Our Northampton studio recently had the pleasure of capturing a very special moment in a lovely young couple’s life! Raunds’ very own Romeo, 26-year-old Nathan Dixon, managed to capture the exact moment he popped the question to his unsuspecting girlfriend, 27-year-old Trish Neville, by pre-planning the proposal with Venture photographer, Ian Smith.
Prior to the session, Nathan had spoken to the studio and informed the team that he was planning to propose so that they could conjure up a plan together! As the photo shoot was coming to an end, Ian asked the couple if there were any other shots they wanted him to capture, at which point Nathan got down on one knee and asked a very surprised Trish if he could have her hand in marriage.
Ian said: “It was very touching to be a part of such an intimate event in the couple’s life. Nathan and I worked together to set the scene, and I think I also came in handy to offer moral support and calm his nerves!”
Following Trish’s answer, “yes, of course!”, the couple were showered in confetti and presented with a bottle of Champagne to toast to their future happiness.
Trish said: “I couldn’t believe it when Nathan proposed and I’m elated that the moment I promised to become Mrs Dixon has been captured on camera. We’re now able to not only tell the story of our proposal, but also show it to our friends and family for generations to come.”
As photographers, we’re blessed that our job enables us to meet an array of different people on a daily basis, and every so often we’re honoured enough to become a part of an extra special story like this one.
