A couple months ago, I received a message through my website. It was from a young man, named Brandon who was hoping to propose to his girlfriend, Lucy. Turns out, it was someone I had photographed before, with her pup, and she had been telling him about me. I didn’t have to think twice. I LOVE Proposals!! Even more fun, it was going to be in Boston, beginning at the famous Acorn Street.

After a couple weeks of plotting how we would pull off the proposal, without her wondering, we came up with a plan. Because Lucy knew me, and might get suspicious, we decided that I would pretend that I was there to photograph another couple. Fingers crossed!

I made my way to Acorn Street, which is often referred to as the most photographed street in America. There I saw Lucy and Brandon! I came over, got Lucy’s attention, and pretended not to know Brandon. I mentioned that I was waiting for my couple, and after a large tour group left the area, I asked them if they wouldn’t mind posing for a second, so I could test the lighting before my couple arrived. It was time!

They were both so swept up in the moment at first, that neither realized Brandon had put the ring on the wrong finger at first. Ha!

After a few moments, we spent some time walking around the area. It was a beautiful day in Boston!
