Surprise Proposal in Haddonfield, NJ | NJ Proposal Photographer

Drew + Sara were having a pretty dang good 2020, even with a pandemic in full swing. They bought a house, adopted a dog, and now they can check off getting engaged too! Drew reached out to me about proposing to Sara outside the house they bought together, which is truly one of the sweetest gestures. Buying a house together is a huge step, and it becomes the place you call home together. What better way to commemorate that than with engagement photos right in your front yard? Drew + Sara’s surprise proposal in Haddonfield is the cutest testament to their future.

I hid behind a tree across the street, which is probably pretty creepy for the neighbors to see. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t check periodically for cops, I really thought someone would end up calling them on me haha! Thankfully that didn’t happen, and I finally spotted Drew and Sara leaving their house. Drew waited until they were just a few feet from their car, got Sara to turn around, and he dropped to one knee to propose. She said and I quote, ” I knew he was acting weird!”

Can you blame the guy?? Proposing to the love of your life is a huge deal, and the nerves are REAL. Drew did a phenomenal job keeping it a secret and coordinating with me! We did a few fun engagement photos around their yard, complete with their sweet rescue pup! I can’t thank them enough for having me photograph this huge moment, I loved it!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!

"Speechless."

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
