One year ago this past weekend I was huddled at the base of an evergreen tree, layer upon layers covering every inch of skin I sat and waited. I’m pretty sure I know how hunters feel up in their tree stands. waiting. day dreaming, waiting. How boring hunting must be. And then we got word that she was nearly there, and things got exciting. I think I could compare the pressure to this moment to the way I feel just before the officiant pronounces, “kiss the bride” but this was so different. Maybe it was because I couldn’t feel my fingers and maybe it was because Alicia and Isaac’s lives were about to change so big in just a few moments. It was so amazing. I was huddled in this tree to do one form of shooting but I wasn’t shooting a deer or moose. I was shooting Isaac propose to his then girlfriend Alicia and the long prepared plan was about to come to life.
I get to be a part of many awesome moments of peoples lives but this was for sure right up there in terms of excitement and happiness! If you are planning to propose to your girlfriend and you want it documented, get in touch with us! I am fully equipped with hunting hats, gloves and hot pockets.
Isaac of Isaac Varty Films, with some help from his friends and family put together a pretty awesome plan. He had a complete light set up with a generator to play music. He had the cutest path set for Alicia to walk up to with photos and memories set on stumps and of course it all ended with fireworks. It was really fun to see it all come together. Isaac also had a film crew there to capture it, you can see it and the interview with Alicia here.
5 mins before the limo showed, Isaac said, “OK guys, I just need a minute to figure out what to say!” we all laughed. With this amazing elaborate plan, he still hadn’t figured out that part yet–I’m pretty sure it started with “will you….” the sign said the rest.
And then on the morning of the wedding, a gift was delivered and the whole story came about.
