Meet Matt & Izzie! Basically the two coolest people on the earth. It is quite possible that we are addicted to their friendship. We just never get tired of hanging out and doing life with them! Their love for each other is so genuine and beautiful…and even more so, their love for the Lord! They challenge us in so many ways, and we are counting down the days until they get to say “I do” and start the awesome adventure of marriage together!
When Matt told Addison that he wanted to propose to Izzie, we knew that a “just-because-you’re-our-friends” photo shoot would be the perfect cover.
I texted Izzie a load of bologna about how Addison wanted more practice leading a shoot and that it would be a huge help if they modeled for us while I walk him through step-by-step. Of course, she was all for it, and I felt quite proud of my sneakiness! Here was her response:
HA! She was shocked when Matt agreed without any begging…but that didn’t tip her off whatsoever. (Whew!)
When the day finally came, it was blistering cold and the skies were grey. The night before, Izzie texted me as snow was coming down. I told her that we were still going to brave the cold if she was okay with that. (We were not going to to let a little precipitation keep us from making this moment happen!)
We shot for a about an hour or so until it was time. I got the signal to say the key phrase, “Matt, why don’t you pick out this next pose?”. Follow the pictures to see Izzie’s confusion, and what happened next…
HE PUT A RING ON IT!!
Her “YOU KNEW?!” face.
Best. Day. Ever. We couldn’t feel more blessed to have shared in this beautiful moment with some of our closest friends! What a treasure! August couldn’t come sooner.
(Psssstt…Leave some love for these two in the comments.)
