Surprise Engagement

As we finished the Coates Family Picture Session, there was a delightful turn of events. Steven and Carrie were the last small group and just when we thought it was time to go home, Steven gave Carrie a special hug and said “you know I love you, right?

Next thing we knew he was down on one knee, proposing. Only Carrie’s sister was in on the surprise until moments before.

As Steven confessed his love for Carrie and asked her to be his wife, most of the crowd were wiping the tears away. It was beautiful.

Congratulations Steven and Carrie!

I am a retired middle school counselor who loves being with people and taking pictures. Once I retired I didn't see the students and their parents on a regular basis. I missed that. I had always enjoyed photographing the kids at their events and so I thought I would offer to take pictures in my spare time. Living in a small town word got around and my students started to graduate from high school, whala! Senior Pictures, then they got engaged, then married and then had families. The perfect timeline for a photographer. Since I started I have been called out of town and have met new people and families. I am never without my camera and my family is glad they aren't always the subjects. I think any picture session should be fun for all. I like to get to know my clients and capture their personalities as well as their smiles.
