Yahoo my first ever proposal shoot! I have been advertising and telling everyone I know all year that I want to photograph the real moment of the proposal and I was over the moon when Maurice, the lovely gentleman you see here, contacted me a few months back. We started planning the proposal photography and as I had done their family photos many times before I knew I was going to have to be sneaky/very inconspicuous about it. We arranged a meeting spot and I sat and waited in a bus stop so as to not be recognized. As I was waiting there for awhile on a very hot day I started chatting to a few people and they decided they were going to be my cover, so that when he gave me the thumbs up that he was ready they walked with me and from just across the street I managed to capture the moment for this lovely couple. We then had fun taking a few more shots around the Niagara Falls area.
Like anything that you are doing for the first time I learnt a lot that I will change and improve on for in the future. Looking forward to the next proposal and hopefully their wedding 🙂
