Ryan + Patrick Lantern Festival Proposal

A few weeks ago I got a message from Ryan asking me if I was available to secretly take photos of him proposing to Patrick at the Lantern Festival. I was so ecstatic and honored that he had asked me to capture this special moment for them! 

The lantern festival is so amazing. If you have never been to one before, make it a goal to attend one. It doesn't matter how many people there are, the experience is breath taking. 

The only down fall of the lantern festival is that you have to be on high alert so you don't get nailed in the head by a low flying lantern! 

But when the thousands of lanterns go into the air, it's so magical that it was the perfect time for Ryan to propose, and he did. He caught Patrick by surprise and he said yes!! They kissed under the light of literally thousands of flying lanterns. 

Afterwards, we sat by the fire pits that they have at the Motorcross Arena and roasted marshmallows and made smores. Perfect way to end this amazing night!
