A Couple’s Session Turned Surprise Engagement Session

Gloria Brummer + Fritz Gebessler | May 26, 2017

Fritz reached out to Samantha Laffoon Photography with the idea of scheduling a couple's session for him and his girlfriend, Gloria. He told her that he wanted some new photos taken for the two of them but he also had another plan up his sleeve!

After meeting up with their fabulous photographers, Gloria and Fritz spent some time getting to know them while roaming the gardens with their adorable dog, Tito. After photographing the three of them for a bit, Samantha asked the couple to tell the other three things they love most about each other. After they shared that sweet moment, Fritz got down on one knee and asked Gloria to marry him! Both had tears in their eyes as Gloria said “yes!” They celebrated with a sweet embrace and more happy pictures. Gloria was so surprised by the sweet proposal; it was the perfect way to start the next happy chapter of their lives together!

Congratulations, Gloria and Fritz!
