He calls me up and says, "I'm really excited and I think it would be great to have professional photos of the moment to have forever. I'm proposing to my girlfriend at Ned's point where we had our first date." I was beyond psyched. Not only is Kyle a friend of mine, but I could tell from the sound in his voice just how much he loves her. He was not only excited, but slightly nervous as he explained he hadn't been able to sleep. I offered to calm his nerves a bit by meeting the the day before at the lighthouse to map out a plan. Kyle wanted to wait for the perfect time of day to make sure the sunset was beautiful behind them at the exact moment. The day of I hear his voice in the distance coxing Monica to follow him towards the position we had talked about. Monica in a slightly confused voice said "Oh you want to take a selfie over here?" And then I see Kyle pull her in close and tell her just how much he means to her... and then he dropped to one knee.
Monica exclaimed "You're so adorable! Yes!" Success. The next surprise was finding out I was near by to hold a mini engagement session with them
And how she couldn't believe she was engaged!
Of course they still had to take that epic selfie.
But we got those professional shots he wanted for the announcement too.
And just before we left we got that perfect sunset shot they were waiting for...
Couldn't be happier for you two. Congratulations from the bottom of my heart.
