My favorite thing in the world to photograph is proposals. When Billy emailed Sarah to ask if he could propose at our workshop, we were both over the moon!! The plan was set, during the “engagement” portion of the shoot, I would give Billy the signal and set Taylor up for a faux First Look. She was completely shocked!

These two modeled for us for about 30 minutes before we took them out front of Anderson House. Since they are photographers themselves, Taylor never thought suspected a thing or thought it was strange to model for a shoot like this one! After screaming yes, these two celebrated with pizza and a fancy hotel! Taylor got to take home her custom Just Engaged jacket created by Postskript Co. as a gift from yours truly. Here are my favorite shots from proposal!
