Kevin contacted me a looong time ago about photographing his proposal to Dominique. I was ecstatic! I love love love proposals and have always wanted to photograph one!! Kevin knew from the not so subtle hints from Dominique that she would want the proposal to be photographed….he listened. It took awhile for the stars to align and for their schedules to work out in a way that he could propose how he wanted to, but it was worth the wait!
I solicited Colt to help block me and watch for them knowing that Dominique wouldn’t recognize him. We hid behind a random car as we waited for them to cross the street and walk along Riverside Drive. I tried to be stealthy, but at 39 weeks pregnant and carrying a big ol’ camera I am anything but stealthy! We noticed a woman walking towards us giving us a really strange look, but we tried to stay focused. It wasn’t until she started to get IN the car that we realized it was her car we were hiding behind! Oops! So we ran and squatted behind the next parked car. As Kevin and Dominique walked further down Riverside Drive, we ran and hid behind the next car and the next car (pregnant belly, big hoopty cameras, and all). We stayed just a few yards behind them hoping she didn’t see us stalking them. Thankfully she didn’t and we were able to get close enough to them to grab a few shots of the proposal.
I love this next one. SO happy!! : ) Aren’t they just the cutest couple ever?!!
Congratulations Kevin and Dominique!! We couldn’t be happier for the two of you and wish you a lifetime of wedded bliss!!! : )
