Post 43: Josh Duboff proposal photo recap
Last Thursday, I headed down to the capitol to take some photos of Josh proposing to his girlfriend.
Josh originally contacted me a few weeks ago, and after over 40 emails, a few phone calls, and a face-to-face meeting about half an hour before the photos, we were able to iron out all of the details to make sure things went as smoothly as possible; and they did.
These types of photos usually require a lot of work on both sides to make sure nothing goes wrong, especially if one party isn't incredibly familiar with the area (Josh flew in from New York to surprise his now fiance). There are also quite a lot of things that can go wrong in this situation. Two of the biggest things I worry about are the person proposing without making sure the I'm in the right position, and people getting between the subject and the camera. Fortunately, neither of these happened, and things went as well as they could.
These types of photos are some of my favorite to do. They can be pretty stressful, but everyone is so happy afterwards all of the planning and work that goes into pulling them off are well worth it! So far, the person being proposed to hasn't said no when I've done these photos. I hope this never happens, but if it does, my opinion might change.
Here are some of my favorites from Thursday. If you like my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/pomykalskiphoto), then it's pretty likely you've seen at least one of these photos so far.
