Kevin & Amanda

Surprise proposal and maternity shoot

Hands down, one of my all-time favorite photo shoots to date. Kevin surprised his beautiful girlfriend with a proposal during their maternity shoot. He reached out to me initially just for a proposal session. As we started talking he realized the best way to pull this off would be to tell Amanda that he hired a photographer for a maternity shoot as she was about 7 months pregnant. This was a great idea as it inspired the couple to get dressed up before the shoot. Amanda even got her hair and make up done. They both looked stunning!

I always offer my clients the option to add on a flower delivery for the night of their proposal. For Kevin’s proposal he requested a bouquet of a dozen white roses. I picked them up from Ben White Florist, one of my favorite local flower shops! I got to the location early that night and I hid the roses and went to meet the couple.

We started off the shoot with some posed maternity shots and I lead them to the location where Kevin was planning to propose.

Needless to say, Amanda was completely surprised by the proposal! It was too cute to watch! After Kevin proposed we continued on with the maternity shoot. Here are some of my favorite shots from the night!

“We flew in from VA Beach for a long weekend and did a maternity/ surprise engagement photo session. Melissa was very responsive and had everything lined up prior to our arrival. As well as helped with hair and makeup appts with some great people. We wouldn’t have been able to accomplish all this without her help. We would recommend her to everyone and anyone without a doubt.”
