The Perfect Proposal
On September 5th, I had the honor of documenting the sweetest and most elaborate proposal. With the help of his family and friends, Eric was able to pop the big question to Felicia in complete surprise. She started the day thinking that she was getting her hair and nails done as part of a promotional/marketing project for her friend. Then Eric took her out to lunch and a casual stroll at Columbia Lake. As the couple walked down near the docks, a random photographer… hahaha A.K.A. me… stopped them. I told them I was prepping for an engagement session for a couple the next day and asked if they would help me test out some shots and in return, I would send them the photos for free. Felicia was not really feeling the idea or the interruption of time with her beau and Eric didn’t help LOL… but I asked her to help support a Black owned business and she did.
Needless to say, when Eric got down on one knee, it threw Felicia all off! Her expressions, her surprise, and her excitement were so contagious! After she said “Yes” Eric walked Felicia over to the amazing picnic that was staged ahead of time… it was honestly the cutest, most picturesque and comfortable picnic I have ever seen. They enjoyed chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, roses, and each other. Oh yea... did I forget to mention the harpist?! Then we walked around the park and took more photos. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day! Eric couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day!
I wish Felicia & Eric much happiness and joy as they plan their wedding and their future together! Congratulations!!!
