A surprise proposal at Judson Manor Theater in Cleveland.

Oh where to begin with this particular blog post without getting too sappy and/or personal… I can’t.

Erin has been with the Mystic Image team for over 6 years now. She’s been through a lot with us and we truly consider her to be part of our little family; especially since she always tells Paul and I that we are JUST like her parents – lol! So when Erin’s boyfriend (now fiancé ) Mason contacted me a few weeks ago about capturing his proposal to her, I literally screeched with excitement. I always feel that being selected to photograph key moments in peoples’ lives is such a privileged, but this was ENTIRELY DIFFERENT! What an honor to be doing this for “family”!

Erin and Mason first met doing theater productions many years ago; however, this was the first play that they had performed in together in over four years. Mason’s plan was to make this version of “It’s a Wonderful Life” extremely special… and it was! I was so excited and nervous for Erin that I honestly cannot remember exactly how everything went down. Luckily I got some priceless images that will help to fill in the gaps for everyone, including myself.

Erin and Mason, we are so happy and excited for the two of you and your new journey together. Congratulations again and we hope that you love this images from your proposal as much as we love you two!!!


Lana (and Paul)
