I was SO excited when Madi contacted me to do some pictures of her and her boyfriend, Ryan. But, I was even MORE excited when Madi’s sister, Catie, came to see me one day and said, “So, Ryan wants to propose to Madi during the session!”
Catie and Ryan orchestrated how we were going to pull it off… We decided waiting until the session was “over” would be best, that way we could get pictures before the crying/makeup smudges commenced 🙂
I had the ring box in my camera bag the whole time, and strategically told Madi to face away and walk forward until I told her to stop. When she wasn’t looking, I quickly handed the box to Ryan, who followed her to where she was standing and, when she turned around, he got down on one knee and popped the question!
Madi’s reaction could not have been any sweeter. This was my first time doing a surprise engagement session and I was SO nervous myself! It was so much fun, though, and I absolutely love the genuine emotions I was able to capture that day. So without further ado, congratulations Ryan and Madi!
