These two are getting MARRIED this month! I was so lucky to have the opportunity to capture their surprise proposal, so in honor of their upcoming wedding, I wanted to share their proposal story. In January 2017, Koda reached out to me about photographing his proposal to Jazz. He had planned a day trip from Texas to Miami just to pop the question! Together, Koda and I picked the most dreamy location for the big moment and I hid in the bushes of Bill Bags State Park waiting for Koda and Jazz to arrive in front of the lighthouse. They had two of their closest friends with them (who were also recently engaged!) who I had been texting all morning to make sure our timing was just right. When I saw Koda and Jazz round the corner and step in front of the lighthouse, my heart started racing as I lifted up my camera and started snapping away as quickly as possible. When Koda got down on one knee, and Jazz’s face lit up with pure joy, I felt so incredibly lucky to have been part of this experience.
These two were so joyful and it was such a pleasure capturing this moment for them. After they had a few minutes to enjoy the moment, we walked around Bill Bags State Park and took a few engagement portraits. These two just couldn’t stop smiling!
The best part? Their sweet friends were with them to celebrate! The girls both wanted to show off their new rings with their fíances!
Congratulations, Koda and Jazz! I am so excited for you to get married later this month and start the rest of your lives together!
