Sean and Megan | Hamilton Pool Proposal

Sean contacted me a while back to share his exciting plans to propose to his girlfriend Megan at Hamilton Pool. He really wanted to have someone there to document it to capture Megan’s reaction when he popped the question. I was all for it!

Proposal sessions are so much fun. Similar to a wedding, you are capturing raw emotion. What makes them a little different is that only one person knows you are there. It’s about as photojournalistic a session as wedding photographers can get. You can feel the emotion in the air; the guy’s nervousness, the girl’s excitement, the explosion of love and release of energy when it happens. It’s a wonderful experience and I am always thrilled when I get to be a part of it.

So congrats to Sean and Megan, you guys make a wonderful couple. The love you share for each that I saw that day was so strong and pure. Here’s to many happy years together!

And Sean, mad props and brownie points for planning it like you did:)

Enjoy the images, everybody!!!

These are so cute! I love the emotion you capture in your images, you have a gift for making people feel comfortable and themselves in front of the camera!
