she would.
What I love so much about what I do is sharing those happy moments and recording them for my clients forever. Some of those moments are meant to be private. There is a fine line for me of giving people some private time and sharing their emotional time to record for friends and family for posterity.
Congratulations to you, Amy and Sterling. Thank you for sharing your special day with me. Or as Amy said "This is the best day of my whole life". I hope you both have many more Best Days of Your Lives as you make the journey together.
