It’s no secret that surprise proposals are one of my FAVORITE things to capture. I just love the excitement of it all – the planning, the anticipation, and of course the moment of surprise! This surprise proposal, however, was a little different: I got to be a part of the cover story.
Kevin and Brandon found me last month and ended up booking their 2022 wedding… before they were officially engaged! I knew that they were planning to propose to each other, and secretly hoping I’d get to capture one of these moments. I was SO excited when Brandon asked me to capture his proposal to Kevin!!
After weeks of secret emails and phone calls, Brandon and I came up with a game plan. Their friend Allie (shout out to Allie!) suggested Game Night Out as a perfect place for Brandon to propose. Because the party room would be empty, Brandon could decorate to his heart’s desire! And – with the help of friends and family – that’s exactly what he did!!
We got Kevin to Lincoln Park under the pretense that they were modeling for a new video on my web site. Oh – and by this time, Kevin had already proposed to Brandon!! He expected Brandon to pop the question during their mini session, and when that didn’t happen, we KNEW he’d be surprised. I ran to the party room at lightning speed, and when the two of them arrived, it was perfect. Brandon finally asked Kevin to marry him, and Kevin said YES. To top it all off, a group of friends and family were waiting in the next room to congratulate them!
CONGRATULATIONS, Brandon and Kevin!! I’m so happy I was able to be there for this moment. Can’t wait to work together again soon 🙂
