Proposal Session at Airlie Gardens, Wilmington, NC
I had the privilege to photograph my couples at one of the most sought out locations in Wilmington, NC. Airlie Gardens has several photogenic locations, such as the Pergola, Spring Garden, Butterfly House, Centennial Plaza, Bottle Chapel, Airlie Oak, Model House, Bradley Creek Pier, Seasonal, Garden, and several Nature trails in the area. On a Tuesday, the parking is filled with customers coming in and out of the park. Which means even on a Tuesday, the foot traffic may be busy depending on the season.
Matt called me to tell me that he's going to propose to his high school gf, Anna. We both had to be super discreet, keeping things on the down low as he didn't want to ruin the surprise. After several phone calls, we decided on the location at the Pergola. Airlie Gardens does require for the couple to purchase a permit for the photographer to photograph them at the location at $200 for 2 hours. I waited about 15 minutes before hand at the area, I looked around before positioning myself. I didn't need to hide as there were a few other people there. I don't think Anna suspected anything as I didn't make eye contact. But as soon as they arrived, Matt proposed and this happened.
