Surprise Engagement at White Rock Lake!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE photographing families, but occasionally I get to mix it up a bit and do something different.  When my husband’s co-worker contacted me about photographing his surprise proposal to his girlfriend, I was ALL in.  I think it’s the sweetest and most romantic idea to have a photographer attend to document such a huge moment.

We met at White Rock Lake just minutes before the “groom to be” was meeting his girlfriend.  I was able to get a quick rundown of how the proposal would happen and a few special instructions.  I found an empty bench away from the area they would be and practiced my best “artsy girl on a bench who is creepily taking pictures of strangers pose.”  ha!  The cute couple was off geocaching and would arrive soon to find a special box with a beautiful note, photo album of special events, and a flower.  In the beginning I stayed back to give them their privacy and just used a long lens.  I don’t think I will ever forget the look of love and surprise on her face when she first realized that this was a PROPOSAL!  I’m pretty sure I was wiping away tears too.

And no shocker, but SHE SAID YES!  The evening was perfect and I loved being a small part of it.  I can see why wedding photographers love their job!  Photographing a couple in love – with all of the excitement ahead and the joy of a lifetime together is incredible.  Congratulations to this beautiful couple!
