When I got an inquiry from Jovahn about a surprise engagement, I think I might have been more excited that even he was. I hired a photographer when I proposed to Alisha and it was one of the most amazing experiences to see her face when she realized the surprise afterward. In fact, those photos are among my most treasured things to look at on the wall each morning.
Although we’ve been in La Crosse for 7 years, we only really discovered Riverside Park and the International Gardens this year. It’s such an enchanting place to shoot that we’ve gone back many times. In particular, I love the walking bridge over the river and the fact that the light is always so beautiful.
Photography is generally best at sunrise and sunset, but there is so much natural shade that it’s incredibly easy to take magical photos around the bridge and gardens. It was an incredible honor to be part of their moment and I’m tremendously excited for them.
