This shoot started as me just wanting to photograph a cool couple in a cool location. I had these awesome Redwoods in mind, but no couple! So, I posted on Facebook that I was looking for a couple to shoot, and Macarah responded that she and her boyfriend Adam would love to get some photos of them two. Score! Couple: Acquired. Fast forward to the night before our shoot when Adam messaged me saying he was going to PROPOSE! I think I was more excited than he was. About 3/4 of the way through, nestled between the trees in the most gorgeous light, Adam got down on one knee and popped the question. Macarah bawled like a baby, and it was beautiful.
These two are adorable. Adam is from Idaho, and Macarah from Southern California. They met on Tumblr – you know, the site for angsty teenagers and the dankest of memes. They both listened to the same small indie band, and while following up on the bands whereabouts, Macarah found some photos that Adam had shot at one of their shows. They started talking, first about the music they both enjoyed and then about anything and everything. Both being into photo and video, they hit it of pretty quick. They dated long distance for a while, until Adam moved down to Southern California! The rest is history.
