Thomas + Danielle | A Proposal in Durham, North Carolina

Last week – while in North Carolina to shoot a wedding (much more on that very soon) – my handsome She Takes Pictures He Makes Films sidekick Alastair and I were having a sunset drink atop the Durham Hotel, when a man approached us:

‘Hey guys, sorry to bother you, but my buddy’s about to arrive with his girl… he’s proposing to her tonight, and was hoping to use this spot – would you guys mind moving to a different table for him?’

‘Of course! How exciting…

…does he have someone to shoot it?!’

Minutes later, we were honoured (and lucky!) to have the chance to document the moment Thomas and Danielle put a ring on it. What a moment it was.

To Thomas + Danielle: Massive congratulations, you two! We’re stoked to have been there to capture it all x

See bottom of the post for a little film by Alastair, featuring a soundtrack by Analog Colours.
