Surprise Proposal | Caitlan + Dominique

When our friend Dom pulled us aside and asked us if we could photograph his proposal we were overjoyed. He quickly hatched a plan, we would fake a mentor session for a photographer (Sara’s sister) and of course we would need a couple to shoot. He would volunteer them for the spot in front of the camera.

The day arrived, the “fake” engagement shoot was incredibly beautiful.. Our student was taking notes on camera settings, posing, etc.. and then he did it. He asked her on a cliff overlooking a beautiful river canyon. She had no idea it was coming.

Congratulations you two.
