I have been super anxious to tell everyone but had to wait until they made the official announcement… but the photo session I did the other day of my brother was actually a PROPOSAL!  He had me ask them to model for me so I could “try out some new gear”.  He was so worried about her catching on, so he tried to throw her off a few times during the session.  I was trying so hard not to laugh.

I brought little chalkboards to try to keep it fun, interesting, and candid.  These were their portraits of each other.  LOL.

Then he suggested writing something sweet to try to throw her off his scent.  He was very convincing.  She said later she thought that might be it.

And then… while we were shooting in the woods, my husband secretly set up an easel with a super cute frame my brother made with sweet momentos… the napkin and check from their first date, a photo of them together, and a heartfelt message.

It took several minutes to try to lead her over to the area where it was setup, which is a hilarious story in itself.  Anyways, here is the proposal!

She said no!  Just kidding, she said yes and I am so psyched for them!  We are all so excited to welcome her to the family and I am so, so honored that they allowed me to be there to photograph this special moment.
