Secret Engagement: Raymond and Gabbie

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] love love. I really don’t think I tell you guys enough how much love makes me giggle inside. You can only imagine how excited I am that I get to be a part of things that involve love. So when my good friend Raymond came to me about surprising Gabbie, his now fiance with her ring, I got way excited. Like… Over 9,000 watts of “OMG YASSS!” You guys ready for the cutest first secret engagement I’ve shot of 2016?

Secret Engagement: Gabbie and Raymond

It was the morning of Anime Central, the very first day. Raymond had agreed to get Gabbie up early in the morning for her to prepare herself for a photoshoot. What made this cute is that Raymond is never the one to initiate a photoshoot. He’s always giggling and being silly because that’s who he is naturally. Today, he was all smiling and cooperating because he knew that this was the day that there was something more. 

On the flipside, someone was a little more on the silly side.

In seconds, Ray had disappeared to “give Gabbie a couple shots by herself.”

If you guys didn’t know already.. Gabbie is a master makeup artist. I did a Fan Girl Friday on her a while back. Her pinup looks are too DIE for. You can check the rest of her looks out on Facebook and Instagram.  So anyway, Raymond comes back out.. tells Gabbie to close her eyes and when she does, he slowly gets down on one knee. I’m telling you guys, this secret engagement gets so much more precious so quickly.


You know what else, guys? I had to spoil the ending but… She said yes!!

Isn’t that beautiful! Crossing my fingers for her to change her mind on me not being her photographer just because I’m also a bridesmaid in her wedding! I couldn’t be more proud of Raymond for tying the knot.

    Your pictures are beautiful! And your friend who was surprised with the secret engagement is gorgeous and a natural!
    The surprise engagement was absolutely awesome! You got amazing shots! My two favorite ones are the one with her hands behind her back and her hands over her mouth when her fiancé was on one knee.
