Last week, I had the immense pleasure of capturing the sweetest moment for one of my oldest friends. You see, over time, I have bothered my long time friends and always joked about hiding in a bush when it’s time for a proposal. Not one has taken me up on it. Until now. My oldest guy friend messaged me last week, asking if I was free on Friday. My heart raced – I knew what I was about to be asked. And honor is all I felt. Honor as I hid behind a rock to photograph the sweetest Lands End Proposal.
My heart raced after the hike up to the Lands End Labyrinth. I was surprised when I got up there that the labyrinth was no more – someone had adjusted the rocks into a heart. But not the worst for what was about to happen. Moments later, I received the text – they were on their way up. I placed my phone near a rock to take a video, and I was geared up with three cameras as I stared out a the Golden Gate Bridge. They approached the heart, I hid behind the rocks. Moments later, Alex turned to his girlfriend Veronica, on her birthday, and got down on one knee.
A moment she had been waiting for. A moment she slightly suspected over the holidays. But a few weeks later, on her 29th birthday, her best friend asked her to marry him. Surprised by me behind the rocks – we celebrate their love with some few photos around the Presidio and their Lands End proposal.
to the couple
Alex and Veronica, Congratulations! I loved the honor of being there for such a special moment on a special day. It means the world to me to be entrusted with special moments like these and I can’t wait to see what this next phase of life brings for you two.
