Jon got in contact with me just before the weekend to see if I might be free Monday evening as he planned to propose to his Girlfriend Laura whilst they were staying in Aldeburgh on a mini-break. Photogrpahing a proposal has been on my wish-list for the longest time, and this enquiry just falling into my inbox felt like fate… of course I was well and truly up for it!
We discussed plans of exactly how it could happen. Either I could hide myself up and photograph it stealthy from a distance, or we plan a photo shoot and mid-way through I set it up so he can go down on one knee and Laura is none the wiser. We opted for option two, which also meant Laura would know she was having her photo taken, which as a female myself I know I would have appreciated so I’d at least have my hair and make-up sorted!
So I made my way to Aldeburgh in the late afternoon sunshine pinching myself at the incredible light and so excited for the shoot and to see Laura’s reaction. Little did I know it would literally bring her to her knees!
