This job was honestly in my top three working highlights for the year.
When Alex asked me to photograph his proposal to his now-fiance Mel, he had been planning this event for a long time.
It started 6 months earlier when he purchased a run-down vintage row boat and proceeded to refurbish it in the kitchen of their home.
During that time, he had friends video ‘a day with Alex and Mel’ under the guise of it being for a tourism tv show.
Alex also registered the domain name melsaidyes.com and built a website to host said video.
Yes, I looked like a creepy weirdo in the bushes.
Yes, Mel was concerned and mentioned the weirdo in the bushes taking photos of them to Alex while out on the boat.
But, I was forgiven (see the third last photo) when Alex finally explained the months of planning that were all for her (and that the creep in the bushes was a hired creep in the bushes).
