Brian & Fiona's Proposal

A Copley Square Proposal

Several weeks ago I got a surprise email from Brian telling me his big plans for proposing to his girlfriend Fiona! And I practically squealed as I wrote back to Brian telling him how excited I was! (I think I might have squealed on the phone too ;)). He couldn't wait to pop the question and he wanted to make sure that the moment (well really the moments following) were documented for them to remember for years to come. After a few location changes, Brian finally settled on the Skywalk at the top of the Prudential Tower in downtown Boston as the spot where he would pop the question.  

My trusty assistant (aka Hubby!) and I waited patiently in the food court below until we got the text that the coast was clear (and that she said YES!). Once my phone rang we hurried up to the 50th floor where we met Brian and awe struck Fiona as they basked in their just engaged glow!! Immediately I was taken back to the night that Dave proposed to me! There is just something so incredibly magical about your engagement and I loved being able to watch Brian and Fiona experience it as well!!

Congratulations Brian and Fiona, I couldn't be MORE excited for the two of you! Enjoy every minute of this planning/engagement/staring-at-your-ring-ten-times-a-day period of life!! I truly is something completely special!! Thank you so much for asking me to be a part, it was an honor!! Enjoy!Since I wasn't there for the actual proposal we decided to reenact the event:).Brian proposed at the Skywalk on top of the Prudential Towers. It has amazing views of the entire city!After we warmed up a bit inside I took these two love birds for a walk around Copley Square including a stop at the Boston Public Library, one of my favorite spots in town. Brian was pretty excited, can't you tell?!A favorite from the night for sure!Despite the frigid temperatures these two were the best!! How adorable are they?!As this all took place later in the evening, I relied heavily on my flash and off camera lighting. And while this is a big departure from my normal style of natural light shooting, I'm pretty excited with the results! (For the photographers, I used two 580ex II flashes, two Pocket Wizard transceivers, a Lasolite softbox on a monopod and a Husband to carry it all!)
