Something is so catchy about that phrase... Glitz at the Ritz oh boy was there plenty of glitz at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Rancho Mirage!
We were hired to capture a once in a life time experience (well for the couple!) and photograph their proposal! What a special thing to be hired to photograph! My wife and I planned it with our contact for close to a week. Planning where at the hotel would provide the best view and lighting and what the perfect time would be, what clothes the couple would be wearing etc. A lot of prep goes into lining up these types of shoots as we have to be completely ready to capture the moment.
The adrenaline was pumping...
This isn't like a wedding or a sporting event where we are provided with plenty of opportunities to capture the perfect moment. Instead this is a split second, literally SECONDS in which we have to capture the perfect shot. Evaluating all the technical aspects of photography, ISO, shutter, aperture, white balance, composition, framing etc.
Of course we got the shot!
And to boot the sunset was beyond stunning. The Christmas decorations just brought the glitz to a whole new level. Thank you Ritz Carlton for your incredible Christmas decorations and for being so accommodating to us while we captured this amazing moment.
Well I have talked it up enough, take a look! It was truly a spectacular experience and one we will never forget. Thank you to the amazing couple who brought us out to Palm Springs for their Proposal Photography. We could not be more grateful for you!
