It was an honor to photograph Daniel’s proposal to Andrea at the Castle Hill Lighthouse two weekends ago. Daniel contacted me shortly before his proposal to see if I was available. He wanted to have that memory of the both him and Andrea together, just enjoying the moment. Maybe it was just meant to be because the funny thing was that I was already scheduled to be at the Castle Hill Inn for family portraits earlier that day. So the timing was perfect and we made it happen.
After enjoying a beautiful dinner on the Lawn at Castle Hill Inn, Daniel and Andrea walked out to the lighthouse to enjoy the sunset. They found a heart made of sticks and flowers waiting for them by the lighthouse. Andrea didn’t know it then, but that was our secret signal revealing the location where he should propose!
I think this added to the element of surprise because when he got down on one knee in front of the Lighthouse for the proposal, Andrea thought he was joking! But it was no joke – Daniel’s proposal was for real and she said yes! The moments that followed were full of happy tears and many exclamations of “I can’t believe this!!!!” It was a beautiful, beautiful moment.
