Nick’s Proposal to Joanne – SHE SAID YES!
As soon as we finished taking the call from Nick, who asked us if we could take photos of him and Joanne for their anniversary, we knew couldn’t let his offer pass us by. Nick had told us that he was also preparing a delightful surprise for his girlfriend that would change their lives forever — he was going to propose!
For us, we were very excited to accept this photo shoot. This was an amazing opportunity to have been able to capture such raw emotions of happiness and love during one of the greatest moments in the couple’s lives.
Ensuring that the surprise proposal remained a surprise was no easy feat for Nick. It took a considerable amount of effort from him to ensure that everything would go perfectly and that Joanne remained unaware of his plan as he gave us instructions on what to do as we were getting close to the Peace Bridge — the place where Nick was proposing.
We strolled around Prince’s Island Park and took some of the couple’s initial photos at the bridge where they went on their first date. We continued walking and as we were nearing the Peace Bridge, feelings of anxiousness and excitement grew in me, and most likely, for Nick as well.
As we arrived at our destination, Nick then guided Joanne to the middle of the bridge and gave her an anniversary present — a photo album that consisted of pictures that told their story, from how they met and to their life right now. With Joanne engrossed with the album, a group of their friends, who Nick asked for help, slowly crept up behind them, holding cut-outs that spelled “MARRY ME WILL YOU”
Joanne turned around and saw the sign. Tears flowed from her eyes as Nick pulled out a small box from his pocket and got down on his knee. He opened the box to reveal a beautiful ring. Nick then asked Joanne, “Will you marry me?.”
Joanne, with no hesitation, said yes.
Right before my eyes, Nick and Joan showed me that this kind of love story does not only happen in movies but also in reality.This is one photoshoot that will forever remain memorable to me, and Ian and I are eternally grateful for Joanne and Nick for allowing us to be a part of it.
