Leesburg Virginia engagement portraits at 48 Fields
This wasn’t just going to be any engagement session when I met up with Brianna and Grant. In the few days leading up to it I received a text message from Grant letting me know that at some point he’d be re-proposing to Brianna with her dream engagement ring, and he wanted to make sure I captured her reaction. A separate text from Brianna’s mom let me know that I should probably try to get as many close up shots as possible in the beginning because once that ring came out all bets were off that Brianna wouldn’t tear up and ruin her makeup!
When it came time for photos though, the clouds had rolled in and light rain drops started to fall. I kept wishing the rain away as we drove out to 48 Fields, but by the time we had arrived nothing had changed. I knew that ring was coming, I knew Grant was probably anxious about it, and I knew that we all probably didn’t want to reschedule. Luckily we all agreed to push through the raindrops and they fortunately stayed pretty light until the point when we were wrapping up anyway.
Brianna and Grant had brought along a few props to use in the photos and, in order to work in the ring, Grant had told Brianna in advance that he wanted to pretend to propose again at some point since there were no photos of the actual proposal. So he asked her for her ring back to put into the box when the time came, but he secretly swapped in the new surprise ring before dropping down to one knee again. I think it’s safe to say that it was indeed a surprise!
Enjoy some of the highlights from my time together with Brianna and Grant!
