Proposal at the Rose Garden

Rose Garden Wedding

A proposal at the Rose Garden – a perfect place for weddings

After a three wedding weekend this labor day weekend in Portland, I got a call Monday asking me if I could photograph a surprise proposal at the Rose Garden in Portland in an hour – I said yes, of course! Rose Garden is a beautiful spot for weddings and portraits, but this was a first for me to photograph a proposal at International Rose Test Garden. I rushed there immediately – I didn’t know who I was photographing. Anthony texted me a picture of the two of them together, and I picked a spot with good lighting and texted him back to have him go there. Right when he got on his knees, a couple with a stroller cut in front of me – but they quickly realized what was happening. I got some beautiful pictures of the proposal (she said yes 🙂 ).
