Location: Shasta Dam
Believe it or not, this was my first ever “proposal”. In the three years I’ve done photography I’ve shot countless engagement sessions, but for some reason never booked a proposal. Needless to say I was extremely excited, but also equally nervous! Jon and I had been in contact all day about timing/where to meet. I scoped out the location well in advance to be make sure we’d have perfect placement. Once they both arrived, remaining stealth was quite the challenge… I had to basically creepily take pictures of them from afar, waiting for the moment he got down on one knee. There were a few moments Joy would look over at me and I had to play it cool lol. Once Jon got down on one knee I was mildly freaking out inside, (and sounds like he was feeling the same way!) She obviously said yes and we got to celebrate with a mini-portrait session. They’re some of the coolest people ever & I’m so excited for their future together!
