These photos tell the story of surprise, excitement, joy, fun, craziness and one of a very happy, loving, tight knit family. Friedrich wanted to surprise Chalize when asking her to marry him, but he also wanted his family to share in the joy. I tried to capture the moment between them. I loved every minute of it. After he 'popped' the question and she obviously said yes, we had lots of fun with the rest of the family photos, running around, jumping up and down and just being joyful. I loved meeting this family, getting to share in their special time together and capturing some memories for them.
