Engagement: Marissa & Alex

Not too long ago, my sister got engaged! Her boyfriend, Alex, planned a romantic proposal in the woods and I’m so excited to share the photos with you on my brand-new photography blog. If you’re a true romantic and want to hear all of the details, you can find their engagement story on my lifestyle blog.

The short version is that he planned to ask Marissa to go on a walk and then propose on the greenway in our neighborhood. Beforehand, he set up some photos in the woods with things he loves about Marissa written on the back of them. Marissa actually beat him to it and asked him to go on a walk that afternoon, so she really wasn’t expecting a thing.

When they were walking his dog, Asher, they stopped in front of the photos and he popped the question.

My cousin, Sarah, flew to Raleigh from where she lives in Atlanta, to be there for the proposal and to take photos with me (although I’ve only included my photos in this post). We hid behind trees and snapped pictures as Alex proposed.

Later that night, Marissa asked me to be her maid of honor and asked Sarah to be one of her bridesmaids with a cute pair of gold knot earrings.
