Back in December 2014, a friend had contacted me about getting some special proposal pictures of her daughter, who also happens to be a friend of mine! I was so overjoyed, I had never shot a proposal before and I knew it had to be secretive. The week before Courtney's arrival from school, I had gone to her home where the proposal would take place and planned out with the help of her parents!
When the day finally came, I drove over with my assistant (who is also my sister haha!) and was ushered in by Courtney's mother since Kyle's plan was being carried out. I hid in the laundry room where there happened to be a window that I could look out and take pictures from. At this point, the sun was setting and I was hoping that there would be enough light to capture this! Kyle started out by showing Courtney a blanket he got for her with her favorite animal, the elephant! After that, they relaxed by the bonfire and Kyle started telling Courtney of how much he loved her and everything he was grateful for. I could tell she was getting excited! Then he told her to close her eyes and pulled out a sign he made himself! It was adorable!!!! Oh my goodness! Once he told her to open her eyes, she had the biggest smile on her face!! Courtney's family was watching the entire thing and cheered once he showed her the ring. It was the cutest thing I had ever witness, they were so in love!! <3 <3 <3
Courtney's brother had also planned something extremely special when she said yes. Right as I came out from the house to get closer shots, fireworks were suddenly shot in the sky! I was so surprised and so was Courtney! After the proposal, they walked back into the house where I captured everyone celebrating together. It was amazing and I wish them the very best! I know already that the two will be moving to Dallas together in October where they will start their new adventure together!!! <3
