A couple of weekends ago, a good friend of mine presented me with the opportunity to capture his BIG moment…

Trayvon spent weeks making plans with family, friends, and co-workers for what would be one of life’s biggest surprises for his girlfriend, Talia.  For months, Talia had been asking him to schedule a couples shoot. However, with them living in Macon and only periodically returning back to the Metro area, there was never a good opportunity to do so. It just so happens that a Saturday night Hawks game proved to be the perfect opportunity. Since Talia knows who I am and would probably recognize me trying to capture the moment, I decided to bust out an old favorite of mine: “The Stache.” That’s right, I showed up to the game as an old man! If you only knew the looks I got when I entered Phillips Arena with that thing on! Some thought it was real…and others were convinced that I was with the TV show “Cheaters” scouting out the next dirtbag! LOL. Talia was absolutely clueless about their BIG moment! Even after she said “Yes” and I attempted to take a few celebratory photos of the two them, she had NO clue I was the photographer. I got absolutely no “camera love” from her with “The Stache” on! Afterwards, she told me that she thought I was some creepy old man “Doing The Most.” LOL
