I photographed a proposal

002002 I recently had the opportunity to photograph a proposal. 

The proposal happened at Deep Cut Gardens in Holmdel.  I received a call from Austin about 2 weeks prior to the planned proposal date.  He asked If I photographed proposals, of course, being a wedding photographer.  We discussed his plans and settled on a time on that day.  I arrived early as to not give away my reason for being there.  The park is a common place for photographers, either photographing the park or wedding and portraits.

a fun enjoyable experience and a great way to help the couple start the wedding planning.

Congratulations, Austin and Olivia.
