I’m so excited to share Brandon and Ashley’s Orlando Engagement shoot! They met by chance through mutual friends at the oyster pub at Daytona Beach in 2009. Brandon was fresh out of boot camp and on a date with another girl. A few days later he reached out to Ashley online and the rest is history.
How did he propose?
We got engaged in December of 2014. We were about to celebrate our 5th anniversary I had begun questioning him about it. At the time I was in my first semester of nursing school. He had planned a day to go to ICE at Gaylord Palms with my mom and dad, along with my friend Meghan. I didn’t think anything of it just that we had plans to go.
By the way, he had totally convinced me we shouldn’t get engaged until after nursing school. He was acting really funny all the way there. We were walking through the exhibit and when we got to the sugar plum fairies my dad asked me to take off the jacket to take a nice picture the two of us. It’s 9 degrees in there so I was like “heck no.”
Eventually they got me to take it off and as soon as I turned around Brandon got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I don’t remember anything he said. What I do know is that I just started balling, and of course I said yes!
This couple is so adorable! I had such a fun time at their engagement session. Hope you all enjoy their rustic outdoors shoot as much as I do!
