Hi, we're Hunter and Sarah, a husband-and-wife, luxury wedding photography team. We’re also educators, helping other photographers build profitable and sustainable photography businesses.
“NO!!” Those were Sonia’s first words to Jesse when he first got down on one knee. Hunter and I’s hearts would have frozen if we weren’t already expecting this. After being the surprise proposal photographers for more than a dozen proposals in the last couple years, we know that by “No!”, she really means “No way! I can’t believe this is happening! I’m so overwhelmed with emotion that the first thing that comes into my mind is to shout ‘NO’ at the top of my lungs! But I really mean YES!” 😂
But of course, Sonia was shouting “Yes!” and embracing her new fiancé Jesse just a few seconds later. And even when we transitioned into an engagement mini-session to capture a few portraits of them, Sonia was still half in shock. Even though Jesse had told Hunter and I while we were planning that she may be expecting the proposal, he clearly caught her by surprise!
It was such a pleasure to share this special moment with you two this past weekend! Sonia, the way you laughed and covered your face at times showed us how genuinely overwhelmed with joy you were! And Jesse, you did such a fantastic job pulling this day off – fake picnic and all! We hope that you won’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything else, and that you’ll stay in touch throughout this season of engagement 😊
