It’s not every day that I get to capture a proposal. But when I do it’s so much fun! This is the proposal story of Joseph and Hope.
Of the dozen or so proposals that I’ve photographed this one had to be the most nerve wracking! About an hour before the proposal was suppose to happen it started to downpour. I’m talking tons of rain. The plan all along was to do this downtown and it had to happen on a certain day because both sides of the family were in town. So I packed up all my equipment and headed downtown and hoped for the best. I got downtown a little early but waited in my car as long as possible as it was still raining. When I couldn’t wait any longer (I knew the couple was getting close) I got out of my car. Miraculously the rain had stopped! It was amazing. So the downtown area wasn’t very crowed because it had just been raining and the weather was perfect.
This sweet couple has been dating for 8 years and they are in the process of moving to Indy. Joseph wanted to propose at a location that was iconic to Indy to represent this next phase in their lives/relationship. I can’t think of a more iconic place to propose then the monument circle downtown.
Joseph had it all planned out… We had a meeting location and when he got to the meeting location he asked Hope’s parents (who was with them) to take a picture of the two of them in front of the monument. That’s when I started clicking away and Joseph dropped to one knee and asked the question! When Hope turned back around she saw that I was there taking pictures and both sides of her family showed up. She was surprised for sure! After the actual proposal and after Hope showed off her ring (wow it was a beautiful one!) I was able to sneak the newly engaged couple away for a few engagement pictures on the circle. It was a perfect day!
Congrats you two!
