"1,122 days ago, I was asked on a date to the Marine Corps ball with a man I hadn't seen or spoken to since high school. Fast forward just over three years and my love for photography inspired me to capture us during our favorite season — he had bigger plans. With tear filled eyes, he said "I love you, I want you forever. Will you marry me?" My heart is overjoyed and in awe that I get to spend my life with this man." — Jenna Smith
"About 2 years ago, we met at flight attendant training. We got our wings in March 2015 and since then we've been all over the world, seeing places we've only dreamed of. Brad proposed on November 17th in San Diego. He set up a blanket on a bench with a bottle of wine, and got down on one knee while admiring the sunset at the cliffs (also unknowing to me he had a photographer capturing every moment!)" —Erin Phillips
"We were at the Grand Canyon. Jesse said he wanted us to get a picture taken together so we walked over to the ledge. I was facing the camera when I noticed Jesse getting down and when I looked, he was there in front of me, on one knee holding my hand and presenting me with a ring. He looked at me and smiled, tearing up, and asked if I'd marry him. I said yes, crying. It wasn't until the crowd cheered that I realized I wasn't dreaming and that just happened." — Taylor Jo
"Alex and I have been dating for 3 years and we love to travel. This summer, our South Africa plans got cancelled when Alex was hospitalized. Upon recovery, we booked a beautiful vacation to Montreal instead. On the last day of the trip, he planned a surprise proposal. On the way to dinner he asked me to be his adventure mate for life by listing all the places he wants to travel with me. Lindsay, our photographer, was sneakily capturing the beautiful moment as tears were flowing — and the rest is history!"— Amrit Rai
"We've been together for five years, most of which were long distance. We were visiting my family for Thanksgiving and it was his first time going into Chicago. While at "the Bean"/Cloudgate we were taking goofy selfies, when Michael asked for one more, nicer, photo. We asked a stranger to help and when taking the next picture, Michael got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!! It was absolutely perfect." — Caroline Knoblock
