We thought we’d start today off with an adorable proposal story! It’s always fun to hear the stories behind a proposal. Today we have the details of Holly and Nick’s proposal from their photographer, Angela of Essenza Studio.
Angela: Nick wanted to propose to Holly in a clever way, so I was called to stage a family portrait in her dad’s gorgeous backyard in Cincinnati, Ohio. On the day of, some of the family members pretended as though they weren’t ready on time. Planned, I photographed Nick’s sister and her boyfriend to hint that we’ll start with couples shots first. Then I photographed Nick and Holly. She was truly shocked and surprised to turn and find Nick on his knee with a ring in hand. Tears welling up, she flung her arms around him in excitement. She then looked at me and realized that the whole thing was planned. It was very touching as the entire family watched from a close distance. They celebrated afterwards with hugs, tears, laughs and champagne!
Thanks for sharing this sweet proposal story with us, Angela! Congratulations Holly and Nick!
