linsey & jeff.

we had the absolute pleasure of being asked to photograph a surprise proposal. robbie and i hid in the bushes and did our best to stay out of sight πŸ™‚

jeff brought linsey to the IMA and told her he wanted to look for some furniture from the lilly house store, it was just a quick stop and then they were going to head downtown for dinner.

linsey just got a new job and jeff wanted to give her something to remember this big milestone, so he gave her a tiffany necklance. engraved on the back of the charm was “will you marry me?” goosebumps, right?! πŸ™‚

so she got a great necklace AND a ring. fun stuff. oh, and the ring box was in his sock. cute.

congrats you guys…thanks so much for letting us be a part of this special time!

Anthony - Great stuff! This is Anthony from the Harrison/Workman wedding. I went to Disney and proposed there and had their photographers get me in the act. I feel fortunate to have been able to capture her reaction forever. I know these two will cherish these awesome photos for many years to come!

PS More people need to have sneaky photographers photograph their proposals πŸ˜‰

alex & christian.

robbie and i kind ofΒ  adore the way that these two look at each other. meet alex & christian. we had an entire morning of fun with these two. since it was an out of town session for us, we put them up to the job of finding some cool locations to shoot in…they did NOT disappoint. in fact, we’re going to offer them jobs to do all of our location scouting from now on!! but honestly, they picked out PERFECT places.

Β  they’re getting married in a few weeks and we CAN NOT wait to see these two again, get more images of them and see all the details that will go into making their day “them”.

alex & chris are the kind of people that are good to have in your life, and we’re excited that we’re able to call them “our friends”.
