Today was a Fairy Tale
If there is one thing a photographer loves to do, it's something they have never done before. So you can imagine my excitement when I received a phone call from Abu Yousafzai asking me to document a surprise proposal he had planned for his girlfriend of 3 and half years, Ashley Guidroz.
My very first surprise engagement!!
Abu and I met early on the big day to go over our game plan at the Nichols Arboretum in Ann Arbor Michigan. Abu had everything all planned out, the ring--that he had kept hidden from Ashley in different spots for weeks (!), the perfect location: the place of their first date, the photographer (me haha!), and even Ashley's best friend Sarah Lesch and her husband Wesley to arrive after the proposal with celebratory champagne, and oohs and aahs for the gorgeous ring that Abu had chosen, to celebrate his and Ashley's love for one another.
Watching this video it's hard not to cry along with Ashley, because to see the look of genuine love and happiness on their faces is truly overwhelming.
Thank you so much for including me on such a special day Abu...I hope the rest of your life with Ashley is as perfect as a fairy tale.
