“Up for a late night proposal?”
When you get a text like that at 10:30 pm from a dear friend, you just get into GO mode, especially when he is about to propose to one of the kindest, most radiant Christian girls ever to live on this planet…his sweet Colleen. They met through swing dancing, and Anthony knew just four days after they started dating that Colleen was the woman he wanted to marry. In fact, he wrote that realization down on a sticky note and saved it in the canvas you see below! His plan was to pull it out when the time came to propose to her, and that’s exactly what happened last night. So when he asked me if I was up for helping make his proposal a reality, I grabbed my friend and fellow photog Ryan and we jumped into action, creating a romantic candlelight proposal in less than two hours. I’m pretty sure I broke at least fifty traffic laws driving around for flowers (Walmart, yo) and lighting (CVS ftw), but I had a blast helping my two dear friends promise their love to each other. Ryan lent me his camera so that I could hop into professional photographer mode and capture these secret photos of the two love birds, so please enjoy this small look into their incredible night!
Colleen and Anthony, I am so proud to call you my sister and brother in Christ, and thank you for including me in this special occasion. These are the moments in life that I live for.
