This Winter I got to photograph my big brother propose to his girlfriend, Sam, by the big Christmas tree at the Toledo Zoo. Our family and some of Brian & Sam's close friends were there, hiding behind groups of people, just hoping that Sam would keep looking at the tree and not notice the faces around her. We must have hid pretty well, because she had no idea we were there. She also had no idea what Brian was doing when he pulled out a little box and got down on one knee. I didn't realize how hard it would be to photograph such a sweet moment and wipe away tears at the same time!
Brooks and I got to take their engagement photos a couple weeks ago and we had a great time! We took Brian & Sam to Grand Rapids for some ice cream and to take some pictures by the river. Then we headed to her parents house, ending the evening watching the beautiful sunset by the pond. It was such a fun afternoon with tons of smile and laugher, we hope you enjoy!
Now I am looking forward to being a part of their wedding in exactly a year! Brooks will be taking photos while I get to take part in the events of the day. (Although, I'm sure I will grab the camera a couples times...). We can't wait!
