matt & becca got engaged on christmas eve 2015, and i was honored to be there to photograph it happening. matt had texted me almost as soon as he had the ring (back in april 2015 i think!!) and asked if i could help him come up with a proposal plan that would be able to be secretly photographed. about 5 years ago, matt's family, becca & i made a silly video up at a park near their old house. matt & becca were planning to come to town at christmas this year, so we decided to tell her that we were going to recreate the video since we would all be together again. i met matt early christmas eve morning at the park to talk about our plans. we all went shooting for a bit, and to lunch, and then headed to the park where it was all going to happen. it could not have been more perfect. becca was so excited & surprised, and she could not stop looking at her ring. here are a few photos from the day & a surprise video at the end of the post (including some pretty hilarious clips from that day 5 years ago). matt & becca's wedding in ohio is going to be wonderful, and i can't wait to travel there to photograph it in september!! love you both.
