Late last year, Jon contacted me because he wanted to have his New Years Day proposal to long time girlfriend Katie captured on camera. Now, if you know me, you know that I just love, love and I couldn’t wait to meet up with Jon at Paul Revere Park in Charlestown, Ma to make a game-plan! We wanted to make sure Katie had no idea that it was coming and wanted it to feel genuinely “them”.
With the help of their sweet dog, Spice, Jon lead Katie to the Charlestown Bells under the Zakim Bridge in Boston. As they strolled down, dinging each bell to make a song, I assumed the position. On their walk back, Jon stopped just shy of the first bell, got down on one knee & with the help of Spice, asked Katie to be his wife!
Of course she said YES! For me it was hard not to get teary behind the lens, but seeing the ear to ear smile on Katie was the best part of the whole day. She was just taking a casual stroll, after a long night celebrating the new year & got a beautiful morning she’ll always remember. When I showed her the pictures, she laughed and replied “This is so me!” What more could you ask for!
Congratulations to Kaite & Jon!
