Getting engaged is a big milestone that marks the beginning of a new chapter in a couple’s life together. It’s a time filled with excitement, joy, and anticipation as two people commit to building a future together. To make sure you and your sweetheart have a memorable experience do your research and find the perfect place to pop the question. Capturing the magic of a surprise marriage proposal is an exciting experience for a photographer. Anticipation hangs in the air as the moment approaches, heartbeats quicken, and emotions run high. The photographer becomes a silent witness, hidden from view, ready to immortalize the raw, unfiltered reactions of love and joy.

 I had the honor of photographing a surprise proposal at the Auberge Du Soleil in Napa, CA and I loved every minute of it! Brett decided to ask Brianna to marry him during their romantic getaway to Wine Country, California. He told me that it certainly was surprise and Brianna had no idea he might ask her to marry him. You can see in the photos below that he was right. I loved her reaction and how excited she was. Indeed there’s so much love between them and they are not afraid to express it. As a photographer, I feel privileged to witness and document this milestone in these beautiful people’s lives! Check out some photos from this magical day.

Without a doubt, a well-thought-out proposal not only creates a memorable experience but also shows thoughtfulness, consideration, and commitment. Brett hired an acoustic guitarist to make this moment even more memorable and Brianna loved it!
