When Vincent contacted me about planning his proposal and mentioned he wanted to pop the question at Arrington Vineyard just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, I was all in. I adore capturing in-love couples at Arrington Vineyard. As a Nashville engagement photographer, it’s probably one of my favorite places to not only shoot at, but also spend time at…hello, wine.
Vincent and Ashley met several years ago on Bumble, and are an adorable couple. They’re both from Texas, but spending a weekend in Nashville before a long drive back to Texas. As he talked about proposing, he was clearly so excited. But as the days got closer, the nerves set in. I love hearing the nervous anticipation of a guy right before he asks one of the most life changing questions he’ll ever ask.
During their visit to Arrington Vineyard, Vincent had planned a wine tasting for the two of them. I snuck around as incognito as possible to capture a few photos. As they were finishing their final glasses of wine, I hid behind some bushes, positioned so I could see them exit the building and follow at a safe distance. Giving me a knowing wink, Vincent led Ashley down to some lower grapevines. As he got on one knee, Ashley turned around and the look on her face was perfection. She was clearly shocked and so excited. I definitely had tears in my eyes as she bent down towards her love to embrace him.
After they shared an intimate moment, Vincent slid a beautiful ring on Ashley’s finger. We then spent some time capturing some photos of them to celebrate this milestone in their lives.
Thank you, Ashley and Vincent, for allowing me to capture this time in your lives. I am so incredibly happy for you both!
