Several months ago one of my favorite women sent me a message asking if I wanted to go to Europe with her. Of course, the answer was a resounding yes! Little did I know that this trip would change my life! Okay, that sounds highly dramatic. But it really was amazing! In a whirlwind week we explored London and Iceland. And I saw more beauty then I can ever remember seeing!
Four of those days were spent in Iceland, and we had an amazing photoshoot at the Black Sands Beach! But when you take pictures at a popular tourist location something funny happens. Everyone with a camera thinks they can take pictures of you! So, I took off my coat (it was COLD) and it felt like the whole beach turned towards us. I’m not exaggerating when I say that 20 strangers have pictures of me!
As the session went on most of the other people drifted away. And I got more comfortable, but I also got colder. After a bit I said “Okay, I am really cold can we be done now?” Jeff said “Of course baby, but just one more picture.” And then he pulled a ring box out of his pocket! As he got down on one knee he became the only person in the world. The other photographers just disappeared. It was just Jeff and me on a beach. For some reason I could not stop giggling! While he was kneeling *I* was feeling nervous! Which is ridiculous because I wasn’t even the one asking! Then he said a bunch of nice things that made me blush. And he asked me to marry him.
Of course I said yes! And I am so excited that my story became our story, and that it will be our story to create together for the rest of our lives!
Also I can’t say thank you enough to Anh and Bryan for capturing these incredible images! I am so thankful that you were there to document this moment for us! I will truly treasure these images for the rest of our lives together!
