I met Katie back in 2011 when she chose me to photograph her high school senior pictures!! A few years later she became my summer intern and became my forever friend! I remember when she and Brandon started dating! I’ll never forget the moment I got “the phone call” that Brandon wanted to surprise Katie with a photographed proposal. Well… I should reword that… Katie told Brandon that when he proposes – “starla better be there to photograph it”. haha. So… obviously we knew it was going to be hard to surprise her!! If she saw me it would be a dead giveaway that he was about to propose so we did the only logical thing – “hide in plain sight”!!! I asked Katie if she could come with me to mini sessions at the Memphis Botanic Garden and watch Finn which Ian helps me shoot and then they could switch and Ian could watch Finn while Katie helped me shoot. This was pretty normal since she used to be my intern and I had been wanting to hang out with her. So I told her to stand in a certain spot so i could check my lighting for the next client but little did she know that the next client was HER!! Her boyfriend was walking up behind her about to propose and she had no idea!!! YAYY!!!!! WE DID IT!!!! We surprised Katie!!! Here’s some photos from when she said yes. and scroll down further for her engagement session!
