On Saturday afternoon Kasey thought she was just tagging along with her boyfriend to check out Bristol Harbour for a work event of his. They stepped out back to take a look at the beautiful view of Canandaigua Lake, and while Kasey was snapping a picture of the scenery with her phone, Max got down on one knee behind her. When she turned around her expression went to surprise to pure joy - obviously she said yes! Her reaction was so perfect that even I got a little teary-eyed. After they had a minute to enjoy the moment, Max pointed to where both of their families were waiting as another surprise. Somehow Kasey's smile got even bigger when she spotted them walking over to congratulate them. After all the hugging was done and the initial shock had worn off, I took some portraits of Kasey and Max together (who were all smiles). Of course I couldn't resist grabbing some shots of Kasey's gorgeous engagement ring which I absolutely LOVED - Max spend months designing it and he got it just right.
This shoot was the absolute perfect way to start off the 2014 wedding season - at the beginning of the next chapter of Kasey & Max's lives together. It's such a blessing to get to be part of people's happy moments and document them, and I'm so excited for all of the moments this season's weddings and engagement sessions will bring.
Congrats to this beautiful couple, and thanks for letting me witness this part of your story! Here are a few of my favorites from the proposal - enjoy!
