A few weeks back I ventured to the San Francisco Bay area and had a great time shooting. After shooting the fogged in Golden Gate Bridge, I ended up at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. While walking around the beautiful grounds, there was a wedding photographer shooting a couple across the water . Thinking it would make an interesting shot of the shooter shooting, I set up my tripod. What happened next was purely romantic, as I found out later when I spoke to the happy couple.
It turns out that the future groom to be told his soon-to-be fiance that he was taking her out to breakfast and to dress up a bit. He had come with the photographer the day before and set up the surprise shoot with the surprise proposal. When I got there he was proposing on bended knee. How totally romantic is that? When I spoke to her later, she said she was totally surprised and worried she had not fixed her hair better because she thought she was only going to breakfast.
