TJ approached me with a very specific vision for his proposal, intimate, understated, romantic. He wanted one photographer, no video crew, no bells and whistles, just one person there to capture the moment and I am so thankful that he chose me. It was so refreshing, exciting, and completely beautiful to witness their proposal.
On the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, between Gloucester and Fairfield street there is a bench. And under this bench there is a plaque. And on this plaque is a beautiful quote:
This was where TJ stopped to get a “rock out of his shoe”. And then this happened:
On the busy streets of Boston, time seemed to stop for a moment. It was truly beautiful.
TJ had been holding onto the ring for quite some time, wanting to wait until he was able to gather both of their families in one city. His parents travel frequently and her family is from Ireland.
After the big moment, they returned to his family home in the Back Bay where both families greeted them.
Then we stepped up onto the roof for a few amazing skyline shots.
Gorgeous couple. Beautiful proposal.
