Surprise engagement in Folsom, CA
Wow. Just wow. One of my favorite engagement photo sessions to date has to be this one right here. Nick contacted me and said that he wanted to set up a photo session for himself and his girlfriend, Nicole, to have some couple's portraits taken. With a twist... halfway through the session, he wanted to propose to her and catch it all on camera!
Wanna know the second twist?! Nicole is my little sister! So yeah, I was definitely in.
A couple of days before their engagement session was scheduled to take place, we drove out to a cool little spot near Folsom Lake (Folsom, CA). We planned out exactly where the proposal would take place, and came up with a master plan for how we were going to pull this off. He even practiced getting down on one knee in advance!
Meanwhile, Nicole had no idea what was about to take place. This was truly going to be a complete surprise since she thought they were just going to be taking some updated couple's photos.
Saturday arrived. We got to the location and started off with some portraits of Nicole by herself and then got a few couple's photos with her and Nick together. We "casually" kept walking to another spot nearby, which was also the spot that we had scouted out for the proposal moment to happen. We took a few more couple's photos, and then...
Best. Surprise. Ever.
Here's to a lifetime of happiness for these two! Thank you to Nick for trusting me to capture your surprise engagement session!
