I have known Aleesha since high school, so when her girlfriend Ashlyn asked me to be a part of her surprise proposal, I was THRILLED!! Catching a proposal on video, and film, is something that I would love to do a whole lot more of. It is such a genuine, and intimate part of a wedding story, and I feel like it is so often missed! My husband was able to catch our proposal on video, (thanks to a trusty point and shoot camera, and a tree), and it is one of my most prized and treasured possessions, so to be able to do that for someone else is just amazing!
Aleesha and Ashlyn frequented a cute little coffee shop named Cosmos for date nights, so it was only fitting for Ashlyn to pop the question right there. I got there ahead of time to set everything up, and then once I knew they were almost there, I set up post, hiding in the bathroom. When it was time to start rolling, Ashlyn shot a quick text, and I captured the whole thing without Aleesha being the wiser! As soon as they had their special moment together, I came out, and took some shots, and then we decided to celebrate with an engagement shoot right on the spot!
I had so much fun celebrating such a fun time with both of them, and wish them nothing but all the happiness in the world in the future!
