Fairmont Hotel Marriage Proposal Photos - James and Joyce
November 18, 2016
James held his marriage proposal to Joyce at Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. James' father works at the Fairmont Hotel, so he was able to have special access to the garden, providing a scenic and isolated setting for his marriage proposal. Joyce was the perfect emotive subject, giving some unfiltered and raw emotions, providing me one of the most memorable reactions I've ever witnessed it was funny photographing her response to noticing me documenting her faces, which provided a nice embarrassed smile. We were lucky to have a windless afternoon with the garden shaded for even and clean lighting falling on their faces. Unlike most proposal gigs, this was a short and sweet session with James only needing me for a few minutes to simply capture the proposal alone. Within moments of proposing, James' parents appeared with flowers in hand to help celebrate and congratulate the new couple. This was my signal to head out and let the new couple catch up. The Fairmont Hotel is always a popular choice for proposals because of its beautiful scenery in the lobby as well as serene garden outside. Not everyone has special hookups to this venue but when you do it is best to take advantage of it.
