About the Proposal

Carly and Brett’s family collaborated early on to make this proposal so special! It was so amazing to see the thought and love behind all the planning they did together months before the day. You could see very clearly how much they cared and supported Carly and Brett.
On the day of, I got there early and saw all the special touches they put into it including photos of Carly and Brett through the years and even their dog. Red rose petals were everywhere and red rose bouquets as well, all leading up to the balcony where Brett was going to propose. Their family and friends got there early and helped set this up and then hid on one part of the rooftop for the big moment.
Finally Brett and Carly came up, I could see how surprised Carly was. Brett took her to the center and took got on his knee and asked her to be his wife! She said yes and of course all the family and friends came out to celebrate. Carly was so shocked and crying happy tears. It was definitely emotional, and I’m so glad I was able to capture it.
