I could not wait to get these images up on the blog. I literally couldn’t wait – this happened yesterday! Andrew asked me to be a part of his proposal to his boyfriend Ben about six months ago and I’ve been looking forward to it ever since. After a few location changes and finally a crazy thunderstorm the morning of, we all met in Boston’s iconic Public Garden for what Ben thought was a quick photo shoot for their Christmas card. After a few warm-up shots we moved under a big weeping willow tree that Andrew knew Ben loved. Andrew got down on one knee, Ben cried, he said yes, and there was lots of subsequent hugging and high-fives. We wandered around the city a bit more and then I stayed for the beginning of their ring shopping appointment at Brilliant Earth. This was such a neat thing to be a part of. Not only were Andrew and Ben super adorable and happy, but wherever we went people wished the couple congratulations and it made me proud of my loving and accepting city. After six years together this was such a special and fun way to commemorate the next stage of their life together.
Thank you so much for having me Andrew and Ben – you should totally have me shoot your wedding 🙂 Big congrats!
