First it's a nephew, then it's a brother getting engaged. What a life.
My brother asked me to hide in the park where he was going to pop the question and try to get some good shots. As it turns out sunset was at 8:23, and at 8:40 he was just arriving.
I am disguised in my hoodie/baseball cap/earbuds as I sit on the grass. I watch them waltz on by... My head goes all giddy. And then I stand up. Hide behind a tree... and it finally happened. I used all the photography knowledge I could muster to try and make the shots look good. I had decided earlier that because the happy couple were so late, trying to get a "Real" picture was out of the question. So I said to myself, "Silhouette it is..."
Here's the magic that happened... Congratulations Josh. You're one lucky dude.
