Back in December I was asked to photograph my friend and fellow photographer's proposal to his girlfriend. He wasn't sure quite when he was going to do it, but knew he wanted it documented. I was so excited when Chris asked me and was of course happy to do it. (It's so exciting knowing someone is going to be proposed to weeks before they do, such a fun little secret to have!) So a couple weeks ago on a Tuesday night I drove down to Sodo to photograph a co-ed soccer game.
Chris and Sarah play in the same league on different teams, and on this particular Tuesday their teams were playing each other. Chris had everything planned. A well orchestrated (and bogus) foul sent Sarah to the line for a penalty kick which Chris, being goalie, was to defend. As Sarah was momentarily distracted by a teammate, Chris ran up to the ball, got down on one knee, and pulled out the ring just as Sarah turned back to face him. It was perfect. Below is what followed...
Oh, and for those of you wondering, she scored her penalty kick. :)
