So really it was just a normal couple’s session between these two high school sweethearts, until Kade turned it into a lovely Abilene TX engagement session! The funny thing is Lacey wasn’t the only one who was a little surprised. Kade didn’t tell me ANYTHING. We started off the session and it was a gorgeous, hot day. We hung out a little bit, took some great photos, and were headed to an outfit change. As we were walking to the car, Kade taps me and quickly shows me a ring box. WHAT?! With no heads up, I just said, “Actually let’s do a couple more right here, the sun is amazing!” Which really wasn’t a lie. I asked her to face the other way, and Kade dropped down on one knee!
You can tell they were waiting for this moment for a long time, and I was so happy to capture it. She said yes, and they embraced each other in glee for a few minutes. It was warm, intimate, joyful. I still can’t believe I get to be a part of such special moments for my job. I seriously couldn’t ask for anything better.
I’m sure Kade was so nervous leading up to the proposal, but was totally weightless when that ring went on Lacey’s finger. We enjoyed the sunset and frolicked around in the Texas summer heat! It was such a romantic and joyful evening.
Like I said, I love being part of special moments like this. If you are planning a proposal, don’t hesitate to reach out! I would love to capture one of the happiest days of you and your person’s lives!
