Surprise Proposal At Klyde Warren Park

Today is the day we have been waiting for! For so long! We can finally share all the details about Monday’s surprise proposal at Klyde Warren Park. One of the hardest secrets we ever had to keep!!!

I have met Liz over a year ago. She is one of the most genuine, fun and adorable girls I have ever met! In other words: A “witty personality and classic style”, as she loves to describe herself on her inspirational blog Witty N Pretty. From the first day we met, she was swooning over her boyfriend: David. Her smile got bigger, her hands shaky and her eyes full of sparkle! We both knew it then. They were a match made in heaven. But we had to be patient.

And then. Finally. A few weeks back. A message. From David. He was planning his proposal. And Liz made sure in the past, he knew to ask US to capture it!!! We were so thrilled. Excited. And just head over heels. Days went by. Weeks.

And we had to keep it a secret. But it was so wort every second!!!

We kept eye contact. He nodded. Douglas and I were in position. I knew Liz and David were only a few steps away now. I slowly started sneaking up on them. Carefully. Hiding behind bushes. (If she saw me, she would know what was about to happen). The sun slowly setting behind them. Trees forming the most beautiful arch around them. And he stopped. Gently took her hand. Pulled her in close. Smiled at her. Slowly. He got down on his knee. The moment was finally here. Her hands shaking. Staring into David’s eyes. While he places the most precious diamond ring onto her finger.

 The world around us stopped.

Liz and David! Words cannot describe our appreciation for being able to capture one of the most special moments in your life!!! Liz, thank you for trusting Douglas and I from the very first moment we met. We got to follow along your journey of making Dallas your home, switching jobs, fulfilling your dream of being an inspirational influencer, while living life, hand in hand, with your boyfriend, now fiancé, and soon-to-be husband!!! We could not be more happy and excited for you both! We love you and cannot wait to capture your engagement photos, and your WEDDING day!!!
