Surprise Proposal in Sedona

I LOVE surprise proposals. I also get so nervous right before them. I get more nervous before proposals than wedding days. SO MANY things couple happen unexpectedly!! Where in weddings it’s an event. With this proposal I talked with Tony on the phone to find the perfect location. We had never met in person and I had to be hiding so she didn’t see me or expect anything. So I was nervous we wouldn’t find each other, he wouldn’t see me, he didn’t know I was there, I would be seen and give it all away. BUT NOPE! IT was perfect.

Tony and Sarah met at Clemson while in college. After dating for 5+ years it was time to move forward with a marriage proposal. SHE WAS SHOCKED. And didn’t suspected it at all or see me hiding in the bushes!! We danced after and drank champagne! This adorable couple are so so so in love. What an honor to be there to document this special moment. I want more of these!!!

Tanner + Jessica

HELLO beautiful people and beautiful sunset this session was!!! Do you see those red rocks?! They were showing off that night we explored the creek and enjoyed the sunset. Jessica grew up in Arizona, born and raised but decided to go south for college. Tanner is homegrown southern man from South Carolina! While visiting family out here Jessica really wanted some photos of them two in Sedona for their house. Little did she know Tanner had a surprise at the end. Jessica is this cute, petite, gorgeous woman that has kindness in her eyes. Tanner is like your older brother who wants to watch out for you and would help anyone when they need it. Their love is sweet and what they have between them is this kind of friendship we all dream of.

 

Now even though Jessica had no idea the proposal was going to happen, she planned a sunset couples session. Tanner didn’t even tell me it was going to happen! We all laughed a lot while we got to know each other and took a walk down to the creek. We were racing back up to the top to grab the last bit of light before then sun went down when Tanner gets down on one knee! He got nervous when I said “oh no! Gotta hurry because we are loosing light fast”. She was SO SHOCKED, said YES, and did a little happy dance. It’s one of those moments you won’t forget. No matter how many proposals I see, they never get old, they are all beautiful and intimate, and I feel honored I get to be there at that moment.

It’s a beautiful thing that which we call life.
