Let me tell you about a day filled with surprises, happy tears and tons of love!
This is the story of how Evan proposed to his fiancee Riley!
At the end of April, while I was prepping for Sage & Spruce in Idaho, I got a call from this darling lady named Kendoll. She was looking for a photographer to help her brother plan a surprise proposal for his girlfriend on May 31st. She told me how they were both down to earth couple and Evan was just looking for a special non-flashy way to propose to Riley. Later that week I had a chance to speak to Evan and his mom Jill as well. First of all...talk about a super rad family who honestly just loves each other and exude happiness! W
The Newly Engaged Couple
OK Let's talk about surprise number 2 for Riley!
Evan coordinated with his family AND Riley's family to fly out to surprise her for her "Welcome to Colorado" celebration. Little did their family know (with the exception of Evan's mom & sister as well as Riley's dad and oldest sister) that they were going to be surprised by the newly ENGAGED couple.
We planned how this was going to go down as well..I would take the couple after a few "engagement" like images to a local wine bar called Root & Flower so I could say goodbye and they could grab a glass of wine before they went to dinner.
WELP...as we were walking back...Riley goes "Is that my dad? DAD!" and right there in front of us..trying to make a break for it...was Riley's parents and Evan's mom Jill. Whoops...not exactly how we had it planned BUT hey...it worked out perfectly none-the less.
Take a look below to see all the amazing family reactions!
Cheers to Riley and Evan...and their completely amazing families!
