This photo shoot came with a surprise! Robert and Vanessa have known each other since middle school. Ah…the glory days? Robert and Vanessa’s “glory days” together had not begun yet. After going to different high schools, the couple didn’t start dating until they were 22. After being together for five years, the couple had made many memories together throughout the time, the holidays and birthdays. When Roberts 28th birthday came up, the couple’s friend had asked if they would be her models for a photoshoot. As Vanessa has done photo shoots with her before, she didn’t think anything unusual about this request! Little did Vanessa know it was all set up just for her!
Robert and Vanessa met Adelaide of Adelaide Photography, the couple’s photographer and friend, at Venue at the Grove to provide their service as her models for the day. As the photoshoot began, Adelaide was telling the couple how to pose for her photos. After doing this for a while, Adelaide then told Robert and Vanessa to do whatever they felt right so she could capture some candid photos of the two of them. As Vanessa had Robert spin her around pretending to dance, he got down on one knee and popped the question! Taken by complete surprise, Vanessa responded with “No way!” then quickly replaced it with “yes, of course!” The surprise proposal went off without a hitch! All of Robert’s hard work paid off and he will continue to surprise Vanessa for the rest of their lives!
