How We Met
Long story short we met at Ashland University and reconnected at Camp Hamwi!
How They Asked
We decided we wanted to get photos done while on vacation because we mostly dated during a pandemic. Anthony told me he hired a photographer so we knew the photos would turn out. We made our way to meet the photographer as I told Anthony not to dare fake a proposal to be funny during our photoshoot. He laughed and reassured me that he wouldn’t do such a thing. We met with the photographer and began the shoot. After many extremely awkward poses, I asked Anthony if he was okay and he whispered “this is awkward” little did I know he was nervously carrying a ring in his pocket and the photographer was covering up his nervousness with cheesy poses.
We made our way down to the ocean. Our photographer took us on a ledge beside the saltwater pool and the ocean. Las Rocas (meaning on the rocks). She had me stand facing her and had Anthony walk behind me. She wanted to get a photo of Anthony walking up and hugging me.
She “tested” the lighting for a few minutes and told me that the lighting was off. I was getting skeptical of her skills as she told me to turn around that the lighting would be better. As I turned around Anthony was down on one knee. The waves crashing against the rocks and my heart pounding in my chest. I jumped and screamed then continued to jump until I said yes!
