SHE SAID YES!! This is one of my favorite sessions at the Boston Public Library. Ben and Marissa are the cutest couple and I was so excited to capture this special, exciting moment! When I received Ben's inquiry I was beyond excited to possibly capture my first surprise marriage proposal. That same day we set up a time to talk on the phone so I could get all the details. I loved hearing the excitement in Ben's voice. Listening to him gushing over Marissa, was so sweet! As we chatted, my little photographer heart almost exploded with excitement when he mentioned he wanted to propose at the Boston Public Library.


We hatched a plan and it worked! On the day of the proposal I arrived to the library a little early and waited for them to arrive. My husband was with me and I had him stand in the middle of the very busy and popular spot where Ben would be proposing to block other people from standing there. After patiently waiting for Ben's text, he finally let me know they were walking in. I hid in the door way of the Bates Hall waiting for them to arrive. As soon as Ben and Marissa perfectly centered themselves, Ben held Marissa by the hand and got down on one knee and proposed! Their sweet smiles and genuine excitement were too freaking cute. After Ben proposed we took a few pictures in the library before heading across the way to the Copley Hotel to take some more pictures before they went off to meet up with loved ones to celebrate.


This surprise proposal was a dream come true for me to capture! I was so grateful to be there and capture an important part of their super sweet love story! Congrats again Ben and Marissa, I am so excited and happy for both of you!
