Downtown Guelph Surprise Proposal | Bethany + Sara

Locations: Heffernan Street Footbridge, Downtown Guelph, Goldie Mill Park & Ruins, Downtown Guelph | Custom engagement ring from Macadi in Elora, ON

When Sara approached me about shooting her surprise proposal to Bethany I was SO excited. We schemed for weeks about how to get her downtown without giving away the surprise. The morning of, Sara told Bethany she had to run an errand before they went out for their date day, but really she was meeting up with me to pass off the champagne and do a mini shoot with the ring. I'm so glad we made the time to do this; the images we got were totally worth the little bit of extra time and planning!

Sara left to pick Bethany up for their brunch date and I went downtown to find an inconspicuous parking spot and hide under the bridge... like a photographer troll. Sara and I kept in contact via text (and maybe some snaps) so I was ready for their arrival. Once they started walking across the bridge, I snuck up behind them and documented the magic unfolding. Proposals are definitely my new favourite thing to shoot <3

That ring though!

Cheers ladies!

This was my first proposal and at the risk of sounding super cheesy, it was such an intimate and joyful moment to be a part of. If you have some cheese for me to shoot, please get in touch. I'm all about that life <3
