Most days when my phone rings and I don’t recognize the number I just let it go to voicemail. But for some reason, this time I picked up and I’m SO glad I did.
On the other end was Sam. He was looking for a photographer to capture his surprise proposal to his long-time girlfriend. Her one request when he was ready to ask for her hand was that he have someone where to capture it, and I was honored to be that person!
This was my second proposal to shoot but it was definitely the most elaborate. Sam and Alaina are High School sweethearts and when he first told her he loved her they were standing on a dock at Lake Grapevine. So, it only seemed fitting that he return to that same spot to ask her to marry him. Awww!
About a week prior to the big day, I met Sam at the dock to finalize plans and check out the location. It was gorgeous and I knew it was going to be amazing. I couldn’t wait!
When the proposal day arrived I could tell that Sam was nervous. He was relying on friends to help keep his secret while getting Alaina to the lake without suspicion. As the car pulled up to the dock and Alaina got out she was immediately in tears. The surprise had worked!
She made her way down the dock, passing images of the two of them through out their time together…and ending in a circle of rose petals and candles with Sam at the center.
With the sun setting behind them, Sam got down on one knee and asked Alaina to marry him.
She said YES!
Congratulations Sam + Alaina!
