Bobby and Sarah first met when they were only six years old. They grew up in the same town and had several mutual friends but they didn’t really notice each other until their freshman year of college. A friendship began to develop over late-night bonfires and disc golf outings. At some point, the feelings they had for each other turned from platonic to romantic. While watching the fireworks on the Fourth of July in 2009 their affection for one another was officially ignited.
Bobby’s proposal was perfect. It was early September and the day was spent at the family cabin. After some four-wheeling around the lake and cleaning up the pontoon boat, Bobby convinced Sarah to go out for a ride just before sunset. They dropped anchor and snuggled up to watch the sun go down. Bobby diverted Sarah’s attention for a moment and when she turned around he was down on one knee.
It was short and sweet. He said “These have been the best five years of my life, will you spend the rest of it with me?”. Sarah’s response was along the lines of “Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god YES!”, and she then yelled “I’m getting married!” across the lake. They spent the rest of the evening star-gazing on the dock and being thankful they were together.
This was such a fun engagement shoot with these two! Jay Cooke State Park was absolutely gorgeous with the leaves changing and crisp fall breezes. Congratulations and I am looking forward to the wedding soon!
