How We Met

I had known Eric a little in high school, but I officially met him through a mutual friend at their house one nigh a few years later. He made me laugh right off the bat, and we’ve been together ever since.

How He Asked

Eric and I were modeling as the bride and groom for a styled shoot. We had been doing the portraits around the manor for a while, and we went out to do the last few in one of the garden areas outside. The photographer told us to “act cute,” so I thought we were still posting for pictures and when Eric started talking to me I thought he was just trying to follow instruction and be cute. Then he got down on one knee, and I thought he was just over-doing what the photographer told us.

Once he pulled out a ring, I realized it was real, and was shocked!

He asked me to marry him with the photographer clicking away, and I said yes (of course)! I found out later that the entire team of vendors for the shoot had been in on it the whole time!
