Meet Gabrielle & Tim. Tim contact me to photograph his proposal to his girlfriend. We planned his surprise proposal at the Dallas Arboretum. Gabrielle & Tim met while living in Hawaii serving in the Navy. They would walk the botanical gardens in Hawaii and he thought it’d be the perfect place to propose to her. It is aways so fun to photograph a surprise proposal! There were so few people at the Arboretum that afternoon that I had a much more difficult time “blending in” than I would on other days. But out plan worked perfectly and Tim was able to propose to Gabrielle at the Women’s Garden in the spot he had in mind. After the proposal, I went up to them and gave them their first words of congratulations! It was such a great pleasure to be a part of this surprise for them. After the proposal, we photographed their spring engagement portraits on the grounds of the Dallas Arboretum. I hope you enjoy viewing these moments and portraits.
