Chase & Sophie – Proposal & Engagement Photos at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN

August 31, 2022

She said yes!!

Chase reached out to me in MARCH to plan his proposal to Sophie in JULY when they were planning a trip to Indiana to spend an extended holiday weekend with family! The lengths this guy went to plan and prepare for this special moment is something to applaud and take notes on lol

Sophie was completely surprised by the proposal and was even more shocked to learn the extent of Chase’s planning! She attended Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN for a year and there is a folktale that says if a guy and a girl walk across the bridge holding hands, then they’ll get married! Well, they live in South Carolina but Chase knew that they would be in the area for the July 4 weekend to spend the holiday with family. Being the thoughtful and intentional man that he is, he starting planning this special moment MONTHS in advance and thankfully the rainy forecast held off for us just as he was proposing!

I had arrived an hour early to make sure I was set up in plenty of time in case the timeline changed at all, but they arrived EXACTLY when they were supposed to, which is quite rare in proposals lol Sophie wasn’t prepared to take photos, but she and Chase happened coordinate outfits PERFECTLY and everything worked out incredibly well!

After coordinating for 5 months, Chase’s proposal was successful and I absolutely LOVE how their photos turned out! Check out a few of my favorites below!
