Capturing love stories like this is what I’m here for! Being able to freeze this moment for Crystal & William’s surprise proposal on Valentine’s Day was the best thing ever! These two are so in love and it truly shines through in every frame. I’m so grateful and lucky to be one of the few people who got to congratulate the newly engaged couple!
Stephanie the owner of C’ville Picnic reached out to me if I was available to photograph the surprise proposal she was planning. Of course! I had to say YES! Stephanie was one of the few reasons why I’m super obsessed with a surprise proposal – and to be given the chance to work with her again was just a blessing!
The day was so perfect, it was sunny and was just the perfect temperature. I arrived at Eastwood Farm and Winery with ample time to be able to prepare and plan how everything is going to happen with Stephanie when the couple arrive. It was really exciting seeing Stephanie again and seeing how beautiful and aesthetically pleasing her whole set up was, I knew this proposal was going to be AH-MAZING! The beautiful picnic table was set up on the covered veranda attached to the indoor tasting room at Eastwood. The balloon arch background was also super adorable – I mean can we get more red and pink from this surprise proposal?! HAHA!
Stephanie arranged everything and it was really nerve-wracking not really knowing the couple that well or talking to William before hand. But Crystal and William were so adorable and they were just the cutest with their outfit – it was mission success when Crystal told us she had no idea she will be a newly engaged after Valentine’s Day! They were both shaking after the proposal and it was so cute! They both looks so natural in front of the camera they made my job super easy! I left the vineyard smiling and my heart full of love and excitement from the both of them!
Let’s all CONGRATULATE Crystal and William!

If you are looking for a photographer that has a great personality, experienced with attention to detail, and is fun to work with, then Lyn is your person! She arrived on time and immediately began to work. She was great at directing everyone on how to pose and had great patience dealing with my chaotic family! She took numerous photos and she was able to send me sneak peaks in less than 24 hours!"

When planning a wedding it is so scary to hire vendors and have all the trust in them that they will do a good job and from the second I met Lyn Waldrop I knew she would have my best interest in mind!"
"Lyn also did an amazing job at capturing our real emotions which I am so grateful for!

She was great at communicating so I wasn’t stressed about how I should dress, and when and where to go. I’m not very comfortable in front of a camera but I’d do another shoot with her any day! She had tons of poses and a plan of what we were doing so I was at ease knowing these pictures would look beautiful."
“Lyn was SO energetic and made the experience so much more fun
