Engagement at Rosewood Hotel Georgia
If any girl ever told you they hadn’t dreamed about their perfect proposal, they’d likely be lying! Well last week my team and I played a part in making dreams happen for two close friends of mine. A wonderfully thoughtful surprise Engagement at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia.
I am in love with Love, I never have enough of seeing this powerful bond between two people. And on this engagement shoot, let me tell ya, there was an overload of happiness, cuteness and so much Love!
Surprise Engagement Proposal
A year ago, my friend Matt told me that he would like to propose the following summer and that we had to plan something special. Can you imagine how ecstatic I was? Not only was I part of the master plan, but I’d get to shoot it as it actually happened!
But how do you prepare such a surprise, without her cluing in at all? First you need a plan – a good plan, and then you need good partners on board! We came up with the idea to have a fake collaboration shoot for our team’s portfolios for promotion purposes. I knew this would work as i’ve done shoots with Matt & Vanessa before.
A glimpse into one of many stories I told, asking Vanessa to “model” for me:
We knew we had her convinced and Rosewood Hotel Georgia opened their doors to host us on their stunning “Reflections: The Garden Terrace” (IG: @rwhotelgeorgia). Grace Sham (IG: @makeupbygracesham) took care of Vanessa’s beauty and Anthony Chopin (IG: @44thelement) took care of the videography. Thank you to Terry Tseng for the behind the scenes photos.
Capturing the moment
The whole morning was so much fun and full of emotions, just like when I’m shooting a wedding. We laughed, we smiled and we all got increasingly nervous as Matt grew more anxious.
While Vanessa was being pampered by makeup, we ran around sneaking interviews with Matt and sharing the details of how we got to this big day. Luckily, we were able to avoid a couple of close calls that would’ve totally exposed us!
We all finally breathed a teary sigh of relief when the happy couple finally embraced each other after Vanessa joyfully said YES!
I mean… how could she not?!
Please enjoy the photos and let yourselves be filled with the happiness and love vibrations we all felt that day.
