I know I have “new favorite things” all the time. Elopements, backyard weddings… but seriously, I think proposals are my new-new favorite. Matt contacted me about his backyard proposal to Heather a little last-minute, and we worked it out. My biggest challenge was to discreetly photograph this moment in a yard with only two people in it, without her noticing me creeping around the corner. Luckily, Heather was so preoccupied with Matt’s touching readings and declaration of love that she didn’t notice me until after she had said yes.
Though the vantage point is pretty singular (I was hiding behind the side of the house, sniping with a long lens), I think Heather’s emotional reaction is one of my favorites!
