In early August I got an email from Nathan about hopefully capturing his proposal – stealthily!

They were from Boston and were coming to Cherry Springs State Park to view the meteor showers in mid-August.

There was a small window where he wanted to propose. But he couldn’t set it up under a photo session ruse – because he was pretty sure she would figure it out!

He found me on THE KNOT and it worked out that I was able to make it the day that he wanted to propose!!

I got to the park early and walked around to scope out my options!

There is something really historical about this cabin but I can’t remember what it is!

I found spot on a hill behind some long grass to hie until the moment came.

I waited in my car until they got out of their car with all their picnic goodies and made their way to the spot.

Then I got into position!

They chatted and cuddled and just enjoyed being together.

THEN it was THE moment!

I love that she reacted before he could even get on his knee!!


I waited for Nathan to give me the nod that it was okay to come out of hiding!!


Isn’t that ring PERFECT!?


That’s the spot where I was hiding and waiting!

OH MY GOODNESS!! Can I shoot here EVERY DAY!?

I suggested that they go ahead and eat dinner and we’ll just keep taking ALL the photos!!


It started to rain just as we were finishing our session so it was PERFECT timing!!

Nathan & Gracie – I had such a GREAT time being able to capture this moment for you both! I wish you the BEST in your lives together!!!
