A Capitol Engagement
by Jamie Canter on March 16th, 2016

We were so excited when Sam contacted us to photograph his engagement to Mackenzie. His plan was to ask her in the middle of the rotunda in the Texas Capitol. He told her they had a party to attend and where meeting some friends there. He confessed on the way in that there wasn't a party but I don't think she knew his plan was to propose to her!  He asked her in the middle of the room, surrounded by people, family (unbeknownst to her) and me.  He got down on one knee and when she said yes and they embraced, everyone started clapping. It was such a magical moment to capture forever and they now have pictures of that special moment to remind them of the emotions every time they look at them.  After the proposal, her family, who was watching from a floor above, came down and congratulated them.  We took pictures outside with the Capitol behind them and then at the Visitor's Center, where they met.  What an amazing night!

Here is the progression of the night.  The first photo is right after they arrived.  They stopped in the middle where Sam began his speech. I don't think she has any idea right now because she is fixing his collar.
She definitely knew now!
Both of their parents are watching above, taking video and pictures.
She said YES! And promptly burst into happy tears.
Everyone started clapping and cheering!
The Happy Couple!
