It is always nice when a couple knows exactly where they want to start their engagement session. Alyssa was sure about meeting in front of the iconic Bellingham ivy heart. It still amazes me how many times I drove by this spot in the 14 years I have lived here and never noticed it until about three years ago. What a fun night for a session, lots of laughs, lots of kissing, and a handful of silliness. The best part is after about the first 15 minutes when the couple starts to relax in front of the camera and let their personalities come out.
I am a sucker for engagement stories, so I asked them to share theirs with me and this is what Alyssa said, “Jeffrey and I were decorating our house for our Halloween party, had one of our favorite 50′s & 60′s radio stations on, “Ain’t No Sunshine” came on and Jeffrey asked me to slow dance, which actually wasn’t out of the ordinary, we dance in our living room on occasion. He was telling me how much he loves me and asked me to marry him…but I still wasn’t quite sure it was actually happening because we had just talked about marriage earlier that day. And when he reached around to his back pocket to pull out the ring, I knew he was serious!! He got down on one knee and asked again and I said YES!! (Actually I think I first said something like “Are you serious?!?” but definitely said yes!!!)”
