Jena + Kurt – Proposal | Ligonier Engagement Photographer

I typically try not to write anything about my shoots, but it’s hard to resist with this one. This is my best friend, Jena and her boyfriend (at the time!) Kurt. Since I’ve started going full force into photography, Jena has ALWAYS wanted me to capture her getting engaged- even if it mean’t hiding in the trees with camo.. thankfully I didn’t have to hide OR wear camo to  be able capture this proposal. Kurt messaged me a few weeks ago asking if I’d be there when he asked Jena to marry him.. OF COURSE I’d be there!!!!  We decided to have me ask Jena if she and Kurt would be interested in being models for me while I figured out “new settings and poses”, little did she know that this shoot would change their lives.. We went around Ligonier shooting in different locations until we came to the center of “the Diamond” where Kurt dropped to one knee and asked Jena to marry him. Not  only did she get photos, a fiancé, a GORGEOUS ring but he also surprised her with a cello!

To Jena + Kurt: I couldn’t be happier for the two of you and wish you guys nothing but the best!

Note: It was really hard for me to keep this a secret and even harder to hold back my tears of joy while shooting! Enjoy!!
