Travis & Steph, Surprise Proposal | Red Deer Engagement Photographer

He had been planning the surprise proposal since January. Valuable time was spent searching for the right photographer- he had a vision after all. He was so excited while laying out his ideas and so was I! A proposal has been on my bucket list for a while.

Travis & Steph, The Surprise Proposal

He had been planning the surprise proposal since January. Valuable time was spent searching for the right photographer- he had a vision after all. He was so excited while laying out his ideas and so was I! A proposal has been on my bucket list for a while.

Saturday rolled around and we met at our planned location- he didn’t seem nervous in the least! She was all dolled up, excited for the session and had no idea what we were up to. We strolled up to a beautiful spot on the CPR Bridge that overlooked the river and had a background of lush, green foliage. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw him take a step away from her and then nod- the signal I had been waiting for. This was the spot. In an effort to uphold the surprise, I had her turn her back to us, for ‘a few portraits’ I said. She must of thought I was a little weird. He was able to take a moment to gather his thoughts and prepare the beautiful ring he had chosen. 

The sun was out, the sky was blue, and there was a light breeze- the scene was perfect. Even the somewhat steady flow of pedestrians slowly dispersed. I subconsciously held my breath as he knelt down on one knee behind her, and everything became very still & quiet.

Then she turned around.

Her expression was one of pure shock, excitement, happiness, love, and more excitement. Happy tears began to flow. It was worth every minute to see the genuine smiles and love during such a big moment in their lives.

Congratulations again on your engagement, Travis & Steph!! It was a truly amazing moment and we are so honored to have been there to document it.

Enjoy!
