LOVE AND ESPIONAGE ON BROADWAY - A Jared and Katlyn Love Story
 Several weeks ago our phone rang at the studio. There was a man's voice on the other end of the line. He wanted to know if we were busy on Friday night. "Why?" I asked. "I am going to ask my girlfriend to marry me and I need to have it photographed," he told me. I love a good surprise. This was going to be a big one and we, unfortunately, were not available on the night in question. I was bummed. I thought we had missed an opportunity to witness a great photo love story. I was wrong. 
 A couple of weeks later the phone rang again and the man asked about the upcoming weekend. We hadn't missed the opportunity after all. Apparently he was having some difficulty making all the stars align which was our good fortune. This time we were available on the night in question. But now we needed more information. A meeting was set to go over the clandestine details. On the day of the meeting, we arrived at the Fargo Theater - the scene of the "crime" as it turned out - and met our operative, Jared, for the first time. He explained his plan to us. Since we always photograph as a team of three, we would be able to provide coverage from several locations in the area which was of huge importance to Jared. We discussed specifics, gave him some technical advice, and decided on a timeframe. The countdown began.
 Several days later, we texted Jared to alert him that we were on our way to the Fargo Theater to take our positions and make all the necessary technical arrangements before their arrival. He texted back that he would let us know as soon as they left their house and were on their way. When we arrived at the theater, we found a small crowd had gathered and there were people with video cameras and large spotlights and other gear on scene. We thought "Wow! Jared is doing this one up right!" but soon discovered the hoopla was for another reason. It was 'Mad Frank Presents Mad Frank' night at the Fargo Theater!! A beeping in my pocket let me know a text had just arrived. It was Jared. "We are on our way!" it announced. Now we were concerned. We did not know if the crowds of people would cause problems viewing the proposal and thus prohibit our creating the kinds of pictures Jared hoped for. Normally the front of the Fargo Theater is a no parking zone but on this night, there were cars stopping so passengers who needed extra assistance could get out in front of the theater. We were becoming increasingly worried as time passed not knowing how it would all come together once Jared and Katlyn arrived.
 Once again my phone beeped letting me know a text had been received. The text read "north side" and we knew they were close by. Thankfully, by that time nearly everyone had already entered the theater and the street was once again relatively clear in the designated proposal location. We saw the couple approach and we went to work. The images that follow tell the rest of their story.
 We want to thank Jared and Katlyn (although she didn't know she was going to be a part of this photographic encounter!) for providing the opportunity for us to capture their romantic, and covert, love story moment. And yes, Jared, we did hold our breath when the ring fell to the ground! But we have one heckuva picture showing exactly when it happed! Very nice retrieve, sir!!!
