I love surprise proposal shoots.
Robbie emailed me back in January about how he wanted to surprise his girlfriend, Caitlin by proposing to her during a photoshoot. The plan was that he would tell Caitlin that I had asked them to pose/model for me for a photo session.
Robbie had it all planned out. We met at Hafer Park in Edmond on Saturday morning. I had known Robbie in College, but was meeting Caitlin for the first time. She was so sweet! She seemed nervous and maybe like she knew something was up, but Robbie made her feel at ease. These two are so sweet together.
Part of the surprise was that both of their families were going to be waiting in the park to see them after the proposal. The plan was that Robbie would receive a call from his Dad around 10:30, letting him know that the families were in place. After that, he would propose. We kept strolling through the park until he got the call.
So Robbie gets the call. At this point, I'm thinking, it's time right? The plan was for Robbie to stand behind Caitlin to propose. So I ask Robbie to stand behind Caitlin, thinking it was time. When he doesn't propose, I'm desperately trying to read Robbie's mind at this point! (haha!)
So we casually keep taking photos.
Then Robbie suggests that we head towards a bench where they've taken a photo before.
She said YES! (of course! )
It was so sweet of Robbie to plan for both families to be there! I loved seeing how supportive and excited everyone was!
Congratulations Robbie + Caitlin! I wish you two the very best and the deepest blessings in your marriage! It was an honor to capture your proposal!
