“She told me New York City was her favorite place in the world, and that’s when I knew that was were I was going to ask her to marry me.”
Zach told me this when we were finalizing the details for his proposal to Rachel this past weekend in Central Park. You could hear the love in his voice for her and it had me tearing up. Now every shoot is special to me, but this one had an extra meaningful place in my heart! Not only is Rachel my incredible assistant, she’s also a dear friend! It’s been such a blessing to work with her and we have bonded over our shared love for Jesus, coffee, and Target!
It was hard to keep this a secret over the past few months, but it was so worth it! The day of the proposal, Zach changed my name in his phone to “Brad” and we secretly exchanged calls and texts throughout the morning. Everything went perfectly and SHE SAID YES!
Here are a few favorite photos!
We met up a few hours later for a little engagement session around Central Park! You guys are soooo beautiful!
You are a stunner, Rachel!
