A Surprise Military Proposal | Kade & Lauren

A Surprise Military Proposal | Kade & Lauren

It was months ago when we started planning this styled photo shoot.  We were SO excited because we were going to add a new member to the Love Story Studios team – Megan!  She not only has lots of experience, is so wonderful and talented at what she does, but she is also a genuinely nice person and great friend! Any couple would be lucky to have her capture their day!

While looking for models for Megan to shoot to add to her portfolio on the Love Story Studios website, Ryan reached out to his cousin Kade’s girlfriend Lauren.  Kade was away at the time training to become a Marine and we thought this shoot would be perfect for them to have photos done together after Kade graduated!  Little did we know what was going to happen…

The morning before the shoot, Ryan received a text from Kade letting him know that he bought a RING (!!!!) and wanted to propose to Lauren the day of the shoot!  We knew at that moment that this would be one EPIC day!!

A little backstory about Lauren and Kade, as told by Lauren :

“Kade and I met my sophomore year of high school during lunch. We instantly became best friends and a year later we started dating. I fell in love with his personality and that bright smile of his and those adorable dimples. He always knew how to make me laugh and always made me feel special. I knew from the very beginning that he was my soulmate. I loved how he immediately became close with my family and cared for them as his own. Over the past three years we have grown as a couple and into the mature and loving adults that we are today.”

Thank you to everyone involved in making this day and moment possible!
