I always feel so lucky and blessed as a photographer to have moments of being deeply involved with a family. This woman here is one of the many that I have had the great joy of capturing some pretty big milestones for over the years. Some happy, some sad, then back to happy. This shoot started out with just a few photos of her and her daughter, but I was pulled aside mid shoot by her boyfriend for a wonderful surprise. He was going to pop the question. The moments up to it I was shaking for him. The ring was tucked away in his coat pocket that was laying on the ground behind me. I then said, “hey lets change the look and add your coat. He grabbed it, reached in then tossed the jacket aside. PERFECT. Down on one knee he went and the rest well is history. SHE SAID YES. This fall I will be shooting there wedding in Lake Chelan. I could not be more happy for them. Life is beautiful.
