Surprise California Proposal During Photoshoot: Hayley & Dillon

April 11, 2016

Hayley and Dillon’s proposal was an absolute dream! Their florist and photographer planned a styled shoot with only about a week’s notice. As they were making their way into a new season, their vision was to focus on the details by using bright summer florals with just the right touch of spring whimsy in a bridal gown, cakes and invitation suite.

After they met their wonderful bride model, Hayley, their focus and theme shifted towards the opportunity to share, and be part of, a special love story. Hayley had been planning on proposing to her girlfriend, Dillon, but was waiting for the right time. She asked if she could use the styled shoot to propose and the team couldn’t have been more honored to take part.

With just a few days to plan, and Dillon still totally in the dark, they had a talented group of vendors come together to create a dream day for this amazing couple. As they began the shoot, they pretended to interview Dillon for a “blog post” so they could capture responses before the proposal (it also allowed them to mic and film the couple without suspicion). The emotional responses from Dillon made everyone behind the scenes tear up and cry along with them!
