We had so much fun capturing this surprise proposal in Petite France here in Strasbourg. Photographing a proposal is one of the most stressful types of sessions for us, but despite the stress, we absolutely love capturing real emotion–surprise, excitement, and joy. This one was nothing shy of perfection. While on a river cruise along the Rhine, Mícheál + Alexandria had a 1-day stop in town, and Mícheál decided it would be the ideal place to propose to his beautiful girlfriend. All day, he carried around a Kate Spade sculpted wedding cake clutch hidden inside his backpack so he could propose with it. Caleb and I were hidden (and doing our very best to blend into the surrounding crowds) while Mícheál and Alexandria sipped on their cappuccinos at La Corde à Linge. When the waitress delivered the wedding cake purse to Alexandria, the moment was everything we could’ve hoped for. We’re pretty sure it was a day they’ll never forget.
