A Real Engagement . . . as it happened - it's a surprise proposal

I have a super sweet way to start the week off - it's a surprise proposal caught on film from Nathan of Dreamtime Images. The groom-to-be contacted Nathan about photographing his proposal to his now fiance and the beautiful Colorado scenery is the perfect backdrop for their romantic day.

First David took Claire's camera to snap a few photos {Claire is a children’s photographer in Dallas}. Then David suprised Claire with a present -  a Brownie Bullet camera. He had actually hollowed out the inside and made a small ring box. He then positioned the ring so the diamond would shine through a little red window on the back. Isn't this clever?

After the box was opened, David handed the camera to Claire to have her take a picture. He hoped she'd see the diamond - but that plan didn't work. Claire handed the camera back and David realized it didn't work. He tried to take a picture and then just opened the camera and got down on one knee . . . awwww, so sweet!!!
