So … SURPRISE! If you follow us on Instagram, you already know this, but we actually shot TWO proposals on Saturday! Can you believe it?!? In yesterday’s post, I shared about how I have been DYING to shoot a proposal ever since we started our business four years ago and this past weekend my dreams came true … TWICE!!!
Michael contacted me early last week to say that he was proposing to his girlfriend, Leah, while they were in town for the weekend and he wanted to hire us to capture it!! The timing worked out perfectly and we said YES!! ; )
Though they now live in New York City, Michael and Leah both went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Leah works a lot in Chicago for her job and this past weekend, Michael decided to fly out to pick her up on Friday so the two could drive up to Madison for the weekend to watch the Badgers play in the Sweet 16, see friends, and visit the city where they first met and fell in love over six years ago. He also knew this would be the perfect spot to propose to Leah : )
State Street is a famous street here in Madison, right off the UW campus and leading up to the Wisconsin State Capitol. An absolutely iconic place to propose (and get some amazing shots with the Capitol in the background!). We had planned ahead of time where exactly Michael would propose and the time was set for when they would be there. Caleb and I posed as pedestrians walking down the street … who then pulled out cameras and captured the whole moment when Michael got down on one knee : )
This past weekend was unforgettable for us. Caleb and I both agreed that capturing proposals is literally SO much fun and so invigorating!! What a JOY : ) Congratulations again to Michael and Leah!!!
Just casually hanging out on State Street … wonder what’s in that purse?! ; )
Here he goes!!!
