This shoot was simply amazing! I’ve never been part of someone else’s proposal before. It was a great experience and one I won’t soon forget.
To give you a bit of the back ground details, I’ve known Dave for quite a while, we met in 1994 I think. We started out as unpaid interns for a now defunct Nashville radio station called Thunder 94, and eventually went on to attended the same college. Dave had a radio show on our college station, I don’t recall the name of the show, but I do remember that he went by the name Naked Dave. So time goes on and we fell out of touch which is often the case in college.
Now fast forward 10 years when I’m at lunch with a friend who mentions her friend Naked Dave. I now think to myself, how many Naked Dave’s could there really be? What are the odds? To wrap things up, we all get lunch, have a laugh about how I found him and that’s that.
So you can maybe imagine how excited I was when Dave told me that he not only wanted me to photograph him and his soon to be fiancé, but he wanted me to photograph the proposal! I was excited, and honored to say the very least. I met up with Dave and the unsuspecting Jessica on July 30th for our shoot. It was a typically hot, but a beautiful, Nashville afternoon.
Thanks for looking!
