Anna & Brooks I love a good proposal. I talked with Brooks to plan out his proposal a few months beforehand, and I loved how intentional he was about making it the perfect proposal for Anna. I was photographing Anna’s cousin’s wedding later that spring, and so Brooks had an idea. He asked Madeline if she would tell Anna that she wanted some family photos done before the wedding to gift to her aunt. Anna didn’t think anything of it, because this sounded like something Madeline would do! So after Madeline’s dress fitting (another excuse to get them dressed all nice!) they met me down at the park and I pretended like this was completely normal to take family photos even before the wedding :) Brooks walked up (you can see him camped out in the background! Love it!) and tapped Anna on the shoulder. I’m not quite sure if she even knew what was happening right away. He got down on one knee, and Anna started crying. I loved that even as we were walking around downtown afterwards, Anna would just randomly break into happy tears. Brooks, ya did good!
