RJ + Alex | Proposal and Engagement

RJ + Alex | Proposal

Proposals have so much meaning to a couple, location seems to be the most important factor to most. What happens when one person is not expecting the proposal to happen?

RJ and Alex have the sweetest love. RJ contacted me and wanted to surprise Alex with a proposal photos, little did I know it was going to be full of smiles and tears.

Third Drop Coffee, formally Moxie’s, in Moorhead is where it all started for this couple. Naturally, it makes the perfect location to take the next steps!

RJ and some friends arrived early and set-up a rose pedal path leading up to a beautiful location.

Alex had no idea, as a friend was keeping her busy.

Not a dry eye in sight as RJ got down on her knees and pulled out a purple ring for Madelyn, Alex’s three year old daughter.

“Cause whenever I ask if I can marry her mom she says I have to marry her first and she says she wants a purple ring.”


Nothing makes me happier then being able to show true love between two people. The world is so full of hate. I just want to show true love and beautiful souls exist!


I was lucky enough to be able to photograph not only this beautiful couples surprise proposal but also their engagement.

We started out with a family session with Madelyn to get the giggles and smiles going. These two ladies really dislike having their photos taken. I try my best to get the couple to loosen up and forget that I am sneaking in on the special moments.

This sunset session is everything and more. When I think back on this session I feel my face hurting from the laughter and conversation.

Just before the sun completely went down, an outfit change was in order. They changed into their work uniforms and got a few photos of them together.


How adorable are these two? I can’t wait to photograph their September wedding!!
