She had 6 simple rules:
1) Ask for permission
2) Make it a complete surprise
3) Use her full name
4) Get down on one knee
5) Have someone catch it on camera
6) Make sure her nails were done.
When we went out with Landon and Airica last week we thought it was going to be for a maternity session. There was beautiful evening light and we enjoyed capturing Landon and Airica’s excitement in preparation for parenthood. Everything was going according to plan. That is, until Landon pulled out a ring, dropped to one knee and asked Airica to spend the rest of her life with him!
Needless to say, this was an amazing twist. Landon pulled it off perfectly – he even managed to keep it a secret right up until he pulled the ring out.
These two had planned an outfit change so that they could wear some clothing from their favourite baseball team (the Toronto Blue Jays). We had just stopped to get ready to change and when Landon went into his bag to pull out what we thought was going to be another outfit, he came back with a ring box. We figured it out pretty quickly and Tracey started running backwards to make sure she gave them some space, and to frame the perfect shot. What a Moment!!!
To be fair, Landon really made our job super easy for the rest of the session, because from that point on both of them couldn’t stop smiling! Or perhaps BEAMING is a better way to put it!
Congratulations to Landon and Airica, we can’t wait to see what life has in store for both of you as you plan for a new baby and also you’re wedding!
