Finding the words to describe this shoot has been quite a challenge. Capturing something so special, so touching and so monumental in someone’s life is a honor I don’t take lightly. Being there to witness and document a proposal, a wedding or revealing exciting news is something only some of us are lucky enough to experience.
Being there to photograph Jon & Maddy’s special moment was something I was incredibly excited for and super nervous to document all at the same time! We had sun, we had rain, we had passerby’s and we had the risk of getting caught all at the same time! Jon carefully planned out the morning, picked a nice slow time at one of their favorite places; Sweet Cheeks Winery and had everything in place. Maddy and Jon’s family members secretly gathered at the winery each with a sunflower in hand to bring to our unsuspecting bride/fiance-to-be and at the end she would be holding a bouquet of her favorite flowers as Jon approaches and ring in hand, asks her to marry him! Of course she said yes, shed a few happy tears and celebrated happily with family from all across the country! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect proposal to photograph or a more adorable couple! I am beyond happy for these two and wish them all the luck in the world as they plan a wedding and start their lives as husband and wife!!
