Josh and Mary

I got to do something yesterday that I've not had the opportunity to do before and it was just so wonderful. I received an inquiry from Josh last week about shooting his proposal to his girlfriend, Mary. It was to be a complete surprise to her, and luckily it worked out just right. Josh and Mary went to an early dinner at Due Amici, so I snuck in and captured a few shots of them while hiding behind the bar and some of the servers. It was tricky, but it worked! Then I ran over to the Kelton House to hide in the bushes to await their arrival. Josh had set up a garden trellis complete with flowers and lights, and when I heard them come into the park my heart started racing!! I was so excited for what was about to happen, and of course that excitement was mixed with a little nervousness as I hoped I wouldn't be spotted there in the foliage! I don't think Mary even noticed the sound of my shutter in her total surprise at Josh getting down on one knee and presenting her with a ring box. It was just so adorable! We then spent a few minutes around the grounds taking a few images for them.

What makes this extra special is that Josh is deploying to Afghanistan tomorrow. I wish him all the best and that he returns safe and sound to Mary and the start of their new life together.

So here are a few shots of our time together. Congratulations, Josh and Mary!
