Leah + Brayden
This proposal was extra special to photographer, Skylar Rain Photography, because Leah is her cousin! She captured Leah + Brayden’s sweet, family-filled proposal in Clovis, New Mexico in such a beautiful way.
Leah had been told that here parents were hosting a small family dinner since some family was in town. When Leah arrived at her parents’ house Brayden went out to walk with her to the barn where the food was grilling. The barn door was closed, so he knocked on it. The barn door raised up and Leah was staring at her family and friends on the other side. She turned around and Brayden was on one knee. Evidently she said yes!
Brayden planned for his family, Leah’s family, and their friends to be there. Everyone arrived early and parked their cars on the other side of the barn, so that Leah didn’t get suspicious when she arrived. While Leah was getting ready earlier that day for dinner, her sister and two girlfriends were with her. Leah was picking out a t-shirt and shorts to wear for the evening. Luckily, one of her girlfriends stepped in and helped put together the shorts and blazer combo she ended up wearing! After they made their rounds of hugs with family and friends, I took Brayden and Leah beside the barn for golden hour photos. Not only did we get perfect sunset photos, it also gave Brayden and Leah some privacy to soak in the moment together.
