We had a young man contact us to capture his proposal to his girlfriend while they were here on vacation. He was so sweet and had thought of everything, months in advance. What we had to figure out was how to get close to him without his girlfriend suspecting anything.
I asked Makayla, Mr. Smitho’s drop dead gorgeous cousin if she’d be willing to model for me so that I could be taking pictures of her when they walked up we could be close to them for the proposal! Lucky for us, Wade Makayla’s equally as drop dead gorgeous boyfriend just so happened to have graduated and returned home from Ohio State University just a few weeks ago.
(In case you missed the seriously adorable couple who got engaged that day you can find some of their pictures here)
After finishing up Makayla and Wades gallery I could not decide which ones to share… so I decided I would make a blog post and share them here !
The lighting was perfect and the wind blew her hair just right. If you are ever around these two it is evident in a matter of seconds just how in love they are. Their laughter was infectious!
I didn’t have to direct or pose them… I was able to stand back and just capture the moment!
I told Makayla that she could be a model!
But then she gets it honest.
At Easter I had the privilege of photographing her parents. Her mama is Adam’s first cousin. She and Mark, Makayla’s daddy were high school sweethearts. They have been married 25 years this year and we did a photo session to commemorate their anniversary.
I am so blessed to be able to call them family! When I married Adam, I gained an amazing extended family. Not only do they all look like they walked off the page of a magazine… If I ever need a babysitter, I know we can call Aunt Mo and if she’s not busy she’ll be there. Most of my family lives out of town now and so to have someone we can call on that will take care of my babies as if they were her own is a Godsend!
