Saba + Zija // Ponte Vedra Engagement Photographer

I am absolutely in love with this session. It started as a maternity shoot, but turned into a surprise engagement shoot. Saba called me about a month ago wanting me to do photos of him and his girlfriend Zija. Zija was pregnant and he wanted to capture the moment. However, what he really wanted to do was put a ring on it. Oh, and did I mention, he was going to propose by having a plane fly by with a personalized, "Will you marry me sign?" in tow? It was a difficult session because every time a plane would fly around Saba and I would look at each other an then at the sky. Despite looking at the clouds, we did not give the surprise away. Zija was really shocked and she obviously said yes. I think anyone would with the size of that ring! Congratulations guys!

Note the Zales box in his pocket. And she had NO idea!

I love this sequence. He notices the plane with the sign. Then she does. Then when she turns around he's on one knee.
