Kim and Joe | Laurita Winery Surprise Propsal
Fun fact…of the six proposals I’ve had the honor of capturing, three of them happened at Laurita Winery. It’s always a cool place to visit and capture memories for my clients!
Joe found me by searching Google for photographers near Laurita Winery and messaged me. After talking he decided I was the right guy to capture his special moment. I went up to the winery and did a video chat with Joe to show him some suggested locations. We found our spot and planned out all the details.
Joe took Kim to Laurita for some wine and outdoor dining and I camped out at the spot. I was SO nervous as Joe walked up with Kim. My wife joined me for this to help with my gear, so I was casually talking with her when Joe walked by with Kim…but there was a snag. At the last minute two girls decided to take selfies of themselves in the spot! So Joe kept walking. I could hear Kim (slightly tipsy) ask why they’re just walking around and he said to take photos of the property haha!
After the selfie girls left, Joe walked Kim back to the spot and pointed to the area behind her. Kim turned around to see what he was talking about, Joe took out the ring, got on one knee and when Kim turned around, she just cried. She cried for a minute while Joe was on one knee before saying yes!
Kim cried, they hugged, kissed, cried more and called some loved ones before we took some photos out in the vineyard. It was such an awesome moment and it was an honor to capture it for them!
Congrats Kim and Joe! Here are some of my favorites 🙂
