Love Shoot with a surprise proposal

This is just the sweetest wee shoot you ever did see!!! Billy & Rachel Hyer were recently on hand to capture the proposal of their friends on camera... I'll let them tell the story themselves...

"Perry is a friend of ours and as we were on the phone with him he told us he was going to ask Linh to merry him. We happily threw out the idea of making it a photo opportunity. The idea, as you probably know, was to make it just seem like they were doing us a favor to expand our portfolio, little did Linh know that it was going to be the day her future husband asks her to merry him! We found this old abandoned 18th century village filled with character, it was perfect. We photographed for around 20 mins. before Perry grew the courage to give us the signal, a cough. Once we got the signal we both took our angles and began to hit the shutter button to capture what they will never forget. Needless to say Linh happily said "yes" and they have photos to forever remember that day. One of the coolest moments of our photography career."

See what I mean... isn't that just lovely? And didn't they get some great shots... I'm in love with that little cabin!!

These photos deserve to be preserved in a bound book that they can "read" to their children. I love the element of surprise that you captured. The look on her face is priceless and how fun for her to be able to see her reaction. I love the simple surroundings which only enhance the handsome couple more! The field shot looks like an artists painting. This is truly unusual and BEAUTIFUL work!!
