{austin photographer} a surprise proposal in houston

A little back story –  this groom-to-be’s cousin, Thu, and I grew up attending the same church. The last time I saw her, we were in high school. You can imagine my delight when I heard from her as inquired about me traveling to Houston for this shoot. A reunion AND a surprise proposal photos? I said YES and we began strategizing immediately.

Lauren thought she was traveling from Minnesota to Houston for a quick weekend visit with her boyfriend’s family and friends.  She was also only partially right when she thought she would be going to the park on Friday evening for a family portrait session. Little did she know, a big surprise proposal had been in the works for some time and everyone else was in on it. You can imagine the excitement as they awaited the big moment from the sideline. Everything happened so quickly and I’m so glad I was able to capture these moments from afar.

These two are the sweetest and I have never found myself hugging clients so much during a shoot!!

Congratulations Lauren and Quy. Lauren, I know you will make one stunning bride 🙂 And thank you, Thu, for making sure this moment will be remembered forever.
