Surprise Proposal | Tommy & Jen | Boston, MA

Over the summer, I had the privilege of photographing another surprise proposal.  I absolutely love these events. Seeing the shock, love and pure emotion of a surprise proposal is heartwarming to witness. On this day, Tommy led to Jen to Christopher Colombus Park in Boston under the guise of doing family portraits with his family so she was not surprised by my being there. His family was "late" so we started a few portraits of Tommy and Jen while we waited. Tommy walked Jen through the picturesque archway in the park while one by one his family and hers revealed themselves while reminding Jen of special memories they shared together.  Jen was in complete shock and amazement.  After making their way through the archway, Tommy steered Jen toward the rose garden where he had set up an acoustic band to play their favorite song. At the end of the song, surrounded by their families, Tommy got down on one knee and proposed to Jen.  Smiles, tears and lots of hugs followed.  It was a beautiful moment for all.  It was my pleasure to be there to capture this day for you!

Jenna & Dan | Surprise Proposal | Castle Island, Boston

0073-ftcb.jpg

I have never been a part of a surprise proposal before so when Dan contacted me a few days before his proposal to Jenna, I was more than happy to photograph it.  I was very excited to be involved, however as the day got closer, the weather for the appointed time deteriorated rapidly.   I was getting most of the plans from his brother Samir.  The plan was for Dan and Jenna to go running at castle island with their dog Summit, as is their routine.  I must have asked Samir a dozen times, "Are they really going to run in this hurricane like weather?"  He assured me that they do run rain or shine.  Some of Dan's friends were also there to hold signs and support. As we all gathered in the parking lot of Castle Island in Boston, we stood in shock and amusement of the insane weather. The real fun came when we rounded the corner of the castle to the water side of Castle Island. The weather that we already thought was terrible, got ten times worse.  We could barely hear each other over the wind, but still Samir assured me they were coming. The rest is captured below.  It was amazing, totally memorable, and very romantic.  I was honored to photograph it. It was quite an adventure and one that I will not soon forget. Congratulations Dan & Jenna!
