Constanza and Christopher had a date at one of their favorite restaurants in downtown Raleigh and Christopher wanted to make their date extra special by proposing to Constanza. I do have to say when Christopher first reached out I was super extra excited for them!
I did my best to hide between a birthday party was happening around and use all the people to pretend I was taking pictures of them. A few minutes before Julia and Michael arrived to their restaurant where I was hiding at the restrooms to give him a microphone. Yes, I didn’t tell but I wanted to record this moment as well. I BIG BIG challenge. Me and the restaurant manager did a great team to drive them to the roof top.
My biggest fears in photographing proposals are being seen before the moment because it’s pretty hard to hide two giant cameras strapped to your shoulders. And missing the moment, most proposals happen in one to two seconds, the time when someone is on one knee anyway. While I trust my speed to capture the moment, my heart is always racing leading up to that moment! Plus, I wanted to record his words and take pictures at the same time. CRAZY!!!
Constanza was so surprised by Christopher proposal, it was so sweet to see her reaction and see their joy of soaking in the moment together!
It was such an honor to be a part of their special day.
Enjoy these sweet photos!!!
