Joe contacted me a little while back about shooting his proposal to Aileen and it killed me to wait for the day to come. He put so much thought into how it would happen, including a ring box with a video camera inside. Joe and I even scouted the art museum the day before so everything would go smoothly. The proposal was such a beautiful moment and the entire rest of the day followed suit.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again now: Aileen is the sweetest person. It was so fantastic to witness this day unfold for her. There was nothing but genuine bliss and I was honored to photograph it all. It was my favorite kind of shoot: no one was concerned with my whereabouts and every moment is of their own doing. Letting yourself get lost in it is what it’s all about.
Cheers to the happy couple! Thank you for allowing me to play a small role. It was such a pleasure. I absolutely cannot wait for the wedding.
