Default Corina and Jeff, Proposal

I had the chance to photograph a proposal and it was the best photo shoot I had ever done. My best friend Corina had no clue and her now fiance Jeff had called me prior and asked if I'd be interested in during just a regular shoot for a date they were having. Two days before the date he called and said, "Oh by the way, I'm proposing on the last picture."... I was so glad to be a part of it. Pure joy out of these guys. What photographer could ask for more?
