Apple Fest in Bayfield, WI is, of course, one of my favorite events.  Last year I was able to capture a proposal at the beginning of the parade, and this year I was able to capture one on the beautiful shore of Lake Superior.

Blake contacted me a few weeks ago with the idea to surprise his girlfriend Emily with a proposal on the waterfront during Apple Fest.  Through a lot of secret texts and subterfuge these past few weeks, he pulled it off – and I got to capture it.

I hung out at the Trek & Trail Beach in Bayfield waiting for them to arrive. He had sent a photo of the two of them earlier in the day so I’d know what they were wearing. As I saw them walk up to the beach – I quickly pretended to take photos of the scenery.  I honestly was trying not to giggle audibly from excitement.

Blake got down on one knee and Emily said yes!  (I’m pretty sure my favorite photo is of her realizing I was taking the photos… I guess I was sufficiently sneaky while he asked 😉 )

Bayfield Apple Fest Proposal! Blake planned this surprise for weeks, and I got to capture it :)

After that, I wandered around Apple Fest and took some photos of the all the fun people (and dogs).  You can see them all here – but here are a few of my favorites:

    Hannah,
    The covert proposal photos are precious. Best of all, they epitomize the wonderful sense of community I see in your entire Bayfield Applefest album. What a wonderful place to live!

    Onward to winter,
    Susan
