Hot Springs Proposal Photographer

Kellie + Craig | Hot Springs Arkansas Proposal Photographer

On March 17, 2017 I had the honor of photographing the most stunning proposal I have ever witnessed. There were thousands of flowers, dozens of candles, and live music playing on a lake terrace for this perfect moment!  Kellie was absolutely surprised! Her fiancee, Craig, lives in Boston and she thought was simply coming home from a day of fun with her sweet kids. Little did she know what was waiting for her! Great job to all the fantastic vendors who came together in just a few days to pull this off! 
Kellie and Craig, congratulations to all four of you! I hope this beautiful beginning is just that, a beautiful beginning to lifelong adventures together!

Kevin + Ang | Hot Springs Wedding Proposal

I received Kevin's initial inquiry about photographing his proposal while I was still in Romania this summer. I was intrigued from the beginning, and the more that I heard about their story, the more excited I was to meet them in person and watch the sweet event unfold! Funny story, I am from the same suburb of Dallas that they are! They both love the outdoors so Kevin opted to propose at the Mountain Tower overlook area--on a beautiful August afternoon that was surprisingly not blazing hot! Kevin had mailed me a rustic piece of reclaimed wood that was special to the two of them and had prepped it with a message to Ang. My job was to plant it on the overlook rock and then camp out and wait for them. Everything went without a hitch, and this is where they not having met me came in handy! Talk about being incognito in broad daylight! Ang and most of her family were there with Kevin. They walked up to the area and he led her down the rock. The rest is history! She was absolutely shocked that he would propose somewhere in a state other than Texas, and the ring was an obvious success!

Congratulations, Ang and Kevin! It was an absolute honor to capture these moments for you both! I know your wedding is going to be amazing! God's blessings on your new life together!  

Danny + Ariel // Hot Springs Arkansas Engagement Photographer

This proposal was perfect. It was a complete surprise, and I was overjoyed to be a part of it as Danny had described "The Plan" to me over the past few weeks. He was going to propose inside a glass chapel at the Hot Springs Garvan Woodland Gardens. It was all in place. I was going to plant a special green box at the altar to be waiting for them. 

However, as it would happen I got a call from Danny as I pulled in and he informed me that there was a wedding IN the chapel right then! Aaaaand we had no plan B. Turns out there was an amphitheater and I rearranged the plan, setting up there. And so in about an hour Danny saw the place for the first time, and without hesitating walked his girl over to the box and proposed. There were of course a few memorable words in between which I couldn't hear, but you get the picture.  SO happy for them! Enjoy the photo story!
