Recently I photographed an engagement session for my friends Cassandra and Alice. When I am having such a good time working with a couple I cant help but wonder their story. I decided to ask them what their story was, and share it with you all along with some of their photos.
“we met through one of our mutual friends, Amanda. Amanda decided that she wanted a group of her friends to go to stonewall one night. I wasn't 21 yet so when we got there Alice went up stairs all night and I stayed down stairs but on the drive home we started talking and we went back to Amanda's house to hang out for a little bit. I texted Amanda saying that I thought Alice was really cool and I would like her number to get to know her more. So she texted Alice and gave her my number and Alice texted me saying that a little birdy told me that you like me and wanted to get my number so here it is.”
So how did you start dating?
“We started hanging out and I asked her out by making her French toast and carved it so it said wanna go steady?”
Tell me about your proposal.
“For the proposal we went to the zoo for my birthday but instead of going in August we went in September because something came up so when we went she gave the ring to her mom until we were at the giraffes and I had no clue I was so excited to see the gazelles and then I went to go look at the giraffes and we were standing next to each other and then she said Cassandra Kayla Hilger we've been talking about the rest of our lives she got down on one knee and asked if I would marry her and I was stunned and said yes and cried!”
Here are some more engagement photos! We took their engagement photo at the Allentown Rose Garden in Allentown, Pa.
So there it is, a true love story! I hope you’ve enjoyed the photos.
