I was so excited when my cousin’s girlfriend, Emily asked me to take some cute photos of them for a Christmas card this past December. Little did she know, Zach was planning to propose during our photo shoot! Zach didn’t exactly let me in on his secret plan, but I figured it out as soon as he told me we needed to schedule the shoot around a certain date because something that he bought as a surprise for Emily hadn’t come in yet. We walked around Amherst State Park with their dog, Nala, and took some portraits before heading into the woods. Zach had Emily turn around as he put a Christmas sweater on the dog with a tag that said “will you marry dad?” It was such a sweet moment + I am SO happy to have been part of it!!
