On this cool evening in December, Aaron surprised Sidney with his big question on Biltmore Estate’s esplanade, after a day of exploring the house and grounds. He got down on one knee, spoke his sweet words, and gave Sidney an absolutely beautiful ring! She said “Yes!”, and her shock and excitement were contagious! With her sister excitedly standing nearby, and Aaron pointing me out and telling Sidney that I had just photographed the entire thing, it was all so beautiful! I loved every minute of it!
After Aaron’s proposal, we all walked around the estate to capture more engagement photos for them. We used areas where we could incorporate the Christmas trees and lights, like the balcony and front lawn. Sidney and Aaron loved the idea of having Christmas lights in photos, so we also captured a detailed photo of the gorgeous engagement on a leaf of a lit Christmas tree. Engagement rings and holiday lights are a perfect combination!
After that, we wandered closer to the house, so that we could capture some of the beautifully intricate architectural design in the background of some of their photos. Biltmore house is absolutely breathtaking from afar, but it is also incredibly unique in its architecture, and getting up close to that makes for a completely different view of the place.
Capturing Sidney and Aaron’s love was such an honor. It’s pure, beautiful, sweet, and uniquely theirs! Congratulations again, you two!
