Isaiah's Game-Day Proposal
There are life-changing moments in time when what’s truly important shines brighter than everything else. Such moments demand our attention as distractions quickly fade away. These moments call to our soul, reminding us of our true essence: love.
Moments like these are rare gifts to cherish. It’s as though our souls welcome these moments with open arms, allowing us to get our fill of joy and treasure before the realities and responsibilities of life demand our attention once more.
When my sister-in-law called me to share that her brother, Isaiah, would be proposing soon and really wanted to document it, I volunteered to capture it. I had no idea how truly magical this moment would be since I had never photographed a proposal before. It was not until I was sitting at my computer looking through all of these images, my attention undivided, that I realized how incredibly mesmerizing the moment was.
I studied the faces of every person in every frame. I saw the moment through each of their eyes. I saw the wonder, excitement, joy, and happiness overflowing from each of their hearts. Photography is the medium by which we can preserve a moment in time forever. Preserving Isaiah’s proposal to Haley was both a privilege and an honor.
