This time of year, we are deep into proposal season, and I am here for it! I LOVE being a part of any surprise, and helping someone plan the moment to ask their partner the most important question of their life is such an honor! It’s pretty fun that I get to hide in the bushes and photograph the entire thing, too!
Last week, Eric proposed to Gracie and it was absolutely perfect! He led her to this beautiful spot on the esplanade at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC, caught her completely off guard with his sweet words and dropping to one knee, and shocked her with the gorgeous ring he chose! I adored her reaction, which was a mixture of excitement, joy, and shock. It was such an amazing few moments!
After Eric’s proposal, Gracie had the most beautiful permanent smile on her face. She had lots of questions for Eric about how he planned all of this, and I loved his secretive answers. Planning a surprise proposal like this means that a few fibs need to be told along the way!
While we walked around the estate and took engagement photos, the amount of joy that Gracie and Eric were emitting was immeasurable. From dancing on the esplanade to kissing on the balcony, and from holding hands on the south terrace to showing off the beautiful new ring in front of the house, these two were such cuties!
I truly loved capturing the love and fun they have together. Their love for one another runs very deep and is full of friendship, too. I am excited for them, and their adventures ahead!
Congratulations again, Gracie and Eric!
