I was contacted a few weeks ago by a gentleman asking me if I could photograph his proposal. He wanted to do something very special for his girlfriend and thought that this would be the perfect proposal for her. I had so many questions, when, where, how, lol! The more we talked, I realized that this guy was so full of love that I had to accept the request. I chose the wedding industry because I love, LOVE! I love seeing people in love and I couldn't miss this beautiful moment that was going to occur with or without me... So, we started planning our scheme, lol. Jay, wanted to propose at the historic Jackson Square because his love, Stacie, is from New Orleans. He wanted to propose somewhere meaningful to her, don't you just love this guy, so what better place than one of the city's most visited landmarks. In addition to hiring me as the proposal photographer, Jay also inquired about a videographer. He wanted the entire proposal to be videoed so I reached out to one of my favorite videographers to join us on the proposal. The morning of the session, I arrived to Stacie's home to do her makeup, another detail Jay took care of... She was under the impression that we were just doing a standard couple's session. At one point, she said, "I have all these empty frames but no really nice pictures of us to put in them." I chuckled inside because little did she know, her boyfriend would be taking care of that problem permanently. As a part of our plan, I told Stacie and Jay that I invited a videographer out to film their session as promo for my new website. It was the only plan we could come up with that would explain why a videographer would be at their session, lol!!! I think it worked because I gave an oscar performance and Stacie didn't think anything of it when David arrived.
Check out Jay's proposal below and take a peek at the beautiful video of the entire thing!!!
