Are you looking to get engaged and would like to capture the moment? Many people are hiring a photographer to capture your surprise proposal. My client was out of town and wanted to pop the question in Loudoun County Virginia. He called me to see if I could hide and make sure to capture the exact moment when he got down on one knee. We talked about his girlfriend’s style and different settings that could work. I suggested Morven Park. I told him I could lay a blanket and some sparkling wine on the front lawn right in front of the beautiful white mansion. This way he would know where to walk to and I could position it perfectly from my hiding spot behind the tree. We continued to go back and forth with romantic ideas for the surprise proposal. I purchased 4 dozen roses and lined the walkway to the picnic blanket. I left a basket with champagne glasses, strawberries, and a reserved sign.
Everything worked out perfectly and she said YES!
There are so many moments and emotions after an engagement!
After the proposal took place I introduced myself and then we decided to start the engagement photo shoot. These images make wonderful announcements or save the date invitations.
