Surprise Proposal | South End, Charlotte | Allison & Evan

February 10, 2019

Thinking about proposing to your best friend? Why not hire a photographer! Evan and I went to high school together, go Class of 2011! For my Charlotte OG’s we went to Mallard Creek High School. It had been almost 8 years ago when Evan noticed I was a photographer in the area still! Evan messaged me saying he was about to propose to Allison in Charlotte, North Carolina and wanted me as his photographer! I was BEYOND excited but kept my cool when I showed up in South End. I pretended I was photographing buildings as the two of them strolled along the skyline! I’ll tell y’all, it was oddly warm that day. But that’s North Carolina for you! Evan said “I chose this spot because we broke up after a fight. We didn’t see each other for a while until we ran into one another right here!! We joke about it overtime we walk our dog Nigel!!” His tip for looking out for them was “Just look out for the hot blonde!!” I mean he wasn’t kidding.

I LOVED being part of this moment! Both of them were crying and I did too! Afterwards, they cheers champagne in South End, and announced the news to their friends at Friendsgiving Dinner! Evan & Allison had SUCH a beautiful moment during this surprise engagement proposal. Allison said she didn’t even realize I was there taking photos! They were both beyond ecstatic that Evan got a photographer to capture this moment. One of my favorite moments of this day was her ring!! Evan made the perfect choice in going to Brownlee Jewelers in Charlotte. I mean, who doesn’t love sapphire!? I cannot wait to be part of their wedding day in the future! Congratulations Evan & Alison!
