Volksgarten, Vienna | A Surprise Wedding Proposal

Vienna is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe. And a couple of weeks before spending their vacation in romantic Vienna, Habib contacted me telling me that he was going to ask his girlfriend Gaelle to marry him and that he wanted me to capture it on film. After a few days of going back forth via email, planning and plotting the best spot and time to capture it, we had nailed down all the details. Habib was going to take Gaelle to the opera, but before going, he was going to suggest a stroll through Volksgarten and then, unexpectedly, he was going to get down on one knee and pop the question (insert girly sighs here).
I arrived earlier than the appointed time just to be certain I wouldn't miss them and so I could capture some of the scenes in which Habib was going to ask Gaelle. The day or spot couldn't have been more perfect. The weather was divine, the flowers were in bloom, the majority of the tourists had disappeared, and a guitar duet was playing in the background. Habib couldn't have planned a better time or day to have a surprise wedding proposal.
I spotted them walking in and followed discreetly behind while they walked up the paths of the garden. Once Habib arrived to the designated spot I got a little closer and watched a significant chapter of their love story unfold before me. It was amazing and I definitely got a little teary eyed. Here is Habib and Gaelle's surprise engagement; major congratulations to you both.
