New Orleans Proposal Photographer | Sculpture Garden NOMA

FILED IN: Engagement

New Orleans Proposal Photographer | Michael and Kristen

I love surprise proposals! And they don’t get better than this one, really. Michael contacted me weeks and WEEKS ago, plotting the perfect proposal for his girl. He–of course–wanted it to be perfect for her, and I was *on board* with that! We had lots of back-and-forth phone calls and video chats to come up with a plan to capture everything perfectly. Maura, over at The Sculpture Garden at NOMA, got in on the plotting, and–if I’m honest–the three of us had *way too much fun* planning this all out! 😂

The ruse: A (fictional) wedding reception for a friend who got married during quarantine.

Maura even put out a fake sign at NOMA’s entrance, directing “guests” to the right spot!

I, for one, could not *wait* to see the look on Kristen’s face when the jig was finally up!

Spoiler alert: Girlfriend did *not* disappoint.

Sometimes, for surprise proposals, the other party has a sneaking suspicion that something is up. What was EXTRA fun about this one is that Kristen legitimately had no clue whatsoever! It was so fun, watching these two wander through the Sculpture Garden, “looking” for the reception. When Michael went down on one knee, Kristen’s face was priceless! She was so shocked, and so excited.

Just after she said yes (because of course she did), Maura swooped out of the bushes with a bottle of bubbly to celebrate. After a little drinky-poo, we all headed out into the gardens to get some great portraits to commemorate the day in style. The Sculpture Garden grounds made for a STUNNING backdrop for some gorgeous engagement photos, and we had so much fun! The weather was perfect, and the love and excitement levels were *on point*!

Check out a few of my very favorite images of these two (although you KNOW it was hard to pick which ones to show off!).


And, if you’re looking for a New Orleans proposal photographer, holla at ya girl! I’m always up to hide in some bushes and be a part of some spectacular memories. ♥
