I feel so lucky to have photographed Joshua and Sarah's proposal as a surprise in downtown Easthampton along Nashawannuck pond. The pond sits at the base of Mt. Tom and behind a string of shops and restaurants in the old mill district.
The best part about this proposal was that neither Joshua nor Sarah knew that I was hired to be there! It took some coordinating but I managed to capture the moment.
Sarah has a love for corgis in bow ties, so her boyfriend Joshua decided to find a "stranger" (friend of his sister) to casually be walking her corgi in a purple bow tie by the pond where they were walking.
When Sarah saw the corgi up ahead, she immediately started running towards it to see if she could say hello. The corgi, named Nudnick, had a note tied to his collar that said, "Will you marry me?"
After she saw the note, Joshua got on his knee and asked her to marry her and she said yes!
