Dustin and Rochelle’s Proposal! {Connecticut Wedding Photographer}

Hello and Happy Monday!

Now, I don’t think I’ve ever been SO EXCITED to blog post before. I desperately wanted to post this yesterday, but with it being Father’s Day, things were just too crazy.

This blog post is very emotional and special to me. Dustin and Rochelle are some of Justin’s and I closest friends and we hang out with them ALL the time! They’re one of those amazing friends where you can call up any time to get advice, prayer, or just to laugh with. They are so near and dear to our hearts and I have no idea what I would do without these two. :)

So when Dustin had called me a few months back telling me his plan to propose, I screamed of excitement. He knows how much photos mean to Rochelle and he wanted Justin and I to be there to capture the whole thing. (how freaking sweet is that!) So we started coming up with a detailed plan.
On Saturday we jumped into the car and drove up to Rhode Island for a day trip. (We made up this huge story to get Rochelle to Rhode Island without being suspicious) On our way, we met up with our other good friends Meredith and Jordan and they joined us the rest of the day. :)
Dustin wanted to propose on a carousel on the Beach so we headed there after lunch. Rochelle was completely clueless which was perfect. We got on the carousel for what was about to be Rochelle’s best carousel ride of her life. Jordan had his video camera out, I had my camera out, and Dustin dropped to his knee to ask Rochelle to marry him. It was so sweet! :)
After the amazing proposal, we spent the day exploring Rhode Island and taking photos. :) It was such a fun day full of happy tears, joy, and laughter. I was so honored to be with them through it all. :)

Congratulations Dustin and Rochelle. I couldn’t be more happy for you two and I CANT WAIT to be apart of your special day!! <3

p.s fun fact: Dustin and Rochelle are the extremely talented ones who captured our wedding on a beautiful video.
