When Michelle reached out to us about photographing her surprise proposal to her girlfriend Taylor, we jumped at the chance to participate! The plans were constantly in flux as Taylor’s detective skills went into hyperdrive… turns out she is one difficult woman to surprise! We finally pulled off the ultimate surprise on Michelle’s birthday. While Taylor took Michelle out for a dinner and movie date, we “broke” into their house and set up the giant collage of photos and mementos from their relationship. The weather forecast was finicky, but we lucked out with the rain holding off. Before they arrived at home, we locked the garage door and turned off all the lights to trick Taylor into thinking the power was out so they would enter the house through the backyard. When they rounded the corner, we turned on the lights, and the rest is history. Michelle said one of the sweetest speeches we’ve ever heard, got down on one knee, and Taylor said an enthusiastic yes! Once we’d all dried our eyes, Michelle and Taylor looked at all the memories from their relationship and reflected on their excitement for the future. It was such a privilege to play such an instrumental role in the beginning of the rest of these gorgeous ladies’ lives!
