A little while ago Chris emailed me asking if I could photograph his Lake District proposal to Emma at The Inn On The Lake. We had planned it all for the 2nd of march but with the weather being so amazing on the 1st of March, after a few quick emails I threw everything in my car (having only just gotten home from a previous shoot in the lakes) and headed out to Ullswater.
The timing couldn't have been more perfect. Not just because of the weather but when I showed up at the Inn On The Lake I bumped into Chris in the lobby as he was heading to the car to get a bottle of bubbles and glasses. After a quick intro, I headed out towards Ullswater, one of the classically gorgeous lakes which also has the steamers on.
Emma was sat lakeside waiting for Chris as I was trying to act cool and like a nobody, I started walking around taking photos of the lake and Place Fell while also keeping an eye out for Chris's return for his surprise marriage proposal.
I saw Chris walking towards the lake as I slowly started walking over to the Jetty as Emma & Chris were walking hand in hand down the jetty's edge. I won't lie, I was expecting a "Yes" but I was very excited and nervous for Chris as he pop the question in the special moment with the incredible panoramic views that surround Ullswater and the national park.
After Emma said yes we had a great small couples shoot around the hotel grounds overlooking the lake at this fab location. Honestly though, what a gorgeous start to spring! Utterly incredible setting sun over the lake district made the perfect setting for Emma to say YES!
