They are getting married in July and they have one of the cutest engagement stories. The cute that makes you say "AWWWW" with that pitch in your voice. You know what I'm talkin about.
Danielle ( like most brides who are anticipating when and how their boyfriends are going to ask) thought she had it all figured out and even sent a text message to all her close friends saying "today is the day". They were going out to a nice restaraunt that ended up being closed, and that was the start of all of her plans that didn't come into exsistense. Her heart fell with each dissapointment and she called off the "text" to her friends. Steven suggested that they go and look at some puppies they were considering buying and when they arrived, (it was all planned out with her mom hiding around the corner too) the 'puppy lady' handed the brown lab-mix to Steven who in turn handed it to Danielle and said " doesn't it have a nice collar?" She was thinking to herself, 'who cares about the collar' but when she turned it around she saw a beautiful diamond ring and Steven properly popped the question in between puppy licks.
They bought the puppy and of course, she said "YES!" I didn't get to meet Leroy but I hear he is a fabulous addition to the new family.
I love this shot. Piedmont Park has a brilliant playground. I love this little boy checking them out.
Danielle is stunning. You would never guess that she was uncomfortable in front of the camera in the beginning. She is an example of how CONNECTING WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER is critical to great images. ( shameless plug but it's true )
