Emily & James | Proposal
Athens Georgia Engagement Photographer

December 15, 2016

I was so excited when James contacted me about proposing to his girlfriend Emily!  He & Emily were planning a trip back to Athens where they met two years ago, and James decided that would be the perfect time & place to pop the question.  He decided to ask her at the bench where they had first begun to really get to know each other.  Prior to the proposal, I went to scope out this bench on UGA’s campus and found a perfect spot to hide in the bushes.  Proposals makes me more nervous than pretty much anything else I photograph, because not only do I have the pressure of potentially missing the big moment, but I also have to stay hidden!  Fortunately I’ve been practicing my ninja skills for quite some time now, because even James didn’t spot me (and he knew where I was going to be!).

Emily’s reaction to James getting down on one knee was ADORABLE.  I then made myself visible and we walked around UGA to capture their first moments as fiancés.  I LOVE how unique Emily’s engagement ring is and how she couldn’t stop smiling, despite the cold weather.  Congratulations, Emily & James!  Thanks for letting me capture these photos for you!
