It has been almost a year since this adorable surprise wedding proposal and I’m excited to finally get the chance to share it. With the help of his girlfriend’s coworkers and family, Kelby pulled off such a sweet surprise proposal for Sophia. While the rest of the school took off to enjoy Field Day, Sophia’s teammates secretly gathered Sophia’s class into the hallway outside of their classroom. Each student held up a letter to spell out “Say yes, Ms. Pierson!” Sophia’s friend spent the evening before decorating her classroom for the big moment. And on the morning of, Kelby, Sophia’s family and I snuck into that classroom to await the big moment when one of Sophia’s teacher friends would lead her back toward her hallway.
The anticipation was killing me! I love the excitement and adrenaline of photographing marriage proposals, and this one is the most elaborate I’ve photographed so far. A lot of people were involved and there were a lot of moving parts. When the time finally came and Sophia opened the door and saw her students leading the way into her classroom with that sweet sign and roses, music started playing on the school intercom.
At the end of the hallway, her friends at the end of the line motioned for her to open the door to the classroom. When she walked in, she saw her boyfriend, her parents, siblings and best friend.
After a few celebratory moments with everyone in the room, she stepped back out to the hallway that was full of her school friends and students, waiting to congratulate her.
It was such a sweet proposal!
