John asked Michelle out on Valentine's Day. They had been co-workers for a while, and he had finally decided to ask her on a date. It was only fitting that the proposal would happen on their anniversary: Valentine's Day! They were in Las Vegas to celebrate their anniversary, but Michelle could tell something was different because of how funny John was acting. Her instinct was right because on Valentine's Day morning, he got down on one knee and proposed.
When I met John and Michelle at their engagement session, I could immediately see the connection between them. Whenever I told them to look at each other, they would burst out in giggles. I was especially excited for their engagement location: the Ambassador Mansion. It used to be a wedding venue, but was turned into a private apartment complex. The Ambassador Mansion was always a dream wedding venue for me to shoot at, so I was sad when I heard it wasn't available for weddings anymore. Thank you Michelle and John for giving me the opportunity to shoot here, and congrats on your engagement!
