    Haha, all the plans were made only through him, so she was unaware and had no idea what I looked like! He just told me, "I want to propose and I want it photographed." I asked him a series of questions about their likes and dislikes of things to do together and presented him with a few options, letting him choose the final plan. I ultimately made all the arrangements and plans because he was at a loss. I just sat on the rocks and marked his spot with a predetermined object I left a few boulders down after scoping out my spot. It was a bit of a challenge to pretend like I was shooting birds as they walked by... I just kept looking up at the trees, periodically saying, "Oh, there's one" under my breath and taking photos of tree branches, while still watching them out of the corner of my eye until the moment I was needed...

    Wow! Hiring a photographer to also PLAN the proposal... You could add that to your resume, if only there were a market for it.

    Thanks! I was partial to that one, too. It was impromptu but turned out well. She was really smiley, which was great to see the excitement, but it also made her very squinty. I had to coach her on using trick's to smile more with her eyes, which I thought came through really well in that photo.

    For me, the best part of the whole set is the expression on the dog's face in the first photo.

    That was the moment the dog noticed I was there. It took several shutter clicks before he zoned in on where the sound was coming from.
