Kreshan + Chandni | Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden proposal

It was fun going into stealth mode for this one. Kreshan reached out about photographing a surprise proposal to then-girlfriend Chandni (spoiler-alert, she said yes) out at the beautiful Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont. I was excited, but I knew it would be a challenge for a tall, bearded photographer with a 300mm lens to remain inconspicuous long enough for the two to enter the gardens and make their way to the engagement spot. I met up with Kreshan about a week beforehand to go over the game plan and fortunately found several areas to wait for their approach. He texted when they were on the property, I waited for them to enter the special garden where DSBG staff had laid out a path of rose petals and documented this special moment in their life!

After they popped some champaign, we spent some time making engagement photos around the gardens. Daniel Stowe is gorgeous any time of the year, but this was shortly before Christmas and the light displays were up for their annual Holidays at the Garden.
