Richmond Belle Isle Proposal Photography

July 30, 2019

As you probably know, I LOVE proposals and it was fun making it out to Richmond to capture this one! Golu and Manan met through mutual friends and the first time they hung out, they had an INCREDIBLE time! They met for the first time right in the heart of Richmond at Belle Isle! He picked her up from the Richmond train station, went to Belle Isle, and accidentally even FELL into the water haha! They walked around the streets of Richmond, had amazing food and spent time at Brown’s Island. Such an iconic first date in Richmond 🙂

From their first date, they grew super close! Their favorite kind of date night is a simple one, staying in, cooking a nice savory meal together for dinner and then ending the night on a sweet note with dessert! They’ve been around the world to Iceland together and hope to make it out even further to the beautiful Darjeeling, where Golu is from, later this year! But wherever they go, they’ll go together!

It was such an honor to be a part of Golu & Manan’s proposal! I got to Belle Isle bright and early and brought along Naveen to help with my cover haha! Manan gave Golu a scrapbook of memories from the years they’ve been together and then got down on one knee and she said YES!!! They celebrated with their friends and families right after which was super sweet! They went back for a quick change of clothes before we got to capture some super cute pictures of the two of them celebrating their big day at Belle Isle and around Richmond!

Golu & Manan, congratulations!!! I’m SO glad I got to be a part of the whole plan and I wish you two the very best as you plan out your wedding and your next adventure together!
