I am so excited that you're here! This is where I share my latest sessions, personal photos, and funny life stories. You'll quickly hear about my obsessive cleaning habits, my adorable pup, and probably a little something about fruit pizza (only the best food ever created). So grab a drink (something iced for me... yes, even in the winter), and scroll through the archives!

Ron & Kate | Proposal

COVER

This is such a special post for me to write!! My oldest sister is engaged! Mom, Joelle, and I drove down to Florida on Monday (15 hours, yaaaaaay), and I got to photograph Ron proposing to Kate Tuesday morning at sunrise! It was an incredibly beautiful morning. But also insanely humid. I’ll do a post later showing how terrified I was of the humidity fogging up my lenses!! AHHHH!

It was so hard keeping this a secret from Kate!! We kept saying on the drive down how weird it was that she didn’t know we were coming… And once we got to our hotel room, it was incredibly strange that we were in Florida and Kate didn’t know! 

Monday night, after we arrived, we went with Ron to scope out the Riverwalk to find the perfect spot for the proposal! And Tuesday morning, at 7am, I was in my hiding spot photographing him get down on one knee! Kate’s reaction was the best, but it was even better when she saw that we were there!!

Ron went to Kate’s house at 6am to wake her up, and gave her her first clue… To go to the Riverwalk!

Her second (and last ;) clue said “Clue two is important, for to me you’ll be bound, if you want a small hint, just turn around!”

Then he pointed me out :) (But she still didn’t figure it out because I was hiding behind a long lens!)
