I often get to photograph my own family throughout the year, but this session was extra special. I photographed my uncle’s family this summer, and we invited his girlfriend and her kids to come have their pictures taken too! But surprise surprise, we had something extraordinary planned over a month before! Near the end of the session, my uncle got down on one knee and proposed! Woo hoo! She said yes, and then all their friends and family screamed with excitement from where they were hiding up the hill!

Several months ago, I had the great honor of photographing my dear friend Jessica’s surprise proposal! Her Fiancé Patrick and I scheduled this special day weeks in advance. We originally planned Trinity Park, where they had their first date, but the morning of the scheduled proposal I drove by and discovered that there was a marathon happening exactly there then! I panicked! Thankfully Jessica sleeps in late, so I was able to call Patrick without them already being together. I called him and we decided to relocate to the gorgeous outdoor area in front of their wedding venue! His parents were in town from Louisiana and her family were hiding behind the barn! They all came out to surprise and congratulate the happy couple. It was pretty special for me, because I get to be in this amazing couple’s wedding in November! And I also was able to photograph her brother’s surprise proposal about a year ago, that blog will come soon! 🙂
