A sneaky Proposal | Peace River Engagement Photographer

I’m sooooo excited to be showing these pictures.  This past Saturday I was hired to do family pictures by Sarah.  She tells me what she is looking to capture family pictures of her,  her husband, her parents and her brother and his girl friend. She tells me she wants outdoor pictures with the beautiful fall colors.

Well, the next day I get a call back she is very excited to tell me the news. Her brother Sterling wants to propose to his girl friend Michelle during their family session.  I’m over the moon to be invited to be apart of this special moment.
I tell her we will do the family pictures first, then individuals of all the couples and have her brother go last that way I can have them in the frame all by themselves.  Sarah tells me  they were thinking of using a code word. I’m suppose to say “Hey Sterling do you need that extra prop” lol.  I ask  Sarah to confirm with her brother if that is the code we are going to be using, but she never calls me back.  No big deal I figure we will wing it.  So Stirling big moment comes.  He is not popping the question because I was not saying the code word.  He is so nervous and kept grabbing for his pocket where the ring was.  So I turn around to where his sister is standing lip to her ” Is it time.”  She nods and walks up beside me and mentions to her brother ”  Is it time for that special prop. “Sterling girl friend Michelle said  ” What special prop.”

I will let the images tell the rest of the story.

Thanks guys for letting me take pictures of this I was so excited and still am for you two.  Please check back later for the rest of their family pictures.
