Surprise Engagement | Williamsport Wedding Photographer
I’ll never forget that phone call from Matt asking if I was available the next day for a surprise engagement session. It was great – and luckily I was able to squeeze him in that afternoon. It was a gorgeous Saturday morning up Pine Creek. I arrived early, parked my car in a hidden alcove on the opposite side of the house and greeted both Matt and Laura’s parents whom were waiting excitedly down by the creek. Laura’s sister played a big role as she was tasked with holding up the “Will You Marry Me?” sign. There were beautiful red roses, bottles of champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a popcorn maker – Laura loves popcorn and so Matt’s parents gifted them one as an engagement present. We were unsure if when Matt and Laura arrived they would go through the house or along side the house in the yard to get back to a small get together (as Laura was told). As Matt pulled into the drive, he “accidentally” beeped the horn so that all of us were aware of their arrival. Then we waited. Impatiently. Excitedly. Just then, both of them came out from the back door of the house and walked down to where Laura’s sister sat with the sign. Pure shock! Matt knelt down, sharing his loving words with Laura and then finally asked, “Will You Marry Me?”. “YES!”, Laura replied as she held her shaking hands over her mouth. They hugged and kissed and hugged and kissed. It was wonderful. Emotional. Beautiful. I was so thrilled to be able to capture this special moment for Matt and Laura.
After spending some time with family, Matt, Laura and I stepped away to take some engagement portraits.
Congratulations Matt + Laura on your engagement!
