This Rooftop Styled Shoot Turned Into a Real-Life Proposal

How do you plan a surprise proposal for the love of your life without them knowing? Modeling for a styled shoot turned romantic engagement is one incredible way of doing so!

Sydney worked with photographer Sara Toki to curate the ultimate setting for him to propose to his love of seven years, Kyle.

With the warmth of the sun glowing behind them on the rooftop, the atmosphere was so romantic. Once Kyle discovered what was happening, his reaction was so pure and joyful!

“I turned around and he was on one knee and didn’t register at first. Then when I realized what was going on, I was speechless! I felt like I had entered a fairytale and everything was right,” says Kyle, with Sydney recalling, “I was completely nervous and hoped Kyle didn’t figure out the plan. I also hoped Kyle loved the ring.”

A white gold band with emerald cut diamonds and a suspension setting was placed upon Kyle’s finger; the exact ring he had dreamed of. To conclude the day, the two popped champagne and posed for the prettiest golden hour portraits. It really is all sorts of stunning!
