Jeremy contacted me nearly 2 months ago. He wanted to secretly ask his girlfriend Sarah her hand for marriage. They are from around Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He planned a road trip with Sarah to Montreal and he ask me to capture this unique and love filled moment. Many discussions followed via emails to find a proper location for the shoot and plan how to recognize each other.
On the big day of the proposal, Montreal was hit by a 30cm snow storm but even a storm and an minor automobile accident couldn’t stop their love and his plan. I was posing as a tourist taking pictures on the edge of the clock tower in the old port of Montreal. I saw them walking down the boardwalk and when I saw them stop I started taking pictures and when I saw Jeremy drop on one knee to pop the question, I got closer to capture Sarah’s reaction. Shock is the best way to describe her reaction followed with joy and happiness.
Once the emotions calm down just a touch, Sarah had to called her immediate family. She was so thrilled with the big surprise. She also shared that when they we’re driving down to Montreal for their little adventure, she taught that it would be romantic and fabulous to get asked her hand. She didn’t know it but her wish came true a couple of days later.
We had a blast and all this snow offered a unique look to the city and various location.
Here are the images of this awesome, simple, genuine couple.
