Three weeks ago I had the great privilege to document a live proposal in Riverside Park, Salida! It was quite cold and dark. I waited around the park for 30 minutes, photographing Christmas trees in Holiday Park until I spied the couple. I had never met them, but I was sent a photo of the two from earlier in the day, so I knew what they were wearing.
Michelle and Matt, Texas college students, dated throughout high school. Michelles’ mom said, “I couldn’t have written a better man for my daughter.”
After Matt dropped to one knee, and Michelle gave a teary “yes,” I revealed myself from my hiding locale.
I snapped a few photos, with the flash on, then we went to the Boathouse Cantina for the receiving line of friends and family who were waiting to see the happy couple.
After a few photos with the family, we went back outside for more photos – without tears.
It was a lovely event, and I was extremely proud to be allowed present at such an important juncture in their lives!
Congrats again to Michelle and Matt!!
Thanks for looking, enjoy!
