Proposal at Rosamond Gifford Zoo

Simon and Sarah are the one of the cutest couples I have ever met. I got to know Simon about a week before the proposal. He meticulously planned the day and chose the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, NY because that is where they had their first date.

It was a chilly day – about 40 degrees and it had been raining all morning. Just before 1:00pm when they were scheduled to arrive, the clouds parted slightly and the rain stopped…it was so meant to be. I saw them coming from a distance and discretely pretended to be photographing the elephants as they chomped on some hay that was laid out for them.

Simon got down on one knee and Sarah’s face went from shock & disbelief to tears of happiness. It was such a genuine reaction and I was so excited to be a part of it!

Thanks for reading!
