A Surprise Proposal in the Hills Above Griffith Observatory

Petr and his girlfriend were in town from Prague… He had supplied the coordinates for an overlook along the trails that climb up above the Griffith Observatory into the Hollywood Hills. The plan for a surprise sunset proposal was in action! A violinist who was also hired for this occasion also hiked up the mountain, and as we waited for them to arrive I took photos of her (the lovely Margarita Krein) as a ruse. It all worked beautifully. A philharmonic performance on a mountain top, an incredibly surprised/elated/stunned gf and some glowing photos to capture all but the sound in the air… Even I was surprised by how friggin beautiful the thing was!! And let there be no doubt, she said yes ;)
