It’s been a busy couple weeks with a lot of fun different shoots, including this one.

I’ve had to keep my mouth shut about this for MONTHS (so hard) but it has finally happened and I couldn’t be happier!

My BFF Jess is engaged and I feel SO lucky that I got to witness it first hand!  Her boyfriend (now fiance) Mark liked the idea of having the process documented so I got to be there to take pictures and his best friend Rob video recorded it through a window sill, ninja style.

This was right before the proposal.  Before the tears started pouring uncontrollably.  Ahhhhhhhhh!


Some basic info about the proposal:

He proposed in the Disneyland Dream Suite above Pirates of the Caribbean (a special place to them).

The ring is from Neil Lane.

Jess had NO IDEA.


Popping out and surprising her was one of the funnest things I’ve ever done.  Thanks to our Disney tour guide/accomplice Rachel for snapping these.

undefined undefined I will do a VERY thorough blog post about the whole thing soon but in the mean time I just wanted to share these.  Super sneak peek!  Mark and Jess haven’t even seen any of the pictures or footage.  I’m gonna put everything together in a mushy slideshow or something to present to them.  🙂

    Just looking at the pix and remembering everything you told me abut that day makes me cry all over again!!! I am so excited for both of you and the pictures Christine took are super-amazing (like the couple). Can’t wait to see them all and the mushy video/slide show. Now I know where to go if I just need a good old fashioned happy cry!!!
