Who WOULDN’T WANT a proposal photographer to capture such a surprise!?
When Meg won a free couples session, it INSTANTLY was the best cover for their proposal. Major shout out to Luke for planning this surprise proposal and even including their pup, Onyx, in the surprise.
While I am used to shooting weddings and engagements, I LOVE getting to be there the moment the proposal happens. The look of shock, excitement and pure happiness warms my heart. You can see the world disappear as they lock eyes with one another and realize they are spending the rest of their life with the one person they love indefinitely.
These two are some of the most laid-back and friendly people I know. Not only did they bring Meg’s cousin and her fiancé to the shoot to make it A PARTY, but we listened to music the entire time.
When I took the back-to-back shots, we started playing their favorite song, Growing Old With You by Restless Road *insert tears because of how adorable it was*! Luke took a step away, got on one knee and the pictures tell the rest of the story! Having Onyx there was just icing on top of the cake!
This surprise proposal was everything we could have asked for. A beautiful day, a surreal location, and the ultimate couple. Meg + Luke have known each other for 8 years, were best friends for 5, and dating the past 3. If you ask Luke when he knew Meg was the one he might say “I don’t know, when I looked at her.” Talk about DESTINY.
These two reminded me why I love being not only a wedding or engagement photographer but a proposal photographer too. I want to be there every step of the way.
