Last month I had the opportunity to photograph the surprise proposal of Carolina and Sam. Carolina’s mom contacted me and told me that her daughter was going to be proposed to at the Ramadan Iftar dinner and wanted the special moment to be photographed. I was so excited because I had never photographed a surprise proposal and I’ve always wondered how sweet it would be to witness and photograph such a life changing moment!
The proposal happened when everyone had enjoyed dinner and the party was winding down. The couple stood up and went to the front of the dining room. Sam had his simple but very sweet speech, then he knelt down and proposed to her! Oh how everyone was so ecstatic! After she said yes, there were cheers and tears and lots of hugs. Everyone wanted a photo with the newly engaged couple. I snuck them away for a few portraits together.
It was an exciting day for me to be hired to capture such a special moment. Congratulations to this beautiful couple!!
