Where do we even begin?? Nick and Laura did a shoot with us at the river and we loved how natural they looked in front of the camera. When Nick contacted us to capture a surprise proposal we about passed out from excitement. Nick had the idea to plan it as a “Fall Shoot.” A date and time was set and Laura had NO idea what was coming! She contacted us a few days before about outfit ideas. We didn’t want to tip her off by asking her to overdress, so to keep with the cover-up, we suggested a Fall themed outfit.
As the day approached, it took every ounce of us not to say a word. We met up at Ingleside Vineyards in Oak Grove, Virginia and started off the shoot just like a couples session. We shot for an hour, letting the suspense build. There was a moment while the sun was setting behind the vineyards as Nick and Laura stood between the vines, waiting for direction of the next pose. We asked Laura to close her eyes, step away and face Nick. As she opened her eyes, Nick suggests an idea and reaches into his pocket.. at this point our cameras were ready, hearts racing and anticipating the moment. Laura knew what was happening when she saw Nick reach into his pocket and dig deep to pull out a gorgeous ring. The moment was like no other. Beautiful, pure and raw. As Laura pulled in Nick, emotional and radiating with joy, Nick says “But you didn’t even look at it!” and Laura replied “I don’t care, yes!” our hearts melted.
The ring was STUNNING. From the planning, to the ring, to making Laura the happiest woman on Earth, we applaud Nick for his work! Congratulations Nick and Laura!! We are soo incredibly excited, happy and honored you let us be a part of such an amazing moment. SO enough talking and lets get to these images!! You guys are in for a treat! Take a look:
As we are leading up to The Big Moment…
Congrats again, Nick and Laura!!!
