Fiance jumps in his arms Franklin Square Surprise Proposal

As a company built off of celebrating love and capturing the beauty of people’s most special moments, surprise proposals are especially heartwarming for our team. We were super excited when Taras contacted us about a month ago for help in planning a surprise proposal for Nive. From the location to the lovely engagement ring he purchased, Tara was determined to make this moment really special for his significant other. J&J Studios was there to document every second of this Franklin Square surprise proposal session.

Nive and Taras Love Story

Nive and Taras have an authentic passion for helping and caring for people. Their loving nature is what led them to each other. This sweet couple met their first year in medical school where they were introduced to each other by mutual friends. “ Our friends were determined to have us meet one another because they felt like we were a perfect fit for each other because we are so similar in several different ways if that makes sense,” Taras told us during the initial consultation. 

The couple is both near the end of the residency training. For Tara 2021 will be his final year as an emergency resident at Robert Wood University Hospital in New Brunswick located in New Jersey. Nive will be finishing her internal medicine residency next year at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. As physicians working on the frontlines of the pandemic, 2020 was a really stressful year for the couple but it has brought them closer than ever. Taras wanted to start the new year off right by making Nive his fiance. 

Franklin Square Surprise Proposal Session

One of the primary goals for this surprise proposal session was to find the right location. Our team chatted with Taras for a couple of weeks about potential locations and Franklin Square in Philadelphia was the winner. Franklin City is Center City’s most beautiful playtime oasis. We planned for this proposal session to take place just after sunset around 5:20 pm when the holiday lights would be visible.

When the big moment came the couple’s favorite Coldplay Symphonic song; A Sky Full of Stars played on the loudspeaker. Our team hid several feet away so that we could capture the raw and natural emotions of the moment. Nive’s brother had a table set up with flowers and champagne. We captured the look of surprise and pure joy on Nive’s face as they arrived at the table display. When Taras got down on bended knee and popped the question, she immediately said yes and the couple shared a kiss.
