Boston Proposal | Boston Fan Pier

Engagement, Surprise Proposal

How they found me

For his Boston surprise proposal, Patrick found me through his sister. I had photographed her adorable family a few years prior. His sister’s family had moved away a couple of years ago but kept looking back upon our images. I am always so flattered by the fact that my images are such keepsake mementos in people’s lives. People tend to find me through referrals and positive word of mouth. It’s always so rare when a photographer’s body of work matches their portfolio. I’m so proud that people keep coming back for more because I deliver.

So when it was time to propose to his girlfriend, Patrick knew who to reach out to. We chatted over the phone prior to the surprise proposal to set a date and time when this was going to unfold. He told me a bit about her style and their story. Most of the time I work just off people’s descriptions of themselves, as I rarely ask for photos ahead of time. I was excited to see this all unfold against the beautiful backdrop that the Boston skyline provided. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect engagement.

The proposal itself

I acted like a tourist taking photos because I had no idea what they looked like and I had no idea when they would be arriving. Patrick kept me updated that they were running a bit late but getting into their uber. It was game time. I saw the beautiful couple coming toward me and I tried to get into position to capture it all without drawing attention to myself. Kerri was so caught up in the moment that I was able to capture these images without her breaking eye contact with her beau. Now that’s love! Kerri said yes and I came over and congratulated them. This was a dream surprise proposal as all of the elements just came together perfectly. It was a cold Boston winter’s afternoon, but look at that glorious light.

We spent the next 25 minutes just wandering around the Pier and the Boston Children’s Museum area to just soak in the freshness of the proposal. She was so ecstatic and happy. I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple to capture this moment for.

Please enjoy their images.
