Jayda and Ray’s Leu Gardens Marriage Proposal
Being an Orlando proposal photographer is lot of planning and after that, a whole lot of lurking in the bushes waiting for the couple to arrive. It was a beautiful Florida day as I lurked around the gazebo of Orlando’s Leu Gardens under the pretense of taking flower photos. (Sidenote: how perfect would this gazebo be for a wedding?) Jayda texted me that she and Ray had just entered the gardens and were en route to my location.
As the couple walked up, I was intently “photographing” a plant that gave me a good view of the pathway they’d be coming up. Jayda and Ray headed into the gazebo and Jayda suggested they take a selfie, proping her phone up on one of the benches inside the gazebo. In reality, she was capturing video of the suprise marriage proposal that was about to happen! The pair moved to the center of the gazebo and after that I moved into position to capture my shot as the couple chatted with each other.
The Big Moment
Jayda snuck the ring out of her pocket, got down on one knee, and, well, you know the rest! Ray said YES! I captured more photos as the couple soaked in the moment and eventually made my presence known. And that, my friends, is just another day in the life of an Orlando proposal photographer!
See the ring? Sneaky sneaky!
I love Ray’s genuine excitement and emotion and I’m so thrilled that they’ll have these photos to remember this magical moment for the rest of their lives!
We had to walk over to one of my favorite spots in Leu Gardens to take some photos! I am absolutely obsessed with this pathway of tall trees and everytime I do a photoshoot at Leu Gardens, I take my clients there! And the location is even prettier when lit up with Christmas lights during Dazzling Nights, if you can believe it!
