Marques contacted me to help him plan his proposal to his girlfriend, Ashley. I've never met them before, but after an exchange of a few back-and-forth emails, I learned more about what he wanted to come out of the photoshoot as well as learned about their personalities. They met each other in college and just had their baby girl (who's super adorable, by the way!). I could tell through the tone of Marques' emails that he was very nervous so I wanted do my best to help make their proposal go as smoothly as possible.
Ashley was "tricked" into thinking that they were only taking family photos. Her parents also tagged along so they could take care of Harper when I took photos of Ashley and Marques. Halfway through our photoshoot Marques planned to approach her from behind and pop the question while I pretended to photograph her and Harper.
It was exciting to be a part of a big moment in their lives, and I'm so honored that Marques asked me to take their photos! Congratulations once again, Ashley and Marques!
