Over the last couple of years, I have been dedicated to following some of my favorite photographers on Facebook & their photography blogs. Some of my favorite photographers like Katelyn James & Brooke Courtney have had the opportunity to hide in bushes and wear disguises to capture photos of super nervous boyfriends who are proposing to their girlfriends! After seeing their blog posts about it, looking at their pictures, watching adorable proposal videos on YouTube (come on girls, we all do it!), and looking at precious pictures on my Pinterest feed, I have been hoping & praying that maybe one day someone would ask me to be a top secret, disguised photographer for their proposal!
This summer, I received a message from Todd asking me if there was any way that I would be able to take a trip to Richmond to capture the moment when he would propose to Morgan! I am pretty sure that I screamed of excitement when he asked! Morgan is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met & I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to spend the first 2 years of my college education with her at Liberty! I had met Todd once or twice before, but let’s be honest… once he asked me to do this super special task, he definitely won me over! Morgan, you’ve got a keeper!
Todd proposed at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, Virginia & it was absolutely beautiful! He invited his family, Morgan’s family, and a few of their friends to hide and experience this monumental moment in their lives! I hid in a bush and waited for them to get into place and then I shot away!Enjoy the beautiful memories of their proposal below!
P.S. Men, if you’re wondering if you should have a photographer be there for your proposal, the answer is “YES!”
