Secret Wedding Proposal Engagement Photography She Said “YES!”

Proposing to your girlfriend is HIGH STRESS – not only do you need to be sure emotionally, it needs to be a great story that she will tell for a lifetime.

So when Andrew called me to say he was ready to propose to girlfriend Danielle, I was ready to help out any way I could.

We worked together making a top secret plan that was sure to be a surprise.

He wanted to meet at the County Administration Building near the statue for a little “walk” on the way to her birthday dinner.

She didn’t know there was a ring in his pocket and I was pretending to be a random tourist photographing the statue….

and then, THIS happened!

After a few minutes of crying and smiling and saying YES – we thought it was a good time to capture some engagement portraits!

(Since my sessions – even surprise proposals are an hour long, we had plenty of time for more photography!)

I had a little route planned for us all around the courthouse.  I love this one because you can see THEIR proposal statue in the background!!

I made sure to capture a mix of posed and candid – formal and fun portraits so their gallery would be AMAZING!

And then they sat down to tell his parents (in Canada) the news – have you ever seen such happy faces???

And since I’m such a storyteller, I asked if we could take a family photo with his parents….how cute is this?

Then we kept moving in a circle around the County Administration building – following a route I’d preplanned but still allowing for random photos if they saw something they liked….

This is the portrait they chose for their 16×20 canvas

(yep – that’s included along with the retouched high resolution digital files for their entire gallery of 200+ more portraits!)

I kept my eye on our time because we were supposed to meet her family – they were in-the-know about the wedding proposal surprise

but were waiting around the corner so the couple had privacy….

And then it was family hug time!

After random hug-y-ness (yay!) we decided it was time for some family photos to capture that moment for a lifetime!

Wait till you see this next one in video:
