Marriage Proposal at the DIA

When Greg emailed me, he was looking to create a marriage proposal at the DIA.

“Perfect!” I replied. “I actually just shot one there last week and can walk you through your options.”

With that, we got to work.  Ideas were discussed, plans were made, and the day finally came.  Greg brought Lindsey to the DIA, where I was already in position.  I had a moment of fear as I walked into the DIA: while waiting in the lobby, I noticed a group of women wearing athletic clothing and holding yoga mats.  “Noooo” I hesitantly thought to myself.  As I followed them through the museum, we were both heading in the same general direction.  I walked up the stairs to see nearly 100 participants laying out their mats, getting ready for a group yoga session hosted by Motor Om Yoga.  Serene music was playing and filling the space.  Luckily, they occupied a nearby room, leaving the Diego Rivera room open for Greg’s marriage proposal at the DIA.  (Side note: the wonderful people at Motor Om Yoga reached out to Greg and Lindsey after the proposal to congratulate them!  How cool and nice of them?!)

After a quick text to Greg letting him know I was in position, he arrived with Lindsey to an empty room, ready to propose.

Lindsey’s reaction was so pure and genuine.  It was a beautiful moment that was perfect to capture.

I love the moment when the person getting proposed to spots me.  This too always leads to a genuine reaction, commonly followed by a “Come on!” or “Are you serious?!”  as they realize there is more to the moment than just the proposal.  Greg did a fantastic job of making the moment special and memorable.

There is always a single moment in a proposal when the couples’ worlds come together and it shows on their faces.  To me, this was that moment. Lindsey’s expression of joy and gratitude is everything.

After the marriage proposal at the DIA, we spent some time photographing Greg and Lindsey in the museum and around town.
