Maddie + Luke | She Said Yes!

Universal rule: when you receive an email on Christmas Day asking if you can shoot a portrait session that will turn into an AWESOME PROPOSAL, you move mountains to say yes! Luke and Maddie are seriously the cutest couple ever. I know, I know. I say that a lot about my couples (because I do just have the cutest couples), but these two are the real deal.

We started the session like any other as we walked along some trails found at Marian Bear Park, the perfect setting for this adventurous, nature-loving couple. Luke had the perfect setting in mind for where he'd pop the big question at the end of the shoot: a beautiful grass patch surrounded by tall, winter trees. "It's so Maddie. She'll love that area," he said.

He may have been nervous as we walked toward those trees, but it didn't show. All I saw was confidence. That, and a dazzling smile every time he looked at his gorgeous lady.
