Recently, I received a call about a surprise proposal, Kurt wanted to discuss surprising his girlfriend Mattea with a helicopter tour and proposal mid air (that ring!) He pulled his surprise proposal off like a pro, she had no idea! When we arrived at Seattle Heli Tours I told her this trip was a birthday present and then offered to take their photo in front of the helicopter. I was positive she’d see right through me and I would give the surprise away. I rambled on about wanting scenery photos and whatever else, in my awkward nervousness as I had been preoccupied by the actual flight the entire day! Not as scary as I thought once we were in the air! Big props to our pilot who put me at ease immediately!
It was a beautiful day, perfect for flying. Kurt decided he wanted to propose while flying over their home, I think it’s pretty obvious she said yes! We flew over Bellevue, downtown Seattle, down the waterfront, and even circled around the Space Needle. We seen the Ballard Locks, Golden Gardens park and the stadiums, which was fun because they were heading to the Mariners game after the flight! We watched them practice as we flew over, very cool!
Congratulations to the newly engaged and wonderfully sweet Kurt & Mattea! Meeting you both and capturing this moment was truly amazing.Lauren is an engagement, proposal, and wedding photographer serving Seattle, Tacoma and the surrounding areas.
