Carissa + Benjamin | A Proposal!

I love proposals. They are the start to the things I love most about my job. “Yes!” marks the beginning of one of the most fun chapters of every couples love story that I have the distinct pleasure of providing the “illustrations” for. I can tell you guys now…this love story, it is already a blessed and memorable one and I am honored to have photographed it’s new start!

Benjamin contacted me a little while back. I could hear the excitement in his voice as he began to tell me about his plans…

There would be six stations. At each one would be a loved one with a gorgeous bouquet of roses and another clue, all of which would eventually lead to him. He told me that his family would make up the first three stops. His brother would be first…

His beautiful sister would be the second…

and his wonderful parents would be third…

And if you weren’t teary eyed already, let me tell you how great our God is and how big Benjamin’s love for Carissa is. Carissa took a leap of faith a while back to move to Texas from Oregon. If the distance  of 2,127 miles isn’t enough to make you wonder why, then the weather and scenery switch is. Only God could convince someone to move from one of his most beautiful creations (seriously, I’d drive to Oregon every day if it meant I could stay.) But God had bigger plans more beautiful than his creation…he had a love story in mind.  A love story that would bring Carissa a man who would bring her family 2,127 miles for these moments…

First her sister and brother in love…

And then her incredible parents…

Last, and definitely not least…Benjamin!

Like I said…the best love stories start with “Yes!”
