When my brother-in-law, Thomas, shared the exciting, but very hush-hush, news he would be proposing to his girlfriend Lindsey, my husband and I were so happy for him. They are such a great match, and we’ve really enjoyed getting to know her and her family over the years! Plus, it worked out perfectly that she is from the Sacramento area which meant Thomas would come to town often while they were long-distance. After we heard all his initial ideas for the proposal, I of course can’t help but blurt out, “If you want it photographed, you know a photographer!”
Getting engaged is often one of the most romantic moment’s in a girl’s life, and capturing it on camera? How special would that be?? I’m so glad Thomas took me up on the offer! He decided it would be best on Thanksgiving day, when his parents would be in town. The plan: convince Lindsey to go on a walk through the nearby park and end up at a bench overlooking the American River. Meanwhile, I went incognito in an oversized sweatshirt and beanie, pretending to read a Jane Austen novel. Lindsey had her hesitations about the far length of the walk on Thanksgiving morning, especially given the fact she had already ran the Run to Feed the Hungry 5k a few hours before! Thankfully, she went along for the walk and only tried to change the route a few times. ;) Finally, they reached the bench, took a seat, and Thomas popped the question! Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs.! Welcome to the family, Lindsey!
