How They Asked
I and Ben are photographers from Northern California and we planned a trip to Yosemite with another photographer couple to do some styled-photos up there. About a month prior, he had me get my nails done at a salon with my sister and he went over to my house to ask my father for his blessing and my mother to make a handcrafted engagement ring with our initials inside. We left for the trip Monday and started our way down. On the way, we stopped at Goodwill and found the dress I wore for 15$!! We arrived at Glacier Point in Yosemite early morning Tuesday, got dressed, and went out to the photo location. We started messing around and taking some photos together and then Ben went over to his camera bag and grabbed a ring and a notebook, he came back, started to read from his notebook and then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was perfect. Best day of my life.
