Will & Mallary’s On-Stage Proposal

Few things fire me up like photographing a proposal. I can’t help but return in my mind to that place where Aaron proposed to me. I love tapping into that moment when I’m photographing a proposal–I can remember the intense joy I felt, all the way down to my toes–and it gets me GIDDY for the couple in front of me.

Photographing a proposal always comes with a rush of emotions, for me, but the rush of Will and Mallary’s proposal was multiplied exponentially–BECAUSE WE WERE IN FRONT OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. Will proposed to Mallary on stage at the Foster The People concert in Austin last Tuesday. It was an absolute joy to be involved, and I’ll never forget nervously/excitedly weaving through the band members on stage to get the best angle. I love the images below, and the Johnny Cash + June Carter feel to them.

My super talented husband shot their proposal on video, and you can view it here.



Will and Mallary–Thank you for inviting Aaron and I to document this incredible moment. I am so happy for you–giddy for you is more like it. :) Enjoy this sweet time, and just know, it only gets better. :) Xoxo, Caroline
