Adam & Elizabeth | She Said Yes | Minneapolis Proposal Photographer

I seriously love proposals! And Adam absolutely nailed this day with all of his planning. Elizabeth thought that she was going to a family photo session for Adam’s mom. But when they arrived, Adam’s brother was “running behind”, so I asked Adam and Elizabeth if they would willing to be my light test subjects. I almost laughed when Adam kind of rolled his eyes and said, “I guess”. Once I took a couple shots, Adam took Elizabeth’s hands and while I couldn’t hear what Adam was saying, the words were obviously very special to Elizabeth. Then he was down on one knee and her smile was an obvious “yes”.

Since I had never met either of them before, we spent a little time talking and walking and grabbing some more photos. And then as if the morning hadn’t been magical enough, Adam had arranged for both of their families to surprise Elizabeth and arrive on a trolley! It was a such a wonderful morning! Adam, you are a rock star! Your plan went off perfectly! And Elizabeth, you are stunning girl! And I’m so happy for both of you. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend celebrating being ENGAGED!! XOXO
