I am part of Shoot My Travel, a collective of photographers that give travelers a playfully documentation of their holiday, so there really is no need to pack the selfie stick!
Last weekend I very excitedly set off to photograph a surprise proposal with SMT. Tyler and Mallory are from America and were beginning a three-week adventure jetting around Europe, starting in London. Tyler and I exchanged a secret phone call a few days before the big day to make a plan and switch photos of each other so I knew I was following the right people and not stalking strangers!
On the day, the weather was glorious and miraculously the Tower of London was virtually empty. I waited excitedly and when I clocked Tyler and Mallory he and I exchanged a subtle wave and down on one knee he got - I have to tell you, the boy was brave! Smiling with glee Mallory said ‘YES of course’ (phew)! The poor girl was hugely hungover and Tyler had apparently been acting weird all morning (yes I am wearing trainers Tyler, and why on earth are you asking me to wash my hair Tyler?!)
We got a few gorgeous photos of them before their friends (creators of aforementioned hangover) bounded in to congratulate them! A few more photos and off they want to celebrate and I trotted off for an ice cream in the sunshine!
Lovely to meet you both and I hope the rest of your European adventure is completely amazing! Hold on to that ring Mallory, it's too gorgeous to lose!
