Matt contacted me to see if I could photograph his proposal to his beautiful girlfriend at The Phipps Conservatory on February 9, at 4:30 p.m.
We e-mailed back and forth about the exact location on where he was planning to propose. Once we were clear about the location and exact time, we were pretty much set to go!
I arrived extra early that day to make sure I didn’t miss any important details. I’m not the best at directions, and even though I had been a couple of times to Phipps, I wanted to make sure I was in the right room waiting for them.
At 3:45 p.m., I was checking the lighting, walking around thinking of good spots to photograph them at, and praying there wouldn’t be many people at the time Matt arrived.
At 4:30 p.m., Matt and his soon to be wife entered the Palm Court room holding hands. I got in position, while making sure she didn’t notice me. The last thing I wanted was to spoil the moment! He took her to the center of the room, got on one knee and proposed to the love if his life.
The intimate moment lasted a couple of minutes, but these photographs will be timeless!
After the proposal, we did an engagement session around the conservatory where we took advantage of different rooms. Their favorite was the desert room, where I captured many candid moments of them playing, and expressing their love to one another.
We ended their photo shoot outside of the conservatory where the architecture is a perfect backdrop.
