Bri Dow convinced her husband Brandon that they had won a couples photo shoot. What he didn't know was that she was in cahoots with the photographer, Samantha Boos, to give him the surprise of a lifetime.
Dow and Boos, who had also shot their wedding, came up with an idea to have each of the parents-to-be write a few words about the other one on chalk boards so they could hold them up for a photo. While Brandon described his wife with the words, "Love, sweet, cute," her chalkboard had a slightly different message.
“My photographer and I sat down to plan the details so when we got the park he would have no clue," Dow explained to Scary Mommy. "Sam already had my board done so she just had Brandon write three nice things on his board.”
Then the spouses turned around and showed each other the boards.
Brandon's reaction is perfect. He tearfully embraced his wife.0comments
It was such a powerful moment, even Boos wasn't prepared for the response.
“Bri and I got together about a week before the shoot and did some brainstorming of how we could creatively tell him. We decided on this idea and it turned out fantastic! It was hard for her not to tell Brandon when she found out but it was well worth the wait,” Boos shared. “I almost started tearing up just watching it unfold. But its hard to photograph anything crying!”
