When Jessica reached out to me and shared her plan to propose to Kelsey I immediately jumped on the opportunity! I have been dying inside to photograph a same sex couple as well as a surprise proposal. I mean seriously? How much better could this be?!
Just a little background on Kelsey. She is apparently quite the detective. So, hiding anything from her is mere impossible. It's so impossible that Jess had placed the ring in the spare tire of her car and drove around for weeks silently praying she wouldn't get rear-ended haha.
Jessica purchased Kelsey the most beautiful yellow dress and had her friend take her out all day to keep her occupied while we got everything situated. I arrived at the venue which was the most beautiful greenhouse I had laid eyes on in awhile. The sun was in and out all day but it thankfully held up for our shoot. The vibe was perfect. We played music and had the owner block off the greenhouse from all the visitors just before her arrival. The plan was to have Kelseys friend bring her to the venue to "pick flowers out" for Jessica. Kelsey was to go throughout the entire greenhouse and ultimately find Jessica in the back waiting for her. Whelp, as we were rehearsing Kelsey arrived and was so excited (she had a good idea) that she took off and entered the back of the greenhouse and surprised us! What a surprise that was! haha
These two are the most loving couple I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. They made my job so easy. They cried, laughed, danced, and ran around. Wishing them a lifetime of happiness, love, wealth, and health. Happy Pride! Love is Love. The rest is history.
Love + Respect,
