Sahir’s Proposal to Karen

I can’t believe that it is already almost a year ago, that I was contacted by Sahir, asking me whether I could be there and take some photos as he would propose to his girlfriend Karen to marry her. Needless to say I was a little bit nervous about the whole idea, not only because I hadn’t shot an actual proposal before, but also because both Karen and Sahir had not been to Edinburgh before, and therefore Sahir was looking at me to help him find the ideal spot where he could pop the question!

Sahir had suggested to Karen to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Edinburgh, so I met them both on Princes Street and we took a walk up to Calton Hill, with it’s fabulous views across Edinburgh. It was at the top of the hill, that Sahir dropped down on one knee and proposed to Karen! And as you can see from the images, she was delighted and she did say yes!
