“Hi, My name is Denis and I am planning to fly to Ireland from Los Angeles for a surprise proposal to my girlfriend, Kristen, in Ireland in the upcoming few weeks.

really liked your work and would love to talk to you about capturing the moment if you’re available and in the area!

Kristen is half Irish and will be on a trip with her mother exploring Ireland together for the first time. They will be in Tralee  and am planning to surprise her during the day and am still trying to figure out a location.If you’re available, maybe you have ideas :)”

Right, when you receive this kind of email you think WOW! Now that is so romantic! Secret proposal in Ireland! (why wasn’t my hubby that creative:))) ?!

So, shortly after we set a Skype chat with Denis to discuss all the secret proposal ideas. He already have researched some beautiful locations but his decision was made towards Killarney National Park.  No surprise as it is so beautiful and picturesque! Loaded with blooming flora, Killarney park has a sense of being like a magic fairy tale. You’d easily find yourself peaking under rocks and checking for fairy doors to see if there really is any little creatures.

We narrowed the choice down even further , because the location had to be easy to find as Denis directed Kristen’s mum over the phone! Not to mention that it needed to seem as a regular expedition, so Denis had to find a place relatively touristy. Obviously Kristen had no idea that Denis is flying after her to Ireland, so it was a HUGE surprise for her.He was nervous… He was really nervous! Having this amazing ring in his pocket and worrying if she will say YES!

So we picked up the most beautiful spot under the blooming Sakuras. I know right!!

So we waited… and waited… till Denis got a message that they are in the park. Time had stopped, it really did, and from afar we saw them walking… Oh my! It was intense and in the same time so romantic…

I was hidden in the bushes 🙂 , so Kristen couldn’t see me at all. That moment when their sight first met was truly magical. You could read the confusion and happiness in the same time. You could notice tears in their eyes and those were tears of happiness…

Moments like this, deserve to be preserved for years to come. Im thrilled that Denis thought about it and asked me to capture this very special moment of their Irish adventure. They will cherish these memories for years to come and the images will help them walk down the memory lane …

Sure, an image can speak a thousand words. .. Enjoy!
