It all started off with a surprise engagement proposal in the Great Hall at Sunriver Resort. Jolie + Derek knew that they would be planning a wedding in Sunriver for next year. But… Derek was waiting for the absolute perfect time to propose to Jolie when she was least expecting it. The two had hired us for a couples shoot while on their visit to Sunriver and they wanted to get a nice portrait by a fire place. So we met them in the Great Hall of Sunriver Resort. Sunriver Resort’s day of wedding coordinator Annie was so gracious to prepare the Great Hall by lighting all the fire place candles and getting a nice toasty fire started for this lovely couples arrival. Little did Jolie know that we had been planning with Derek and Sunriver resort to really capture a “surprise proposal” on this gorgeous winter morning in Central Oregon. It was such an exciting and emotional moment to have had the honor of not only witnessing but also capturing! It started off with a nice portrait by the fire… then Derek shocked Jolie by getting down on one knee!Congratulations Jolie + Derek on your engagement. We can’t wait to capture the wedding as well!!!!Following the proposal we took Jolie + Derek up for some engagement photos in the snow near Mt. Bachelor. The first thing we stumbled upon was a full rainbow and we thought it was a huge gift to be showered with a magical rainbow on such a special day!We also had a lot of fun playing in the fog!!!Like what you see?
