Unforgettable Proposal and Engagement Photos with Allie and Brandon

We are so excited to share some proposal photos from a one-of-a-kind session that took place back in February. Brandon and Allie are proud Erie community members ready to commit their lives to each other. We loved Brandon’s elaborate plan to pop the Big Question and felt privileged to capture the moment on camera.

Operation Perfect Proposal Photos

The location: Bayfront Convention Center. Target: Allie. Codeword: Will you marry me?

Brandon is the marketing manager for Erie Events by day but a sneaky romantic by night. He set up his Bachelor-themed proposal at the Bayfront Convention Center. Allie’s history of modeling for Brandon’s company meant that an invitation for a photo shoot didn’t raise any red flags. But when she arrived, she found red roses.

Chris Harrison, host of the hit TV show The Bachelor, made a virtual appearance via Brandon’s laptop via the video-sharing site Cameo. Using the website, Brandon was able to secure a short clip of Harrison welcoming Allie, finally giving her a clue as to what was really going on. When Allie finished viewing her greeting, she turned to see Brandon on one knee.

After Brandon’s covert operation was pulled off, our work began. We had a blast capturing engagement photos of the happy couple at two additional, gorgeous locations.

The Engagement Photo Session

First Presbyterian Church of the Covenant

Built in 1929, the First Presbyterian Church of the Covenant in Erie comes equipped with beautiful gothic architecture and endless photo-ops. Stained glass, classic brick, and stunning natural features resulted in pictures as bright as Allie and Brandon’s future together.

Modern Tool Square

The Modern Tool Square was our next stop. We had so much fun capturing couple amidst the nature and stunning architecture. Nothing helps love shine like natural lighting, and we would like to think that the Square’s flower selection would make Chris Harrison proud.
