I was absolutely thrilled to a part of Reeve's plan to propose to his long time girlfriend Abigayle. He bought her a gift certificate for a family photography session and gave it to her for Valentine's Day. Abigayle had been wanting to to some family portraits for a while and was super excited as we planned their shoot together. We came up with a Pinterest what to wear board and she did a great job of keeping me in the loop when shopping. The efforts yielded perfectly coordinated outfits for the whole family.
As Abigayle had envisioned something with a country flair, and a Scottish festival had taken over the park we had originally planned to shoot at, we headed out to Nelson, Nevada for their shoot. It worked out perfectly for their rustic session. We got some great family shots and once everyone was comfortable in front of the camera I took some couple's portraits which gave Reeve the opportunity to drop on one knee and propose Abigayle. I love her surprised and shocked look. Reeve said he had to ask a few times as she was in so much shock she forgot to answer. Abigayle was so excited she kept running up to everyone to tell them she just got proposed to and to show them the ring, it was so cute! Needless to say she was on cloud 9 the rest of the session.
After we got accomplished what we came for Abigayle had planned a fun paint war to end the session with. The kids especially had fun running around squirting pain on each other but I think it's obvious to see fun was had by everyone.
It's so awesome to be apart of and to document such a genuine and important moment in someone's life. I can't wait to deliver their canvas, storyboard, prints and images to them today as their first official family heirlooms. Thanks guys and enjoy your custom photography!
