Two weekends ago my roomy Jon Cole asked me to hide in the forest and shoot his girlfriend. I cannot tell you how excited I was to do this. My answer: “Absolutely I will.” This fulfilled an old dream of mine because, you see, as well as wanting to be a detective and fireman, I also wanted to be a sniper. Don’t worry, she’s OK…I was using a camera.
Jon had been dating Arrie, his beautiful girlfriend, for about six months but he had been anxious to pop the question for about five. Just kidding. Maybe four. So he planned this great little surprise for her and told her they were just going to a local park to study and hang out. She was totally surprised…had no idea at all. It was pretty cool to watch her excitement and his nervousness as he pulled out the ring. One thing I enjoy about this gig is that people let me capture some of their most intimate, life-changing moments.
It was fun to be a fly on the wall for this one, she even looked straight at me hiding in the trees at one point but apparently my ninja skills are up to par and she didn’t see me. Even Jon, who knew where I was, couldn’t see me. Excited to shoot their wedding later this year!!!
Here’s a few. Enjoy!
I love spring time in NC!
He was going to get up on one knee but she couldn’t control herself.
I think this one’s my favorite.
