Ben & Amanda { A Proposal } | Northwest Arkansas Engagement Photography

Today, we offer our sincerest congratulations and well-wishes to Ben and Amanda. Yesterday, Ben took Amanda for a little stroll around Crystal Bridges. She thought they were meeting some friends there. Little did she know that the "friends rendezvous" was just a ploy to get her to a scenic part of the trails surrounding the museum so that Ben could ask her a very important question. 

This is the second proposal we've had the privilege of documenting and let me tell you, it's a FUN experience. I don't know if it's all the sneaking around and hiding in the bushes, the location scouting, the logistical planning, or just the overwhelming anticipation of witnessing such a heartfelt and memorable moment...whatever it is, it's awesome. And today, I'm excited to share this memorable moment in images. Special thanks to the rain for holding off long enough for Ben to stick to "Plan A"...especially since he didn't quite have a "Plan B". :)

Shhhh. Here they come.

First time to Crystal Bridges trails so they decide to take a "selfie". Little does Amanda know that her FIRST time to Crystal Bridges will probably be her FAVORITE time to Crystal Bridges.

For a minute, I thought Amanda spotted me so I whirled around and began photographing everything BUT her...including this tree.

And now, a few portraits with the newly engaged couple. I told them to take a few minutes for themselves.

The yellow tree came in handy after all.
