To set the mood for Valentine’s Day we are posting this amazing surprise proposal that was photographed by Emilie from AmyPunky Photography in Paris.
Here it is in Emilie’s words:”I was contacted by Court two weeks ago. He’s from Texas and he wanted me to shoot his proposal to his girlfriend, Stephanie. But he had a very specific idea of how he was going to propose: he wanted to set up a secret photo shoot, and a random meeting with an artist who would offer to draw them a portrait.
“Then, when the artist would show them the portrait, his girlfriend would discover a ring drawn on her hand and would understand what was going on.
“So, I found an artist and I organized the photo session and the meeting. When the day of the photo session arrived, I was so stressed and anxious. I didn’t want anything to go wrong and I didn’t want to ruin his proposal.
“Everything was okay: the artist showed up, the couple arrived at the Louvre Pyramid, and we started our secret photo session. I felt like a paparazzi!”
“Stephanie discovered the drawing and when she saw the ring drawn on her hand, she said: ‘Hey, are you kidding me?’ Then, Court proposed… it was such a beautiful moment to capture, especially in Paris, in front of the Pyramid of Louvre.”
What a romantic story and gorgeous photography! Thanks for sharing Emilie–we’ve been excited for this post ever since you sent us the images!
