- Wedding: June 2016
After giving up hope that my boyfriend of six years would ever propose, he finally popped the question last Thursday in a surprise proposal! I had no idea he even had the ring. He’s been bugging me for months to take some nice pictures of us with the NYC skyline in the background since we are moving to the ‘burbs soon. I’ve been putting it off because I hate having my picture taken. He texted me last Thursday afternoon while we were both at work and asked if we could please just do it so he could quit bugging me, so I relented. Then, of course, acted like a brat about it. We put on coordinating outfits and took some photos in one spot, then he asked if we could try another place. I was not happy. It was taking him forever to set up the camera on the tripod and get the right angle and lighting, and I was standing there like a fool. I kept saying how annoyed I was and that it was embarassing because people were around watching us. He finally pushed the button and came and stood by me, but the light wasn’t going off to say it was counting down to take the photo. I got even more annoyed that he didn’t know how to work the camera and told him to go fix it so we could get it over with. Then…he got down on one knee! He had the camera on video so it filmed the whole proposal. You can’t hear us talking but you can hear people clapping in the background, which I totally didn’t realize happened until we watched the video. He said it was perfect because he loves getting me a little bit pissed off because I’m “cute when I’m mad.” Enough rambling–here are pictures!
