If you were there, you would have heard me acting like a straight fool! Haha. I was cheering so loud. What a truly special moment captured here!! I was so lucky to be a part of this day.
Talk about having the best job ever! This couple’s story is just too sweet not to share. Thomas and Anel came to me wanting just a nice, casual couple’s photography session for their holiday Christmas card this year. They were so sweet to work with, and we had a blast walking through the Pagoda Gardens and the Freemason District in Downtown Norfolk. I truly love this area, it makes for the most amazing late afternoon portraits. It’s perfect for engagements and couples.
SPEAKING of engagements! We were just going along, snapping photos here and there, and towards the end of our session Thomas pulled me aside to quickly let me know he was planning on proposing to Anel! Ahh! I had to get my self together quickly because lord knows I didn’t want to be the one to totally screw it all up by acting too overly-excited. I couldn’t blow his cover! So I tried my best to play it cool. We made our way back towards the garden and let me tell you, my heart was just racing! All I could think of was “Girl, do NOT miss this shot.” Thomas gave me a very brief head-nod and I knew it was time!! He got down on one leg, and popped the question right there on the bridge! AND SHE SAID YES!
