Planning the Moment:

A snowy proposal calls for careful planning. Consider a car adventure with short 10-15 minute excursions to different locations on the peninsula. Plan the moment when the snowfall is at its most enchanting or during the soft glow of twilight. Discuss with your photographer (or me!) about capturing the proposal discreetly to freeze that magical moment in time.
