Rachel and Travis are engaged!! Travis’s surprise proposal at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC was absolutely amazing! Rachel was SO surprised, and their dog Millie was a perfect lady throughout the entire photo session!

I adored capturing this incredible moment for this beautiful couple. When Travis first contacted me to schedule this proposal photography session at Biltmore Estate, I could feel the excitement in the words of his email. I could tell that he was ready to ask Rachel his big question, and in turn, spend the rest of his life with her. Of course I also loved that he wanted to include their dog Millie in the proposal. You all know that I LOVE dogs, and having sweet Millie watch her parents get engaged, be in the middle of their proposal, and then take photos with them around Biltmore Estate sounded amazing to me!

When planning the proposal, Travis mentioned to me that Rachel loves plants, flowers, and gardens, and that he knew she would want a private setting for his proposal. With this request, I knew the perfect spot! It’s a spot on Biltmore Estate’s property that is in the Spring Garden where I am familiar with the area, but had not yet captured a proposal. It’s tucked out of the way, and guests rarely walk through this area. I have been waiting for the right couple to use this spot for their proposal, and these two were perfect for it! Since it was late fall, the area wasn’t blooming with flowers and leaves, but it was still beautiful!

As Rachel, Travis, and Millie approached the area, I stepped off to the side and pretended to take photos of the one bush that had a few fall blooms left on it. I stayed out of the way and watched out of the corner of my eye as the three of them walked onto the lawn. Travis grabbed Rachel’s hand and stopped her in the middle of the lawn, and then dropped down on one knee. Rachel was utterly surprised, and Millie sat between them and watched the entire thing from a front row seat! I heard Rachel excitedly say “Yes!” between my shutter clicks. It was beautiful and could not have been more perfect!

After the proposal, we walked deeper into Biltmore’s Gardens and into the conservatory. Since I knew that Rachel loved plants and flowers, we spent some time inside the conservatory capturing their love while surrounded by Biltmore’s curated plant beauty! We then wrapped up our session with photos in front of Biltmore house and near the Christmas trees on the front lawn.

Rachel and Travis’s super cute proposal was a ton of fun, and I am gushing over their photos still! These two are so sweet and I LOVED capturing this special time for them with their dog!
