brad + kelly | engaged | seattle and portland wedding photographer

When Brad first contacted me about photographing his surprise proposal to Kelly at the BIMA, it is needless to say I was pretty stoked. Not only is a proposal just delightful enough to shake up my weekly routine, Brad is just about the sweetest, kindest guy you'll ever meet. Plus, the way he looks at his girl? Oh man.

We met up a couple days before the proposal at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art to lay out our sneaky plan of attack. The museum staff was in on it, I was strategically placed (doing my best impression of a camera-wielding art student), and the goregeous, custom made ring was hanging carefully on a piece created by local artist Steve Parmelee (who just happened to be there, witnessing the whole thing).

The couple arrived, the question was popped, magic happened. A bunch of funny stuff happened in between, but those are stories for another day. For now, we'll let the photos show off.
