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 😉 )
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:This post may contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I’ll receive a portion of the purchase price.
