Surprise Proposal at the Nashville Zoo

We LOVE surprise proposals, they are just so much fun, and feel so special to be a part of! It’s like being in on a big secret, and sometimes feels like being a secret agent, haha! So when Sunny wrote us about having us photograph his proposal to Courtney, we were stoked. Then he said it was going to be at the zoo, and that just took it to a whole other level. We were REALLY excited!! 

After some chatting, we got the plans all in place. We would all go on a private tour “behind the scenes” of the zoo, and he would pop the question when we got to the Giraffes (ahh! So perfect!) It ended up being just the four of us on the tour. Of course Chuck and I had our cameras with/on us, so we just pretended to be tourists excited to take photos of the animals (surprise proposal secret agents!!). The tour guide was in on it too, so she helped us with our cover story on that too, telling us where we’d be able to get the best photos. So when we got to the giraffe “meet and greet” she led Courtney up to allow her to feed the giraffe first. We stayed back, pulled our cameras up to our face pretending to just be getting photos of the giraffes. That’s when Sunny got in place behind her, pulled the ring out of his jacket, and bent on one knee. Courtney then turned around to get more lettuce for the giraffe and instead was surprised with her love presenting her a ring. YOU GUYS. Her expression was the best!!!! I mean…just look at that smile! I dare you not to smile too when you see it. No joke, my face literally hurt the rest of the afternoon because I couldn’t stop smiling either! It was just so perfect. 

Of course she said yes. And after lots of hugs, smiles, kisses, and laughter, we continued with the rest of the tour, which was just so fun, and the energy of the rest of the day was full of happiness. 

Have I mentioned we love what we do???

Congratulations Sunny and Courtney!

Also- thanks to the Nashville Zoo for being so awesome, and assisting in us getting the perfect shots!
