Vish and Brandon are getting married… AGAIN! Brandon and Vish were married four years ago (To the date of Brandon’s surprise proposal plans!), and this time, they’re planning to go all out! (Starting with the proposal and the ring!)
Vish and Brandon met in college at a bar party after a football game. Ironically, neither of them had planned on going out that evening, but were peer pressured into it! (And thank goodness they were as they were destined to meet that night!) They were married five years ago to the date of this surprise proposal and fast forward, they are living a beautiful life with their two daughters! (Both who knew about the ring AND managed to keep the secret!) Five years ago, they weren’t able to go all out for the wedding like they had wanted to, but now is the time! Brandon says that every woman should have the big wedding experience, and they’re now going all out, planning a big, beautiful celebration for next year!
I love how these two rolled anniversary AND proposal photos into one sweet surprise session!
Brandon reached out to me back in July and let me know that he was planning to give Vish her forever ring in a vow renewal-like proposal! He wanted it to be incredibly special! We went back and forth on locations, eventually settling on the perfect, secluded yet stunning park: Sherwood Gardens! He and Vish had dinner plans to celebrate their anniversary, and to keep his cover, he let her know that they would be stopping by a special wine garden.
The day of their proposal was a little rainy, so Vish was confused when they rolled up to an empty park with no wine garden in sight. Thankfully, Brandon played it cool, and Vish didn’t notice a crazy lady hiding behind a tree with a camera. (Hi— it’s me!) Their proposal went off without a hitch, and we had the BEST time exploring Sherwood Gardens… and the rain held off the entire time! (Not going to lie… I was holding my breath, but anniversary/proposal celebrations don’t wait for rain!) Brandon and Vish are the sweetest and most genuine couple. They’re not afraid to be a little silly together, and when they look into each other’s eyes, you can tell that they feel right at home. It’s so special to spend time with these two!
Thank you for having me along to photograph your Sherwood Gardens surprise proposal, Vish and Brandon!
I can’t wait to share a sneak peek into our time together!
That hidden halo though! 😍
I’ve been spotted— time for some garden portraits!
LOVE these summer wildflowers!
