What an exciting moment in two peoples lives this was!! When Mohamed contacted me, I was thrilled that my calendar was open because this is something I've always thought would be super cool to photograph. And then it was time to actually photograph it ... for real.... and I think I was more nervous than anyone else. What if she saw me hiding behind the wood pile? While I was looking for the best spot to hide, I got stung by a bee! What if I got stung by another one? I would be devastated if I ruined this moment for them. Luckily, my camera has a super silent mode, there weren't any more bees and Katie had no idea I was there.
I love how Mohamed had this all planned out. She arrived exactly on time, was blindfolded (with a t-shirt) and carefully taken down the back stairs to the dock where Mohamed and a couple of his friends had decorated the gazebo. There were photos of Mohamed and Katie, flower petals, candles, flower garland and mini-lights. How romantic!!
Mohamed's true personality came out when he tricked her with a ring-pop ring before the real one came out. Despite that, Katie still said YES!!
They are such a sweet couple. I hope this isn't the last we see of them. Congratulations on your engagement Mohamed and Katie!
