Seth and Macie had a gorgeous surprise proposal with the perfect Montana mountain background and I got to be a part of it!
Seth had Macie’s sisters help to plan the proposal and keep it a surprise for Macie. Macie’s sister was the one that originally reached out to me about shooting their engagement in Northwest Montana she wanted to make sure everything was “picture perfect babyyy”.
Once they were booked, Seth and I had hours of phone conversations to make sure every detail was planned out perfectly, for when he met me! This step was huge! Since he didn’t want Macie to find out that he was proposing, it was important that we had everything planned out ahead of time! To keep Macie from getting suspicious, Seth booked the session as a birthday present for her. They had already planned to drive up to Montana from Oklahoma to visit Yellowstone National Park so we worked the session into their travel schedule. After visiting Yellowstone, they drove up to the northwest corner of Montana to meet me for their shoot! We started the session in a location that had a beautiful water and mountain view in the background. The location was amazing! They really got the whole western Montana experience.
For the actual engagement, Seth requested I play ” A Party For Two” By Shania & Billy . I had Seth spin Macie and while she was spinning, he pulled out the ring and got down on one knee. It was literally PERFECT I almost started crying haha! I fully believe that Macie had no idea it was coming which made it all even more special! Of course she said “YES” lol.
A lot of work went into planning this proposal and making sure it stayed a surprise. So if you are planning a surprise proposal be patient with yourself & your photographer. There are a lot of things to navigate without your significant other knowing what is going down. You have to make sure you know exactly where the locations are(which can be hard when coming in from out of state). Where and when to meet me, what is going to happen before and after the engagement, and at what point and how you will actually propose. Thanks Seth for trusting me with your big question that will last your lifetime and CONGRATS to the badass couple that drove clear from Oklahoma for their shoot with me.
