she said yes!

Every time I photograph a proposal, I think to myself: “How many people get to witness these beautiful occasions?” Not too many.

This one was extra special, because the proposer’s mom, Patsy, is someone I got to know when I photographed her wedding five years ago. She is pretty incredible, as is her hubby. And she raised a wonderful son, Bud. They all live in Tennessee but travel to Newport regularly and Bud decided he wanted to propose to the adorable Hailey at the beach.

The decoy was family photos for Patsy and Kelly’s anniversary. I did a few shots of the four of them, then as couples. This shot was taken pre-proposal. How cute are they?IMG_7070Patsy told me Bud was nervous, but it didn’t show. And Hailey was really surprised!

IMG_7149Oops, the ring was a bit too small. A bit of a disappointment for Hailey, who couldn’t wait to wear it! They got it re-sized lickety-split before they went home.
