2019 kicks off with a Surprise Proposal!
What a start to 2019! We love a bit of romance so when Matthew approached us to capture his surprise proposal to his girlfriend Kerrie over the Christmas period.
We were only too happy to oblige! A Surprise Proposal is something that has been on our bucket list of things to shoot
Ashton Park was the chosen location as this was where they had first met and they love the walk their rescue dog Louie here or along the Wirral Way too
The Surprise Proposal Plan
Matthew arranged a chat with us a month or so before and also so we would recognise him on the day!
There was location scouting of the park for where Matthew could propose and we could be out of sight at different places and capture the moment
Images were sent – denoting choices and a certain tree was earmarked for a certain time. We had our plan!
As it happened New Year’s Day was the best day and time was set for mid morning so they then had the rest of the afternoon and evening with their families to share the news.
Capturing the Surprise Proposal
So New Year’s Day dawed – a little rain early o. The plan B for under the bridge to escape any rain was not needed as the skies cleared and evened turned to blue skies
We made our way , a short walk from home to Ashton Park and took up our positions out of sight, hiding behind bushes!
Soon Matthew and Kerrie arrived and we clicked away. Turned out just perfect, neither of them saw us! Sure they were just engrossed with each other.
We left them for a couple of minutes to hug and enjoy the moment to themselves, before joining them to congratulate them.
kerrie was completely surprise. This was such a privilege to capture and what a wonderful start to 2019 for them.
The shooting didn’t end there we continued with an engagement shoot for them.
Some 100 images in their gallery for them to treasure
Here just a few highlights to enjoy.
