Kamloops Surprise Proposal
Surprise Proposals are one of the coolest parts of my jobs and this one was one of the most special sessions I’ve ever gotten to be a part of because I love Tamara so much! Triston is so incredibly sweet, and her sister Nicole was so amazing at helping plan the whole thing out, and together we came up with a plan to completely surprise Tamara with Triston’s proposal!
I had told the sisters that I needed to revamp some of my portrait session material and that I needed some models to re-do my photos (knowing that they are always up for any of my ideas and would be willing to be in the water or laying on the rocks, or any of the other crazy ideas I normally have!) I told them that as a bonus Laine had a cancellation and would be doing the hair and makeup for the session (yay Laine for being in on the surprise as well!)
Triston and I headed to the photo site early, and we found a spot for him to hide out in the bushes until we signalled for him to come down! What a trooper! He waited for almost an hour while we slowly crossed the river, and I did some photos of Nicole and Tamara together and separately to completely throw her off in case she was starting to think something was up! When we were ready, I was doing a few photos of Tamara by herself with her back to Triston as he approached and got down on one knee! The rest was a blur of emotion as she cried and said YES! After that we were able to do a bunch of photos of the two of them before they went out to celebrate their engagement! What an incredible day it was 🙂 I couldn’t be more happy for them both, and I can’t wait for their wedding day! xo
