Proposals are pretty freaking nifty. Sometimes slightly expected, but never knowing exactly when it will happen. I was thrilled when Marek contacted me saying he wanted to surprise his girlfriend Ewa with photographs of their proposal. She has dreamed of having a Pinterest like engagement captured to always remember. He wanted to do this in the exact same spot he told her he loved her three years ago. I arrived before they did and pretended to be doing a photo shoot with my second shooter. All of a sudden this awesomeness started and the amount of love shown through my lens just radiated from then out. Benona township park is this really adorable little beach area in Shelby, MI complete with an awesome river for kayaking etc. And let me tell you, the perfect place for a proposal/ mini engagement session.
He asked if she would like some tea, because that is where they went for their first date. The tea box then held an engagement ring box and well I think that’s pretty magical and insanely clever. Also her ring is just so stunning and perfect for her. As I got to know Ewa more during this session I know Marek nailed this proposal from top to bottom. I mean look at the GIF later on here. She is literally jumping for joy!!!! 😀
THIS LOVE is one of those unique loves that is just epic. Causing an epidemic of love all around. After leaving this session I felt so full in my heart and soul for days and days. Not only are Marek and Ewa incredible people but their love is incredible. The love radiated off of them the entire session. I really enjoy doing engagement sessions right after proposals. I really didn’t have to do much to get these two to show their love for each other. The hard part was separating them for a moment to get a few photographs apart.
