SASKATCHEWAN SURPRISE PROPOSAL SESSION - josh + alana, engagement photographer, craik sk

Ok. So about this time last year, Josh called me up and asked me about my thoughts on photographing a PROPOSAL to his then girlfriend Alana. Of course I was like "HECK TO THE YES!" After that, we had to sort out the logistics; how would this come together in a "natural" way, so as not to tip off Alana to our scheming. Being out in a rural community, I knew I would have to either hide and pop out at the opportune moment to catch the proposal, or come up with a plan where they would already be in front of the camera. I decided to run a model call - and of course, Alana won ;) It all was easy enough to arrange after that!

I honestly think this may have been the most nervous I have ever been during a session of any kind, including a wedding! There is something so exhilarating and magical about proposals, and I am so glad I was able to capture this one for these two lovely humans! I am super duper excited for their wedding later this month! Can't wait to capture more magic with them!

Hmmmm... what's in that ice cream Alana?

Anddddd the ice cream goes down one she see's the ring!
