There’s just something about witnessing a proposal that makes us tear up, and whether we know the couple or not, being privy to the moment is just magical. We’re so excited to feature a proposal today, where the bride-to-be didn’t know that her boyfriend had hired a photographer to capture the moment!
A bit more from the photographer, Ashley Michelle Photography: “Evan contacted me about two weeks before he planned to propose. I was so excited! I met Evan at “the spot” the Monday before the proposal to go over the details of the surprise. Evan was planning on taking his then girlfriend Erin out for their one year dating anniversary. They would take their boat from Middle River to Anchorage Marina and then walk to “the spot” which was the corner of S. Ann & Thames. This spot had sentimental meaning to the couple because Evan and Erin had a long relationship talk here about what they wanted out of life and where their relationship was going before heading to dinner on Labor Day of 2012. Love that he was thinking about all of these little details–so sweet! After the proposal, both sets of parents would be waiting at John Seven’s Tavern to celebrate with them.
On the day of the proposal, it was raining on and off the entire day. But this proposal was happening rain or shine. Luckily, the rain held off once the couple docked. I was pacing back and forth at my spot waiting for their arrival and finally I spotted them. They walked to the spot and I followed slowly…..trying not to get too close. They were talking and just looked so cute and content just being with each other while looking out at the water. Finally Evan got down on one knee and Erin said YES!! The whole thing was such a surprise and then she found out her parents and Evan’s parents had been watching the entire time and were right across the street.”
Congratulations to the lovely couple!
