 What a privilege to photograph an engagement as it happens!!! Julian was so excited and planned this engagement to the tee. Lauren did not expect it at all!

Julian’s strategy to keep it a secret:

– not taking Lauren on a proper date in a while

–  telling her that he was first going to finish Law-school before they can get engaged.

– going on a mens-weekend the weekend before, promising to spoil her the following.

– taking her shopping for a new dress the friday evening, having her all dressed up for their “date weekend.”

– blindfolding her close to the spot, so that she will not see me or the picnic set-up.


I absolutely loved documenting all the raw emotions! Thank you Julian (and Lauren!) that I could be there to capture this amazing day. ENJOY!
