It isn't every day that I get a call to photograph a proposal - especially for my own sister-in-law! Brandon called me a few weeks ago to see if I would help him pull off his idea of a beach proposal - of course I was SO excited to help!!! Most know that Emily and Brandon live in Ohio, so a beach proposal is kind of difficult to arrange. However, Emily just happened to be visiting me for the Fourth of July Holiday so this was the perfect opportunity!
We planned our annual family photo session for July 3rd. It was nothing out of the ordinary for Emily because we have taken our family photos for several years now. Brandon drove over eleven hours after working several twelve hours shifts at his job. He arrived just a few hours prior to the proposal, but he was so calm and collected. We went over the plan a few times and then he hid in his car until she arrived with the rest of the family.
I pulled Emily aside during the session and told her I needed some shots of her for my Instagram and Website. I had to keep her from looking back so I kept saying, "Oh, PERFECT! Stay just like that, don't move". Brandon got in place, said her name, and the rest is history!
Congratulations and Best Wishes, Emily and Brandon!
