We first met Alex and Brecklyn at The Big Reveal. Well, we really just met Brecklyn, and the three of us hit it off immediately. We were so excited when she was the winner of one of our free engagement sessions! Not too long after we let her know that she won our session, we got together with both her and Alex. We started planning and talking through their engagement session, when they told us they had a confession to make. They weren’t actually engaged yet.
We assured them that it was okay, and that we could still go forward making plans for their session. These two aren’t the only couple that we’ve started to work with that hasn’t been engaged yet, and we didn’t want that to deter them. The day after our meeting, we received one of the most sincere, heartfelt emails that we’ve ever gotten from Alex. Since we had gone ahead and set a date for their engagement session, he wanted to make sure that Brecklyn had her engagement ring and that things were “official” before their photo session. He knew that he wanted the moment he proposed to Brecklyn photographed, and asked if Kyle would be willing to help him out.
I’m not quite sure that we can convey just how excited we are when we’re asked to photograph a proposal. Of course Kyle was going to help Alex! Over the course of the next few weeks, these two schemed and planned everything out to a T. Right down to Kyle setting up a remote camera and telling Alex which way to have Brecklyn face when he proposed.
The big day rolled around (also Kyle’s birthday), and Kyle headed off to Lawrence to meet these two. It’s probably a good thing I was left at home, or my excitement and giggling would have given the whole thing away! Needless to say, Brecklyn was so caught off guard and surprised! Of course she said yes, and was so surprised when Kyle popped out of the bushes.
