I had the most FUN experience today as an “Undercover Photographer”!
Here is the story:
I was contacted by Daniel, who lives in Canada, a couple weeks ago. Daniel had found me on the internet. Daniel told me that he was flying to MN soon with his girlfriend, Holli, and planned to propose to her under the new 35W bridge. He wanted to know if I wanted to photograph the proposal! How fun is that?? It was so funny, because I had just been thinking that day what a cool thing it would be for guys to set up a photographer for their proposals. It was like Daniel read my mind!
Daniel and Holli met while Daniel was in town building the new 35W bridge. I don’t know all the details of the story, but I know they met while Holli was working at Caribou Coffee in downtown Minneapolis. Today, Daniel took her there first, to the place they first met, and then brought her down to the observation deck below the bridge to propose. It’s a pretty quiet location, and it wouldn’t have looked quite right for me to be waiting down there with my camera (there was no one else there). So I brought my sister and my daughter, and pretended to be taking pictures of them, all the while capturing Holli’s special moment! It was so much fun.
Thanks Daniel and Holli for letting me be a part of this special day. I put together a quick storyboard of photos for you to share with all your friends and family… I’m sure you’re anxious!! Enjoy!
