Amber + Daryl : Couples Session Turned Surprise Proposal!

All Amber wanted for her birthday was a portrait session with Daryl to document their relationship and their love for one another.  So sweet right?! What she didn’t know or even dream of is that Daryl would take that one birthday wish and make it into a day she will never forget.  About twenty minutes into our session together I told Amber we had to visit this one place in the park that was my favorite.  I told her how it had just beautiful light and this canopy of trees that made it truly magical!  What she didn’t know is that was “magical ” was the code word Daryl and I had agreed on for when the time was right…to propose!  We figured it was a word that wouldn’t come up naturally in conversation and Daryl and Amber had just returned from a trip to Disney with his family that dare I say, was magical?  To say Amber was in utter shock and disbelief was an understatement!  I think if she ever did have a feeling that maybe “today was the day” I squashed it by making her walk through the park for quite a while first.  Congratulations Daryl and Amber!  I am so excited for the two of you to start on this new journey together!
