This sweet proposal in Stillwater still has my heart so warm and fuzzy! Steve planned this surprise Stillwater proposal photos with such care and detail.  It was so obvious how much he completely adores Ellia, planning every detail with her in mind.

He planned to propose on Stillwater, which is a town that Ellia adores! Then he created a book with photos from all of their trips and planned to give her the book at this lookout in Stillwater. The last page was where he asked, “will you marry me?”

Of course, she said YES! and after tears and the shock coming down we headed to downtown Stillwater for some photos! What a gorgeous evening it was!

I just love being a proposal photographer!  Surprise engagement and proposal sessions are so exciting!  I love being able to capture something so intimate and personal for the people involved.  It can sometimes feel like everything is happening at once during a proposal, so it’s incredible to be able to look back at the moment later from the outside and see the pure joy and happiness on both of your faces.  And it is so much fun to let that love bleed into the engagement session afterward.  It gives the engagement session a little extra emotion, having the excitement carry over.  If you’re looking to make popping the question extra special, think about hiring a proposal photographer!  I would love to be a part of this special moment with you and capture all of the emotions the day brings.
