My "little" brother Josh texted me a couple weeks ago that he was planning to propose to his girlfriend Bethany. He lives in Columbus and made plans to ask her at sunset on the Rich Street Bridge.
Josh also arranged for a drone to capture the proposal & invited a small crowd of family + friends to celebrate afterwards together. After a Chemistry lecture, my sons and I headed to Columbus to check out the area around Scioto Mile. The weather had cooled a bit and it was a beautiful day to be outside. We joined our family to "wait for the signal" with Bethany's friend Becky. "Waiting for the signal" meant crouching behind a pillar while we tracked my brother on Becky's iPhone. We waited for Josh & Bethany to walk toward the deer. Yes, DEER. I was confused by these instructions, until I saw the deer he was referencing:
I laughed when I went through the images and saw my older brother driving by. It happened so fast I didn't know I had a picture until I processed the images later.
Josh wrapped his arm around Bethany (the signal) and the drone moved in.
She said yes!
I didn't bring light stands so I had my mom & my Damian hold up my flashes when I needed them.
My mom snapped this one of my brother Josh & I. You can see my little shadow, my son Damian, behind me. :)
Being there to witness the proposal was great because we could all meet for dinner to continue sharing stories & celebrating. We are really excited to welcome Bethany into our family!
Here is the video from the drone footage by Ashton Onesko from Prestige Pro Photo- this is such a neat perspective!
