On Wednesday, April 4th, I was so happy to get the chance to capture such a meaningful and important moment of these two wonderful people’s lives. Jake called me a few days prior to discuss details and I headed to Wichita mid-week for a sweet proposal by him to Jessica, who was completely oblivious of what was about to happen. The location has special meaning to them and of course now, it has a lot more meaning. I showed up early to scout out where I could hide so Jess wouldn’t see me and know something was up. After taking position, Jake made the call, telling her his truck was having issues and he needed her to come get him. I think Jake would agree with me that the wait was the worst!! Just watching him, you could tell he was nervous. It was too sweet. Once she showed up, they chatted for a while and then he popped the big question. I couldn’t hear what was being said, but from a distance, you could tell she was quite happy about what was taking place. He had a beautiful placeholder ring that he gave her in the moment, which was replaced three days later with the actual engagement ring. Thank you both for including me in that special moment. I am blessed by your friendships and look forward to watching you build your future together.
These last two pictures were taken a few days later while we were all at dinner and they show off Jessica’s actual engagement ring.
