I was given the most wonderful opportunity a few weeks ago when, as I was working my regular job as PR photographer at Bluffton University's homecoming festivities, my friend Lauren told me that our mutual friend Tamara's boyfriend was going to propose to her! Tamara was one of two homecoming queens last year, so she was back at Salzman Stadium to crown this year's queen and was watching the game with Yousif (her boyfriend), Lauren, and others. Lauren and Yousif, of course, wanted pictures of the big event, so after the crowning I walked ahead of her as J Denny and Jenny Beaver (Bluffton's mascots) led her back to her seat, where Yousif was waiting. She was a bit confused by their guidance - I heard her saying "I have no idea what they're doing!"
I think I'll let my photos tell the rest of the story.
Of course, she said yes. :)
I'll be taking their engagement photos soon, so keep an eye out for those!
