Tis the season for proposals! It was barely a week ago that I photographed a proposal in Atlanta, and now I’m doing it all over again with a romantic proposal at Washington Park!

About Izra’el and Madison

Izzy and Madison are one of those power couples that everyone loves and roots for. My husband and I were always teasing Izzy about when he was going to propose. We were completely ecstatic when he approached us about doing it! I immediately offered to be there and photograph it and we also offered our house as an engagement after party. The proposal took place at Washington Park in Downtown Macon. A few friends set everything up while Izzy picked up Madison. The plan was for them to meet a friend at his apartment to “apartment hunt” but a text from the friend said he was at the park and to meet him there. When they approached the stairs, Madison was greeted with the sweetest surprise!

The Proposal

We were all hiding behind trees as Izzy poured his heart out to Madison. I peered out of my hiding spot to photograph when he got down on his knee, and she immediately said yes! It was so sweet to be a part of!

After the proposal, I hugged Madison and said, “I had to go home and feed my kids dinner”, which wasn’t a lie. I just didn’t include the part that she would be there eating pizza with us, along with 30 of their other close friends to celebrate their new engagement! I ran and got the pizza, brought it back to a beautifully decorated house, (thanks to her sweet friends), and we waited for their arrival.

The After Party

We are so happy for both Izzy and Madison and can’t wait for the wedding!
