Gabe + Alyssa (Surprise Proposal!)
Gabe has quickly earned a special place in our hearts. Without getting all mushy on you we'll just leave it at that. When he mentioned that he had bought an engagement ring and wanted the proposal captured, I knew we had to do something special!
Gabe and Alyssa have been together since they were 15...that's 10 years! We talked for a couple of weeks, trying to choose locations and such. Gabe thought Alyssa would like something with more of a rustic feel, so we decided to shoot in Wickenburg rather than closer to their home in the Valley. So under the disguise of giving her a birthday gift of a couple's portrait session, we planned the shoot for her birthday day of March 1st.
For the first time in my career RAIN made us cancel the shoot! I know Gabe is just dying here, wanting to propose so badly. We reschedule for two days later.
Two hours before our scheduled shoot time...it's raining again! But there's a break in the clouds and the forecast is looking good, so we are going for it!
For about 30 minutes we just act like this is a normal couple portrait session. They are seriously so cute together.
The big moment arrives and, yes, he pulls the ring box out of his shoe! I had been wondering where he was keeping it. ;)
She said yes. :)
We move right into engagement pictures.
And then the glorious sunset...
Congratulations Gabe & Alyssa! We loved capturing this moment for the two of you. May your future be richly blessed.
Beautiful pictures of such a beautiful couple! So happy for these two! Congratulations!
