An awesome client of ours referred our services to Arik, who reached out to me via instagram. We set up a time to discuss the session & I learned that he wanted to surprise propose to his lovely girlfriend Candace at High Falls Park – the place of one of their first couple of dates.
Normally engagement shoots are pretty routine, however because he wanted this was a surprise, he had to camouflage his intentions by inviting 2 other couples to come & telling her that his friend had set up a couples shoot & that he wanted them to go and get some shots as well! Candace would later reveal that she had no idea & was completely caught off guard – Mission accomplished Arik!
Couples shoots are always fun, I tend shoot them a non-traditionally as far as posing & vibe. So I shot all 3 couples in different ways, while Rhonda ran the behind the scenes filming. Arik’s cue to us was once we got down by the falls, he was going to pull her aside & say “I have something to ask you” – once he said that, his sister was near to hand him the ring. He said that he had a speech prepared but he had forgot all of it in the heat of the moment ha ha! No worries though as my wife and I was in the perfect position to capture all of the spontaneous moments from a session such as this.
A week later at their reveal session, the tears of joy flowed reliving all the memories from that day. To us, that’s really what its all about – creating memories like these & creating clients for life. God Bless
