G + I
10 minutes before this session - I got a text from Gabby's mom.
"Ismael is going to propose to Gabby today! Please make sure you get some pictures :)"
My mouth dropped! I've never photographed a proposal before, but I was so excited for Gabby. We hadn't planned anything out, so I was stressing the whole time about how I could give Ismael an opportunity to get the ring out and surprise her. Finally, I had Gabby turn her back to him, and he quickly pulled out the ring. She kept saying "Ismael, put your arms around me like she said!" She turned around and saw him down on his knee and it was the cutest moment. Gabby's mom and little sisters had come along to watch and with everyone watching, it couldn't have been a more perfect proposal!
I had previously taken photos for Gabby's little sister's Quincenera and did a Mommy + Me session for Gabby and her son Jasiel. Now this, next the wedding! I'm so grateful for and humble that my clients that continue to return to have me to capture the important milestones in their lives.
