Last weekend a friend of mine asked if I could capture a surprise engagement proposal. I have never done this before so I jumped at the opportunity. My friend said that the proposal would happen on the bridge of the Japanese Garden at Cal State Long Beach.
So I made it to the Japanese Garden at the same time the soon to be engaged couple did but I had the element of disguise since she didn't know who I was.
I waited on the opposite side of the bridge and had my camera with the 70-210 F4 telephoto lens attached to capture the event as it unfolded.
As you can probably tell she was extremely surprised and shocked. She was glowing with happiness.
It was a privilege to be able to capture a such a wonderful event.
