This was another experience altogether. As women, we could not help but tear up and even get a few butterflies in our stomachs as we watched this unfold. William had thoroughly explained to us his plan to propose to Katie during the shoot, and when he mentioned it would be with a kite, there was some squealing going on on our end… Somehow, because it was meant to be, the entire afternoon progressed naturally and perfectly. Katie had no idea what her fate held, and yet everyone around her knew that this would be THE happiest day of her life. We had planned with William cues for us to know the thereabouts of when he was going to go down on one knee. He explained he was going to tie the ring on the kite, which they would then fly, and then Katie would see the ring. As amazing as that plan sounded, there seemed to be too many little factors that could have not gone according to plan. Despite my doubts and crossed fingers, William pulled it ALL off PERFECTLY. The kite flew easily and swiftly in the perfect blue sky as they held the spool together; Katie ran the kite back and forth without noticing the ring until the very wonderful moment where William kneeled down to ask her to be with him forever. Witnessing and CAPTURING such an amazing and meaningful moment in a person’s life, left both Christine and I feeling so FORTUNATE about what we do. What we noticed as outsiders, is that the combination of the wide open lush field, timing, reactions, and the perfect shades of the sunset– could not have been more magical
William, you are the bravest man! Katie, you are so fortunate to have such a romantic man on your side forever– you two are beautiful. We have no words to thank you for letting us witness this moment.
