Surprise Proposal - Deep Creek Maryland



APRIL 2, 2016



This engagement was exciting for many reasons.

1. This beautiful girl is my little sister.  2. I was asked to help plan a surprise proposal that she would love!     3. She said "YES!"

 I was so blessed to be a part of such a beautiful story and capture these priceless moments.


A few weeks before RJ took Michaela to the mall to pick out an outfit for "family portraits". What better cover than "Family Portraits" for a surprise proposal. The day before we left he sent Michaela off to have her nails done. Before we left for Maryland, RJ slipped me the ring and I hid it in my camera bag so she didn't see it. 

The Day:

After a few family portraits our mom and Michaela took the children up to the car because it was so cold and windy.  While Michaela was away, I gave RJ the piece of paper  and the ring and took a few portraits before Michaela came back down from the car. When the time was right he took the ring out of his pocket and hid it behind his back so I could snap a few shots, while Michaela was in complete oblivion. 

 I positioned myself and told Michaela it was time to turn around and at that moment RJ got down on one knee and asked his beautiful woman to be his wife. I could hear her asking in the distance "Babe! What did you do?" with a huge smile on her face and then she took a step back and began to cry.

Tears filled my eyes as I was trying to capture every intimate detail of this beautiful occasion. I will never forget the smile on my baby sisters face, (I am tearing up while I am writing this). Congratulations RJ and Michaela and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful day! 

It has always been a dream of mine to photograph a surprise proposal! There is something so magical about being able to photograph two people in the middle of a special moment like this.  To all the men out there that are getting ready to surprise their queen and would like a photographer to capture the beautiful moment for her; hit the button below and schedule a time and date with us so we can capture your surprise proposal. 

The Leonard's Bridal Session

The Leonard's are such a wonderful couple. I had the honor of being a part of their wedding 5 years ago and I now had the privileged of blessing them with a "Bridal Session".

We started our adventure at the Garden and Civic Center in Greensburg, PA. This was where Tyler & Jennafer said "I Do".  The green bricks on the lanais made for a unique and perfect wedding venue and location to re-shoot their wedding portraits. It was a poetic experience, as this was the first time they had been back to the location where they committed themselves to one another in Holy Matrimony.  We then moved to Senton Hill University as we traced our steps back to the original location the Leonard's wedding portraits were taken.

 I am so captivated by this couple and these beautiful images we were able to capture together.
