She said yes! Well, of course she did! Michael had a special plan for popping the question, and from the look on Reilly's face, you can tell it was just perfect.
Several weeks ago, a good friend of Michael and Reilly's contacted me, telling me that Michael was planning the proposal and wanted a photographer to capture the moment. We talked through the basics, and then last week, I got the call - everything was in place, and today would be the big day. Reilly loves her horse, Ellie, and Michael wanted to propose at the stables and include Ellie in the proposal and the pictures.
Since Michael had a busy schedule, their dear friends met me at the stables earlier this week to walk me through the plan. We discussed the different lighting situations in different spots and different times of day, and we got our ducks in a row.
Reilly spent the day with Kristyn, and after lunch and shopping, they decided to stop by to visit Ellie. When Reilly walked into the stable, she was surprised to see Michael there, along with some special touches they had prepared. It was such a beautiful moment, and I was so happy to be there to capture it for this sweet couple.
A special "thank you" goes out to Tori, Kristyn, and Lauren for all the behind-the-scenes work. And let's not forget Ellie! She was a trooper! These two are certainly blessed with some great friends!
So of course Reilly said yes! It was a perfect moment for a perfect couple. Congratulations, Reilly and Michael! Enjoy this special time together. Looking forward to wedding planning with you!
