A Surprise Proposal and a Maternity Session: Capturing Mari and Julian’s Love Story

Photographing a couple’s journey into parenthood is always a memorable experience, but when Julian decided to surprise his beautiful partner, Mari, with a proposal right before their maternity portrait session, it elevated the occasion to an unforgettable one.

The day began like any other photo session. We had chosen a sophisticated dark grey background, intending to capture Mari and Julian’s story against this subtly elegant backdrop. But, unbeknownst to Mari, Julian had a special surprise in store.

Before the session officially began, Julian got down on one knee, presenting a glittering ring to a very surprised Mari. This intimate and life-altering moment was shared in the privacy of their company, with the soft murmur of our studio as the backdrop. As Mari tearfully said yes, we were privileged to capture the surprise, joy, and love etched on both of their faces, preserving this precious moment for eternity.

Following this beautiful surprise, Mari and Julian were simply radiant. Clothed in a sleek black ensemble, their love and joy were tangible as we embarked on the maternity portrait session. Mari, her cheeks still flushed from the proposal, wore a long-sleeved black dress that lovingly showcased her beautiful pregnancy. Julian, her newly-minted fiancé, wore a matching black shirt and pants, making the images look undeniably classy and elegant.

Next, we captured Mari in the elegant Vanessa Gown. The gown’s flowing fabric enveloped her figure beautifully, perfectly capturing the serenity and grace that she exuded. This series of portraits, interwoven with the joy of their recent engagement, radiated an added layer of love and anticipation.

Their bond, now officially set to be solidified in marriage, was evident in their shared glances and sweet interactions. Every captured image reflected their profound love for each other, a love that was set to welcome a new life into their world.

The entire session was an emotional and joyous journey, an honor for us to be a part of. The joy of their engagement, combined with the anticipation of welcoming their little one, was a potent blend of love and excitement that translated beautifully in the pictures.
