Sam & Brittany. The Proposal.

They hiked into a place called The Devil’s Punch Bowl. Once they got there, Sam held Brittany close for a minute before he brought out the ring and asked if she would marry him. Brittany lost it. She said yes.

For next few minutes the newly engaged couple took it all in. Then Sam turned to Brittany and told her to look into the trees below where she saw me sitting on a branch with my camera. Brittany lost it again. It was an incredible moment to witness and I can’t explain how honored I was to be there. Much love my friends.

    Nirav, I was looking through my wedding inspiration folder, and I have hundreds of photos saved from years; I saw a set of photos named the same way, I google searched them and they were by you. So now I’ve come to catch up on your blog, your “choose your own adventure” session just about made me tear up. you are such a talented visionary, I hope some of your vision rubs off, well atleast I will leave inspired. this session is so warm, what a cute couple.

  38. Dani K

    Back looking at these again and again in tears like I was when they first sent me their gallery. So gorgeous and I’m so happy for them both!
