This Sunflower Field Photo Session Turned into a Surprise Proposal
Grab your tissues because this proposal gallery brought to us by Ultimate Edge Photography LLC will certainly pull on our heartstrings! (We promise in the very best way possible, though.) When Cassidy agreed to model for a sunflower field photo session, she had no idea Joe would be planning the surprise of a lifetime. With amazing lighting making for a perfect moment (signaled by the photographer), Joe got down on one knee. And by the looks of it, Cassidy was completely shocked and joyous. (Cue the happy tears!) Take a peek at our favorites from this session below.
From Ultimate Edge Photography LLC…I asked Cassidy a few months ago to be my models again for a photoshoot in a sunflower field since this is something I have been wanting to do for a while now. Cassidy suggested Holland Ridge Farms because they have the best sunflowers! Since having the chance to experience Holland Ridge Farms, I have to agree with Cassidy! Holland Ridge Farms sunflowers stand so tall and actually face the sun, not the ground which is something as a photographer I look for. These make for much better images! At this time, this session was just for a simple modeling photoshoot.
Cassidy and I have become close friends this year so when Joe told me he was wanting to propose to Cassidy, ecstatic would be an understatement of how I felt! Joe and I met with each other 2 weeks before to figure out a game plan. Normally for proposals, I have to hide in a bush or act as a random bystander and at the right moment start capturing the proposal. But for Cassidy, she knew we were talking pictures so Joe and I struggled to find what would be the signal. After some thought, I finally had it. The Perfect Moment. I would say something along the lines of “oh my gosh this is such a perfect moment!” and that would be his signal to ask. Since I say “perfect” like crazy during a shoot, we figured this wouldn’t throw her off too much! We wanted to make sure we were in a spot that had amazing lighting, which we found! We wanted to start the shoot to feel like a normal session but we didn’t want to wait to long because we wanted the majority of the session to be about the proposal!
When I gave Joe the signal, he took one giant deep breath before getting down on one knew. Cassidy was flooded with emotions of course, as this has been a long time coming!
