This proposal truly left me breathless.
It was set in the place that was most special to Nader & Brooklyn since they began - they had their first date there and their first kiss and some of the most meaningful talks of their relationship on that hill.
That day Brooklyn was having a girl's day with her best friend Michelle who talked to me about the proposal and we planned how to bring her to the spot where Nader was setting up the proposal scene. Essentially, while she was out with Michelle, I asked them both to come by and help me test my flash + practice some night photography and then I would lead them to the spot where Brooklyn's dreams would come true. ;)
As we were walking up the hill, she started to see all the little lights at the top of the hill where her future-husband-she-was-not-yet-aware-of was waiting for her and so she began to ask "oh what's that?!" Michelle and I were both tongue tied so I ended up just cracking some really bad jokes about how someone's probably on a romantic date and we can steal some light for our photos. Like I said, really bad, but she didn't say anything. We kept walking and when she finally noticed it was Nader she just got so excited and shocked she just kept saying "IS THIS DREAM? OH MY GOSH IT FEELS LIKE I'M IN A DREAM! IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING?!"
It was the loveliest night, the sweetest proposal. Twinkly lights and a glorious sunset, a full moon and full hearts. The whole night reflected their love for one another and the Lord and It was truly an honour to get to capture this incredible moment of their lives.
So go ahead, swoon.
