Goell and Kevin share a beautiful home in an up-coming area of Spryfield. Kevin works for several weeks at a time in Alberta, and Goell stays home with their two beautiful children. I visited them on Saturday Morning under the guise of a family portrait photogrpaher. What Kevin didn't realize was that I was there for another, more exciting reason.
After rummaging through my equipment and setting up a bit, Goell excused herself and her two daughters to change for the shoot. They told Kevin they had a surprise for him and that he had to close his eyes.
They arranged themselves just so in the living room wearing their custom T-shirts.
...and had Kevin open his eyes.
Needless to say, his reaction was epic, and he said Yes!
Uh, but wait... There's more! Will you marry me.....
Flabbergasted and caught completely off guard, Kevin was led outside where the whole family was waiting for his response! Smiles, hugs and cheers all around!
"....Had NO idea!!"
We did a couple of quick family portraits and I was on my way. I had a wedding to prepare to shoot, and Kevin and Goell had to get to the hotel to start getting ready!
This was by far the most nervous I've ever been on any photo shoot. The truth is though, I'd done the hard part, now all I had to do was go shoot their wedding! Those photos and their story are coming up in "Surprise Wedding - Part 2"!
