A PROPOSAL!!! Blake and Lauren – Toledo Engagement Photographer

I have to skip ahead a little bit in blogging to share something really special that happened last night!  I am still riding on a little high from being a part of the scheming that went off so well!!

You might recognize Lauren and Blake from last fall when I did a couple session with them.  At the time they talked about how they want to get married on a certain day that is special to them, but they weren’t engaged yet.  In the time since, they talked about having me photograph their wedding but still no engagement.  Then I got a call for another wedding on their date and I gave them the heads up so they booked me for their wedding.  And still no engagement :)  This was all still last fall…

Not long after, Blake contacted me and told me his plans to surprise Lauren with a proposal and have me photograph it all!  We went back and forth about how to lure her to the spot he chose without tipping her off…of course now it’s spring and their wedding date is inching closer and closer so Lauren has been expecting it soon.

Last week, I emailed Lauren to ask her if she could model for me while I train my new intern…we met last night at the Botanical Gardens and as we started walking to the right spot Lauren showed me her hand and told me still no ring!  Then she started chatting about how she really thinks it will happen in the next week or two and I had to really fight to keep a straight face!  We got the the right spot and had Lauren start posing for us and I said the code words for Blake to come out from the other side of the hedges.   Check out the first shot…Lauren was posing and didn’t notice Blake until he was right next to her:

She still didn’t know what was going on, and it made me smile to look at the whole sequence last night and see that he had the box in his hand as he walked up to her, but she had her eyes on his face the whole time.   Then he got down on one knee:

We were all crying…my hands were shaking…it was so beautiful!!

And WOW did he do a great job on the ring!!   Check her out blinding everyone on the news this morning here.

Jessica and I left them and I turned to get one last shot…Blake was still wiping her tears.  Lauren and Blake, you are such an amazing couple together, your love for each other is overwhelming!  I can not wait for your wedding!

I had a lot of images I loved…but didn’t want to over load the blog so go to my facebook page to see the rest!

Don’t forget to have your friends and family comment on your session blog posts…my first family to do this had their 25 comments within an hour and will have a surprise coming with their order!
