Brennen planned this surprise proposal weeks in advance and had called me to ask me to capture that moment just before Christmas 2018.
On the evening of the proposal Brennen had taken Alaina to see a Christmas show at the Raising Cane's River Center in Baton Rouge and then they went for a walk along the river. This is where I was stood, pretending to be a photographer taking photos of the sun setting over the Mississippi river.
The sky was perfect as Brennen got down on one knee and pooped the question with a brilliant teardrop shaped engagement ring which sparkled brighter than the sunset, as I captured everything paparazzi style from a distance.
Alaina of course Alaina said "yes" and she could not stop smiling the whole night after he had asked her to spend the rest of their lives together. We photographed a little engagement shoot after the proposal and as you can see from this photo, the two of them have uncontrollable smiles on their faces.
It was an amazing evening and to be able to capture the pure emotion and excitement of a proposal is something I will never take for granted.
