Courtney & Tony get engaged! 7/23/11

 
This shoot was awesome! I got a phone call from Tony (above) about a week prior asking if there was any way we might be able to pull off an idea he had and if I was interested. Once I got the details,  I could not wait to see his amazing day come together. And did it ever.
Meet Courtney, pictured above. It's her birthday and she's feeling fine and looking fabulous, but she has no idea that she's being photographed by the stalker in another chair on the lawn (me), nor does she have any idea that in about 5 minutes, her boyfriend Tony is about to propose to her... 
Success! Tony outed me once the deed was done...
But the surprises continued...
A few minutes later, a boat sailed by with a small crowd singing Happy Birthday and blowing air horns for all of Castle Hill. When Courtney gets a closer look, it's her family and friends who've surprised her with a visit to Newport to celebrate her 30th birthday!

Down to the docks we go to wait for the boat...
To think these two just rolled right into an impromptu photo shoot and look this relaxed and amazing just blows my mind. 
 No one on the boat had any idea that these two just got engaged...
but when they found out, I am pretty sure all of Newport heard! Check out the clearance on this girl's jump -- excellent!
And the last surprise (with Tony winning any and every award for creativity, secrecy, and sweetness), were sweatshirts he had made to mark the occasion for the sunset sail. What an amazing, unforgettable evening. Happy Birthday and a VERY BIG congratulations to Courtney and Tony!
