You could say Matt is full of surprises. He told his girlfriend Lauren he was taking her on a surprise weekend getaway and that she should pack a bag and prepare for a long drive. On Friday morning he drove her to the Airport (they live in Georgia) and surprised her with a flight to Phoenix and a trip to the Grand Canyon. Lauren has always wanted to see the Canyon so she was obviously excited for the journey! After renting a car, they drove straight to Grand Canyon National Park and headed to Yavapai Point. After walking to the rim of the Canyon, Matt dropped to one knee and proposed to Lauren. And I was privileged to be there to document the moment! Matt contacted me months ago to arrange for me to photograph his proposal. Photographing engagements is pretty amazing and I feel lucky to be able to do so on a fairly regular basis. Lauren was overcome with emotion, Matt was overcome with emotion and, quite frankly, I was overcome with emotion. And, she said yes! We dodged rain for the rest of the evening and had a great time making some portraits, watching rain clouds roll past and catching a bit of a sunset before dark. Enjoy!
