The Engagement Story of Kylee & Joey | Bloomington Engagement Photography

This session is one that I won’t forget for years to come and I’m sure Joey and Kylee won’t be forgetting it any time soon either!

This session was a little bit different than your typical engagement session. For this session I traveled to Bloomington to photograph the actual proposal. I’ve photographed actual proposals before, but never one where the bride knew who I was. I’m good friends with this couple, so if the bride saw me she would have known something was up! The groom and I carefully coordinated everything – timing, location, and even music. Everything went off without a hitch! It was a touching moment and I’m so glad I was there to capture it. They will have these pictures to remember this perfect moment for their entire lives. How precious is that!

After the proposal we took some engagement pictures…

How cute are these signs? This groom thought of everything… he purchased these signs on Etsy before he popped the question.

He Asked - She Said Yes!

Not only did he pick out some fun signs but he also picked out a breathtaking ring…

After the engagement and engagement pictures there were still more surprises! Joey had arranged all their friends and family together to celebrate at a bar in Bloomington.

I think Kylee’s reaction here was priceless!

Engagement Surprise

To top off the surprise, Kylee’s mom (who doesn’t live in the state) was hiding to surprise Kylee one more time.
