It's Proposal Season... are you prepared?!

Hey everybody!

I got a call from a guy yesterday while I was in Target doing a little Christmas shopping. He told me he was preparing to propose to his girlfriend this Christmas season. By the way, I LOVE Christmastime proposals! Is there a better way to maximize the awesomeness of Christmas than with a ring? I think not! And then he took the entire proposal to a higher level when he asked:

Will you photograph my proposal?

Um, YES! How thoughtful of this guy to think that she's going to want a great shot of this life-changing moment! Well done, sir.

If you're a guy in a similar situation, email me or call me (479-871-2479)! You can even just fill out the "wedding date form" in the right column over there (just put in your proposal date instead). I assure you, she will thank you later!

If you're a girl hoping to get a ring, leave this blog post up on your computer screen (ever so subtly) so he can read it.

I can't wait to share those images with you sometime between Christmas and New Year's, but to whet your appetite, here are a some shots from Mitch's surprise proposal to Maggie in Paris.

Talk to you soon,

This is the sweetest proposal story! Mitch didn't let Maggie have any clue about what was going on. They were in Paris visiting family. He popped the question on Pont Neuf, the oldest standing bridge in Paris. Quelle Romantique!

Here's me pretenting to be a tourist until the proposal was happening right in front of me...

This is my very favorite shot - we shot by the Eiffel tower the next day for some Paris engagement shots. It's very Henri Cartier-Bresson

Talk to you soon,


  1. Amazingness! These shots are fantastic and made me tear up! I'll never forget the day my husband proposed! I have some decent pictures and a video from someones point and shoot but nothing like this! LOVE THEM!

  2. Love the last one. I was wondering how you would sneak a pro photographer in on a surprise engagement... but in a place like Paris, the tourist 'disguise' is perfect! Kudos

  3. That is a beautiful story! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that last shot, just beautiful!
