I’ll just start with the good part and let ya know she said, “Yes!!”

Now, rewind a bit to Sam’s mom contacting me about her son who was looking for a photographer to photograph his proposal to his then girlfriend, Melissa. They were traveling to Las Vegas and he wanted it to be super special. Well, if you know me, you know I love proposals, so of course I was so ready to chat with Sam and go over logistics together.

Sam told me his ideas and I worked with him on making sure we incorporated them into the plan. He wanted to have the Bellagio Fountains so we made sure to go over there after he proposed, as the grand finale! Come proposal day, everything turned out perfectly and Melissa was about to get the best surprise of her life! I absolutely loved Sam + Melissa! They were a ton of fun to hang out with and I’m so happy for them and their new life together!



Las Vegas Surprise Proposal Charles + Elyssa

Proposals are quickly becoming one of my favorite moments to document!  The excitement and planning leading up to it, the gush of emotions that follow, the pure joy and happiness at that moment.  These are all the things that I love and live for. 

So, gentlemen, when you're planning to propose to the woman of your dreams, you really need to work with a photographer, preferable me (wink, wink!), to help bring your ideas to life with suggestions on locations, time of day, logistics, and so on! Believe me, it will be so worth having that moment documented professionally! I pinky promise!!

Charles contacted me just a few days before he was planning to propose to Elyssa.  They were coming to Vegas from Canada for vacation and he wanted to get it right! This was Charles' first trip to Vegas, so he needed some ideas, which I was more than happy to provide! We settled on the location and then Charles had to work hard to convince Elyssa to get ready for their night out a little earlier than planned. Luckily, he made it work and pulled off an epic surprise proposal! Just look at these images!!! 

Once I introduced myself and Charles explained how he'd been planning this for a bit, we took a walk around the strip to get some more epic images of the newly-engaged love birds! I just love how Elyssa was so excited to share the news with her mom, she had to FaceTime her right then and there! It was my 2nd favorite moment of the evening!!! 

We hadn't planned on walking by the Bellagio fountains as they were about to start, but it worked out perfectly! Maybe it was a sign of how wonderful the day had turned out to be! 

We ended with a few nighttime images that showed off all the lights of the strip and lots more kisses!! Congratulations, Elyssa and Charles!  XO - Jessie
