Sometimes, the odds are completely in your favor when meeting couples and their families. This is the case with a certain beautiful family right here in Houston. I met sisters Kat & Emmalee at the Bridal Extravaganza a while back. Since then, I have taken engagement pictures for Kat who was engaged at the time. We’ve all gotten together for brunch and it’s just so easy to like these ladies and their AMAZING Mom, Lisa!
So naturally, I call them occasionally just to say hello. This is when in late November I was clued in that Emmalee’s boyfriend would be proposing to her. I was so excited! Once the plan was in place, I disguised myself as a random park bench-goer complete with sunglasses and a scarf. I didn’t want Emmalee to recognize me and there was NO hiding in this park if I wanted to get a good shot!
It all went pretty perfectly. They headed to the park near their home along with Harvey, their Golden-doodle. He proposed, and she said yes. She may also have jumped up and down and there may or may not be pictures below. We took more pictures of all of them together and then walked back to the house where both families had gathered with champagne waiting to surprise and celebrate the occasion.
