Surprise proposals always give us such an adrenaline rush! We met with Alex on Thursday up at Libby Hill to plan out how he was going to propose to his girlfriend, Ellen, on Saturday evening. We chose a time with great lighting, picked a spot with a gorgeous view, and were fully prepped for him to pop the question.
On Saturay evening, David and I headed up to Libby Hill with a blanket and a picnic basket to disguise ourselves as a couple enjoying the sunset as we waited for Alex + Ellen to arrive. We hid our cameras in the picnic basket and waited until we saw Alex drop down to one knee before pulling out our cameras and starting to shooting.
It was the perfect moment! Ellen was so surprised and instantly started to cry all the happy tears. Everyone at the park who had seen what happened started cheering and screaming congratulations.
We gave them a few moments alone and then took some cute photos of them being newly engaged! Congratulations to Alex + Ellen!
