A Frozen Proposal

    I was contacted by Adam during one of the coldest weeks that we've had in my corner of Minnesota.  Adam wanted a photographer to capture his proposal to his girlfriend, Larissa.  He had most of the details worked out:  where (The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum); when (11AM); how (in an isolated spot where no one would be); and why (he had a group of family and friends waiting at a nearby winery to congratulate them).

  After several back and forth phone calls, everything got worked out.  

  I believe in spoiling my surprised engagements, sometimes I think I should be a surprise proposal planner!  I had purchased a throw to keep them warm (it was only 7*!) and had hidden champagne flutes and champagne behind the bench where the proposal would take place.  I like to place candles, but since it was extremely bright and sunny the day of the proposal, I decide that candles wouldn't have much of an impact.

  I wandered around the area during the appointed time and "hid" as they walked to the isolated bench.  Once they walked down the trail, I followed at a distance to capture images, but not too close, I didn't want Larissa to know I was there.

   On bended knee, Adam proposed.  Once she said yes, and they hugged and kissed, I finally made my presence known.  The best part?  Larissa had no idea that I was even there!

  After toasting with champagne and additional images of the two of them, they rushed off to join their family and friends to celebrate the engagement.
