Mitesh called me as he was on a mission to get some great photographs of his upcoming marriage proposal to his girlfriend, Carolina. Being it was on a Sunday I as pretty booked up but I really love photographing marriage proposals as they are so beautiful and emotional so I squeezed this photo shoot in which took place at Inglenook Winery in St. Helena, CA in Napa County. Look at those smiles! I am so happy I found the time to photograph this magical moment and I look forward to their upcoming wedding!
Such a fantastic morning as I was lucky enough to hide and be a “spy” my other secret favorite profession. Matthew called to say he was going to propose to his longterm (that’s 9 years) , Jackie, at Gravity Hill above Petaluma in Penngrove. So he sent me a pin and I met him on the top of the hill and there is literally nowhere to hide. So I get out of the car which my camera and my huge 200 mm lens and ask, “Do you know what valley that is? I was hired by a real estate company to take a photo of a certain valley.” Then, I introduced myself to make sure indeed, This was Matthew and Jackie. It most certainly was. So….I sauntered up the hill and pretended to take photos of the landscapes when Matthew bent down on one knee and popped the question. Of course she said yes….Look at those in love, happy faces. Congratulations Matthew and Jackie!
