Adam’s Surprise Proposal to Jenny at the Castle Hill Lighthouse Adam’s Surprise Proposal to Jenny at the Castle Hill Lighthouse Pre-Proposal Planning: My proposal photoshoot packages include a Zoom video consultation, a collaborative session where Adam and I crafted the perfect surprise. Adam had his heart set on a particular view of the picturesque Castle Hill Lighthouse, but we needed to consider the low winter sun, a potential obstacle for ideal lighting. During the call, I showcased multiple drone videos and photos; we would use Adam's plan A if it were overcast and my suggested Plan B should the weather be sunny. Adam’s route to the Plan A spot. We were ready, just hoping for fair weather. December 15th arrived bright and sunny (not ideal, but workable). Adam, anticipating traffic, pushed the proposal to a later time. I kept track of his location via GPS and shared my location. Upon arrival, the harsh sunlight confirmed my concern about the Plan A spot: it was unusable. I quickly texted Adam, switching to Plan B, which he readily agreed to. Action on the Rocks: Moving to the rocks, I watched Adam and Jenny arrive at the Inn – they were running late. Capturing a surprise proposal involves three parties, one who doesn't know that there is a time-critical schedule, in this case, Jenny. I received a text from Adam informing me that Jenny was going to make a coffee. Not only was it chilly on the rocks, but we were up against sunset. Jenne needed a gentle nudge away from the complimentary wine and coffee maker! Time was of the essence, and the breathtaking bay views from their "Grace Kelly hideaway" room weren't helping. Adam discreetly prompted Jenny along. I received a text that they were moving and watched the moving dots on the GPS app. My location on the rocks Adam’s GPS location Suddenly, Murphy's Law struck. Just as Adam and Jenny neared the Plan B spot, a group with a dog occupied it. Taking charge, I sprinted over and politely explained the situation, and thankfully, they moved. Back at my post, moments later, the couple finally descended the lighthouse stairs. The Moment of Joy: As Adam knelt, I captured the panorama with a wide-angle lens, then quickly switched to a telephoto zoom for close-ups. The distance between us prevented conversation, but after Jenny's excited "yes" and after she had put the ring on her finger, they turned to face me with a triumphant wave. #100 Witnessing such joy never gets old, even with this proposal, my 100th– it's the essence of why I do what I do!
