A Surprise Wedding Proposal on Lake Union
To capture this to-be memorable night, Anthony hired me to coordinate the décor of the evening and to capture his wedding proposal to Stephanie! To set the mood, I staged candles, rose bouquets in glinting vases, twinkling lights, and a cozy blanket for the two to cuddle up in. Although it was a cold November night, the weather was perfect for the evening – clear skies and no wind!
Anthony and Stephanie devoured a steak and lobster meal while the yacht cruised around Lake Union (giving them a view of the Space Needle). After dinner, Anthony pulled Stephanie over to the side, and produced a speech with an engagement ring! He asked her “Can we big one big family?” since Stephanie recently gave birth to their new daughter. And, of course, she said “Yes”!
To capture it all, I took continuous shots with my Neewer strobe! Since it was so dark, I needed extra lighting to get every expression and movement. While shooting with my Sony α6000, I captured a full video of the proposal on my Nikon D3200. As final compilation, I gifted the couple with a short video of the proposal with some key images from the night.
Congratulations Anthony & Stephanie!
