Proposal Photos

Bari & Blake ENGAGED!                                                                          Novemeber 9, 2013110913_348Now this was exciting!  I got a phone call from Bari’s father on Friday, asking me to go to  Bedell on Saturday to capture Blake’s marriage proposal.  I got to the vineyard and discovered that they were alone up in the loft, which is basically like a tiny little nest overlooking the tasting room with only point of access…not exactly easy to “spy” on them without being noticed!  Nonetheless, I lingered nearby, peeking through small openings and appearing to everyone else in the tasting room to be some kind of strange stalker. But Holy Cow was it awesome to capture the moment as it went down!  He got on one knee and I quickly hopped up the stairs a bit closer…I could have literally been 2 feet away from her at that point and she wouldn’t have noticed me.  Crazy Exciting.  They shared their moment before I made it known to her that I was photographing them, but then it got even even better…. as they stood at the top of their stairs, in a heaven of their own, their families began to make their way up the stairs to bring yet another surprise!  It was such a wonderful celebration, shared with their families, and what an amazing honor to be there and capture such raw emotion.  I can’t help but smile from ear to ear every time I look at these photos.  110913_017110913_024110913_038110913_109110913_104110913_130110913_261110913_131110913_121110913_145110913_146110913_148110913_174110913_225110913_258110913_205 110913_274110913_341110913_390110913_347110913_372110913_386110913_509110913_513110913_319110913_311110913_481110913_435110913_410110913_495110913_496
