Caleb’s Proposal

Caleb’s Proposal

duluth minnesota pier wedding engagement photographer

Saturday was a really beautiful day for a surprise proposal in Canal Park.

Caleb had contacted me a few days before.  He planned to ask Rachel to marry him when they were in Duluth for a weekend of pre-Christmas shopping and mini get-a-way.  Rachel loves Duluth, MN and Caleb knew it would be his perfect chance to pop the question.  If you were in town enjoying Canal Park on Saturday, I was the lone photographer trying to look inconspicuously like a tourist with my (rather large) zoom lens attached to my camera and tag-a-long camera bag.  I made some new friends- an adorable couple and a family who allowed me to tag along with them so I could ‘blend in’ *ahem ahem* and hopefully not be noticed.  If you’re reading this- thanks a million!! (again!)

Caleb was a bit nervous that Rachel was onto his plan…

Rachel was surprised when, as they were just looking out at the lake at some birds, Caleb burst into tears.  Not knowing what to think- she stood shocked for a moment.  (Later, Rachel and I learned that Caleb was so nervous all weekend that he’d concealed his stress & tears in private- sneaking away so Rachel wouldn’t ask what was going on.)

Finally the moment arrived!

Of course, Rachel said ‘YES’!!!!  (Hooray!)

She had to actually look at the ring now.  And take off her mittens- it was pretty chilly.

Now Caleb could finally tell her that they weren’t alone!

Rachel was definitely surprised, and had no idea that he had planned anything.

We took advantage of the gorgeous day and grabbed a few more photos before they were off.
