When Joey contacted me to schedule a portrait session and mentioned that he was going to surprise his boyfriend by proposing during the session, I wanted to jump on my desk and do a little dance! This was the first proposal that we have photographed and it was such an honor to be a part of their special moment. The couple flew to Seattle for a vacation and we had originally planned to shoot at Chateau Ste Michelle--but our Pacific Northwest weather had different plans. We were able relocate to the Volunteer Park Conservatory, where the light is always soft and beautiful no matter how hard its raining. I loved the suits that they chose to wear, so dapper and perfect for the early fall. We added a little extra element to the session by filming the proposal with a GoPro camera and I hope this little film is something that they treasure forever!
