As promised, I want to take a moment to share the amazing images of Olivier's proposal to Marie-Helene, as captured by the incomparable John Michael Cooper of AltF Photography.

In many ways, setting the scene for a proposal is much like designing a wedding.  You need to get to know those that are embracing the moment and sharing the experience.  And so, as with all of the couples I work with, I began by trying to get to know Olivier and, by proxy, Marie-Helene. 

What I came to find were two people deeply committed to family and raising their children.  This is a couple deeply in love and committed to the often-overlooked nuances of old-world romance.  They keep a journal together, regularly trade love notes, and have adopted a small piece of a French love song as their personal anthem.

With floral and decor provided by none other than Naakiti Floral the room was set and dressed to perfection.  Marie-Helene was truly stunned as she entered the room, and the jubilance that these two shared in those moments of engagement is evident in every frame shot!

Working with Olivier was a dream, and I am thrilled that I am able to share a part of their story with you.

Congratulations & A Lifetime of Love to you both!

Always...
