Norfolk Engagement Photographer
Surprise Proposal at the Hague
On a cold, windy winter day in Norfolk, by the locks of love over the Hague River, he proposed.
She said yes.
Oh course this was all carefully planned ahead of time, and I was ecstatic to be a part of the behind the scenes! Liz was totally surprised and, as you can tell by the smiles and kisses, she was thrilled to say yes!
Jake was so eager and delighted to plan this big surprise! I had a blast working with him to make sure Liz was utterly unaware of the impending excitement we had in store. Liz is a med student at EVMS, and Jake is in the Army. He planned a weekend trip into town to visit, and set up a dinner out, like he normally did for the two of them. Since it was a reasonable walk from her apartment to one of their favorite restaurants, we decided the bridge across the Hague was a perfect spot to pop the question. This bridge is the one adorned with "Locks of Love." These locks are inscribed with the initials of lovers and locked onto the iron bridge by couples as a symbol that their love cannot be broken. Pretty romantic right?
After the shock and giggles subsided a bit, we spent some time taking a few shots around the Hague and Chrysler Museum. They are pretty adorable together don't you think?
It was a joy to meet these two lovely souls and be part of such an exciting day in their love story!
Congratulations Liz and Jake! Happy wedding planning!!
