This was a first ever for us. We had never shot an ACTUAL engagement/proposal before. Sure we had shot many an engagement session, but never the actual moment when the question was asked. So it was a pretty big moment for us….and of course for them as well. 🙂
Sean and I had been working on the details of this moment for months. Even the night before we were on the phone going over all possible scenarios that could ruin the SURPRISE that was to be! I am proud to say the big moment was pulled off successfully without a hitch! She was shocked, he was elated, and I was lucky enough to catch it all!
We started things off just like a basic, normal, couples session. We wanted Billie to be comfortable in what she “thought” was going to go down.
They’re pretty cute together.
Then after getting the signal from me once I got her in the right position…IT HAPPENED!
Billie was so shocked she didn’t even know how to react!
Then there was lots of emotions. Tears, smiles, giggles, and lots of snuggles!
Sean is actually my husband’s cousin. And I used to be his baby-sitter. So this was a special moment anyway, but in all the years I have known him I have never seen him smile like this! I think this was easily the happiest day of his life!
I would also like to point out that Sean planned every detail to this day perfectly. Right down to picking out, purchasing and putting together their perfectly coordinated outfits!
The Riverside, Farnsley-Moreman Landing provided a gorgeous backdrop for a wonderful day. We are so happy for you guys and can not wait to get the ball rolling on planning your big day. I know it will be every bit as perfect as this day was. Congratulations!
