About a month or so ago my friend called me to see if I was available the following day to do engagement photos at Citizen's Bank Park. Her friend was planning a surprise proposal at the Phillies' stadium and they needed a photographer to document the whole thing. Well, I'm glad I picked up the phone because it really was an exciting experience to see two people get engaged on the Phillies' field. From the nerves of coordinating everything — Andrew (the boyfriend) had family flown in from California, getting Lindsay to believe that she was really at the stadium to be interviewed for a newspaper story, getting the jumbotron turned on — paled in comparison to her priceless reaction when she realized what was going on.
The story that was pieced together over the hour or so we were there was that Lindsay teased Andrew frequently about a proposal. Not in a bad way, just for fun. It was obvious that she had no idea a real proposal was actually coming, and absolutely no idea that there was going to be such a unique proposal in such an unexpected fashion.
Andrew and Lindsay, I'm really happy that I was one of the few people that was able to share in such a monumental occasion in your lives. I wish you all the best!
