I love weddings! But the wedding starts with the proposal and I am always so excited to get the opportunity to photograph the moment when He says will you marry me and she says YES!!!!
A few weeks ago Darby’s Dad called me about photographing the upcoming engagement of his daughter. I photographed one of his other daughter’s weddings a few years ago so I was so happy that I was available and able to work with this family again.
Darby is a budding artist, she loves to paint. Her fiancé Justin orchestrated one of the most touching and thoughtful proposals. He told her they were going to be attending a painting class together at Studio Sabka in downtown Fort Worth. Little did she know while they had a delicious dinner their family and friends were transforming this gallery into a showing of her paintings! When they walked in she was surrounded by her very own art and Justin dropped to one knee as he asked her to marry him. She said YES! Then their family and friends cheered and enjoyed a lovely eating toasting champagne, admiring her new bling and telling her all the times they had to lie to her that week to keep the secret.
Before taking the party to her parents house Darby & Justin headed over to the Modern Art Museum with me to take some engagement portraits with the holiday lights. It was gorgeous! Thanks Darby & Justin for letting me tell you story and best of wishes in all your wedding planning and your marriage!
