It was a surprise. Like, total surprise. Darren meticulously wrapped, duct taped, re-wrapped, tied, and wrapped her present, one last time, just for good measure. Robyn said her first thought was “Oh, some jewelery. Good job, Darren.” When she figured out what it was, she started crying. And kept crying. Sobbing, almost. Poor Darren. He told her if she didn’t like it that he’d bring it back- get her a new one. At that Robyn was able to compose herself and let it settle in that she was engaged. Getting married. To Darren. She told me that she felt like the luckiest girl in the world. That it was the best day of her life. I said “Really? Like, positive that it was THE BEST day of your life?” She looked down at her left hand, smiled at me as she looked up, and said “yeah” and nodded as she turned to watch Darren walk out of the tack room near the back of the barn.
I love those moments. I love that my job is to capture those moments and to be with those people who make those moments into pictures that should be taken. I really love my clients, too
