I spoke with Nick a couple months before the Fourth Of July weekend summertime proposal photos and engagement photos he secured my services for. Nick met Darielle over two years ago through mutual friends, and their relationship has been a catharsis for both of them, as nature intended. The couple lives in New Jersey, as do their families, although at first, I had no idea I was going to meet the entire crew! One thing I love about proposal photography is the element of surprise, and seeing how creative the guy can get. Nick rose to the occasion and surprised Darielle beyond what she could have dreamt. The proposal took place in front of The Parthenon at Centennial Park. A musician was even hired play guitar as Nick proposed, and then both of their families surprised them immediately after. All unbeknownst to Darielle!
It was a rare occasion in Nashville that in early July, the humidity and heat weren’t unbearable, but the gods were in their favor indeed! Another surprise Nick planned with me, was for the couple to do engagement photos after they had a chance to visit with family and digest that amazing surprise. Indeed this was a pleasure, and I am happy Nick and Darielle, and their families enjoyed their weekend in Nashville. Thankfully post-pandemic when we can all let our masks and guards down. It was worth the wait. Wishing this fabulous New Jersey couple the deepest congratulations! I hope you’ve enjoyed these lovely Summertime proposal photos and engagement photos!
