Let me introduce two of my favourite people, Sam and Gabby! I was blessed to capture their SURPRISE engagement!
Sam had planned and prepared for this day for quite some time. Together for over 4 years, this day had been VERY anticipated. When Sam asked me to be a part of capturing their engagement I was so honoured and thrilled to do so.
You see, I've known sweet little Gabby since public school. Since then she has grown into such an incredible women! She has babysat my kids for years, become like a little sister to me and a dear friend. I have loved having a front row seat to God's faithfulness in her and Sam's life. They have gone from high school sweethearts to soon to be husband and wife.
Ok, so get to the good stuff already!! THIS was the proposal of all proposals! Like better than The Bachelorette proposals. True fact, my husband met us afterwards and actually apologized to me for our engagement. :) I spent the evening with Gabby "testing a new location for clients" and she obliged. I dragged her from location to location awaiting to receive THE text from Sam that he was ready.
This is where it gets really, really good! We get to the final location and wander down the path. It's getting dark and Gabby is greeted by one single red rose followed by candles in mason jars, strung up between trees.
I stepped back, kept my distance and Gabby was greeted with hundreds of candles, rose petals, and one handsome young man waiting nervously with 12 long-stem red roses, and a very important question to ask. How did I get to be so lucky to have a front row seat to this love?
Seriously, ^ THIS moment, this look, unforgettable!
And of course I have to include a few of my girl Gabby "testing locations" with me! :)
