I have never been a part of planning a proposal, and I wasn't expecting to be a part of one anytime soon. But when the chance to shoot this surprise one for Gideon and Taylor came up, I had to say 'yes'! Everything about it seemed to line up perfectly. Gideon planned it better than any man I have ever heard of or known before. He knew what he wanted and how he wanted to do it, I just had to figure out a way to get her to turn her back just long enough during the session for him to go down on one knee. Taylor knew they had a session that day, but she just thought it was a couples session that Gideon and her friend planned after winning a giveaway. 😉 She had no idea, which made it even more incredible. Taylor had originally thought Gideon was planning to propose on their three year anniversary of being together, but little did she know, he had already been planning a surprise proposal for nearly a month before their anniversary - but for a different date. Enjoy seeing how all this played out, and even enjoy the images we got before he proposed!
P.S Make use of fallen trees that have not been cleared yet....😉
This picture of Gideon with the ring literally 1 minute before he proposed and she even saw is one of my favorite pictures from the entire gallery!
I loved how these little moments played out from the moment she turned around and saw him on one knee to their whispers and excitement. ❤️
This ring was so beautiful!! I loved it. 😍
Ending with one of my favorite images from the session. I think it's because of the sun flare, which is one of my weaknesses as a photographer. 😆 I hope you enjoyed looking through this sweet proposal, and comment below and let me know what your favorite photo was!
