When Shivam contacted me to take pictures of a surprise proposal, I was ecstatic! He wanted to propose to his girlfriend of four years in the most romantic city... Saint Augustine, Florida... During the Night of Lights! What more I can say?
I figured we could use the Castillo De San Marco as a background, what better icon to represent St Augustine?! Since it was on a Saturday, the crowd couldn't have been avoided, but this made for a special story. People in the background realized Shivam proposed and when she said yes, they cheered and applauded. This emotional occasion was celebrated by the couple in the background with a display of affection.
We wanted to take advantage of the sunset colors as well as capturing the allure of the lights. Mission accomplished!
This session couldn't have been more perfect; beautiful couple, great location, and nice weather! And what better way to end a session with a picture of the Castillo de San Marco volunteers and members of the St Augustine Garrison in full costume!! Epic!!
