Congratulations Caroline & Craig!

Congratulations Caroline & Craig!

A few weeks ago I asked Caroline & Craig to be models for me for an assignment I received while in the first week of the Jasmine Star 30 day Boot Camp hosted by CreativeLive. When Caroline mentioned to me that Craig was very excited to help out, I was a little suspicious but chalked it up him being a nice guy (I wasn't going to complain!). Little did I know he was finding just the right time to ask an incredibly important question!

While walking around between locations, I asked Craig if he ever missed his home town of Chicago. He replied that he thinks of it every day, and tons of things, even a little bridge we had just crossed, remind him of home. As we were wrapping up our photo session, he stopped Caroline on that bridge and just looked at her.

It was like time had just stopped. I knew they weren't posing, it was obvious that in that moment it was just two of them. I don't know about Caroline, but my heart skipped a beat! And sure enough, it was just another moment before he was down on one knee. He hadn't said a word to me about proposing and definitely hadn't asked me to capture his proposal, so when my husband said, "he's going to tie his shoe!" I was wondering if that's exactly what was going on… I started taking pictures just in case, thinking "Oh please don't be tying your shoe!"

As it turns out, he was wearing boots –no shoelaces, just a ring ;)
