brandon & Liz

This is a story of high school sweethearts falling in love and living happily ever after. Liz and Brandon have been together for 10 years and the big day finally came to pop the question and here's how it went.

A little back story, Liz and I met back in college and she is a part of our group of friends. I was able to room with her for a year in college and we made so many unforgettable memories. We go on yearly trips together with the rest of our friend group and we try to see Liz whenever we can. Oftentimes it is difficult to gather a group of 9 to all be in one place at one time and Liz happens to live the furthest away, but we try to make it work! She is one of my favorite people to be around - from her contagious laugh and her unconditional love for dogs, there are so many things to love about Liz and I am so grateful for our friendship.

So when Brandon contacted me about proposing one day, to say I FREAKED OUT would be an understatement. It was actually more like screaming in excitement - the day had finally come! Brandon had some amazing plans in place for this proposal and my only job was to dress in disguise and capture this amazing moment without her seeing me! Let's just say that she did not see it coming one bit. We all were crying and seeing her reaction was priceless, it was such a beautiful and happy day.

I was completely overjoyed over the whole experience and it was the moment that we have all been waiting for and everyone couldn't stop smiling. I am so happy for Brandon & Liz and will forever be grateful and honored that they chose me to capture such a special moment between them.
