Keri + Andrew
I get this semi-cryptic email from Keri asking me to do an engagement shoot and her time is limited to certain days etc. I start to wonder if this is going to result in a scam where i need to get a money order and bring it to a bank…
Turns out that they are both Marines and that she works as an ejection seat technician and only has a weekend to do the shoot. Wow, ejection seat tech? Yes, ejection seat tech. Anyone who knows me knows that i have a thing for military aviation. So i was intrigued.
No more that 2 days later, i start getting emails from this guy (Thus far i had only been dealing with Keri, so i had no idea who Andrew was.), and he says he’s going to propose to her and wanted to know my suggestion on working it into the session. Wow ok, now we are talkin’…
Of course there were heavy downpours the day of, but that didn’t deter us. I have a host of locations for just this sort of contingency. So we went around the city a bit, we had a code phrase (paraphrasing): ‘Andrew, i think you have something to show me…’ just before saying our phrase, i was telling them to pose, so Keri is looking at me and not even paying attention to the fact that Andrew has a ring in his hand and that he is now on his knee…
She looks away from me and looks back at Andrew… silence. Motionless. I could almost hear the gears turning in her head and she finally realized what was going on.
