Late on Thursday evening I got this call and I picked up the phone even though it was way past my “business hours”. It was the excited mother of a young man who planned a surprise proposal for his girl friend at Castle Schönburg in Oberwesel in the Middle Rhine valley. She asked me if I was available the next day. Ummm I said, I´m afraid I´ve got a wedding tomorrow. Oh no, she said, we really want you, please make sure you can make it.
Long talk cut short, they moved their time of the proposal so I was able to drive out there after the wedding to in time hide in the garden of the Castle to secretly shoot the proposal in candid shots, followed by a sweet couple session around the castle. It was amazing and quite emotional, especially for the not knowing girl. Needless to say I loved it and so did the couple and their both families from Chicago and Seattle.
