When Mitchell reached out to me and told me of his pans to propose in Yosemite at Glacier Point during their trip to the park, I was so excited and felt so much joy for these two! We planned every detail together and came up with the best plan to surprise Mary. I had to put my top-notch acting skills to use for a Grammy award-winning performance. The plan was simple: Mitchell and Mary would walk past me sitting on the bench, and I would approach them, asking for a few photos because they were so cute. It didn't take much acting because these two are ADORABLE!
They walked past me, and when Mitchell put his arm around Mary, I spoke up from behind them. I told them how cute they were, and we all started walking together. I told them I was a local and would love a few photos of them together. There was one place in particular I knew would be fantastic and brought them to the best view of Half Dome. When we got to the point, I had Mary turn around and gave Mitchell the cue. Mary turned around, and the perfect moment was made.
I will never forget this day. With all the tears and all the love, I knew these two were just so precious together. I can't thank my couples enough, especially Mitchell and Mary, for trusting me to capture such an incredible and memorable moment. It is always so terrific and inspiring how I have met so many wonderful people with stories of their own. Sharing these moments just warms my heart so much.
Yosemite, you have done it again, and I can wait to see what other extraordinary things and people you bring into my life! CONGRATS TO YOU MITCHELL AND MARY!
