Dara had messaged me on Instagram after I’d posted about traveling to France. Our travel dates lined up, and she was hoping to set up a session one early morning around the Eiffel Tower with her boyfriend, Joshua. Little did Dara know, Joshua had messaged me separately right after her, saying he was hoping to propose during the photoshoot, as it was his plan to propose during their family vacation, anyway! I was so excited and beyond happy to photograph such an important moment for them. We met up around 6am, before the place was swamped with tourists, and spent the morning shooting until Joshua got down on one knee and gave Dara the biggest surprise ever. They had brought their family to the shoot under the guise of going to breakfast afterwards, so everyone was there to celebrate with them as soon as he popped the question.
