Sweet Christmas surprise captured during airport engagement session

Lea Ballard + Christopher Sanford | Mar 11, 2017

Lea and Chris met in high school after Chris mom passed away and he moved to Denver to live with his uncle. Chris started working at the same restaurant as Lea and they quickly became friends. One thing led to another and he decided to ask her out (their first date was at Brixx pizza followed by a movie).

The proposal story was so perfect.

“I’m the type of person who can be oblivious to simple stuff,” said Lea. “Chris placed the ring on the Christmas tree the same week we decorated it.”

Yet, out of all the times she looked at the tree she never once noticed it. About a week before Christmas, Chris told her to look on the tree for her present (even though he had taken it off at this point). After searching up and down the tree, Lea turned around to find Chris on one knee (adorable!!).

We love their engagement shoot at the local airport because it’s just so fun and different! Check it out below for inspiration.
