As you know, I LOVE photographing proposals! They are full of such incredible raw emotion that truly cannot be beat, and are combined with such beautiful sentiment and love. It’s always an honor to capture this intimate moment with a couple and I will never stop loving it!
For Jake’s proposal to Julie, the moody afternoon skies at Biltmore Estate in Asheville had nothing on the excitement that happened in front of my lens! Jake totally surprised Julie with his marriage proposal while they were wandering the grounds and it was amazing! I was too far away to hear his sweet words to Julie, but I was definitely within ears reach of Julie’s excited screams! It was the cutest! Passers by stopped to watch the excitement and then cheered after she said yes!
Weeks before Jake proposed he contacted me looking for an Asheville photographer and asked me to capture this special moment for them. He already knew exactly where on the estate he wanted to propose and was very ready for the date to get here! After the proposal I learned that Jake has had the ring since June, and was hiding it in his and Julie’s house the entire time! It was truly burning a hole in his pocket and he couldn’t wait to ask Julie to marry him! I’m so glad that he chose Biltmore Estate for his proposal! It was beautiful!
After the proposal we walked the gardens and estate grounds capturing photos of Julie and Jake. Throughout our entire session Julie and Jake were both beaming with big smiles and immense joy. From walking on the terrace to sitting on a bench in the walled garden, their excitement and love for one another was endless!
Congratulations Jake + Julie!
