Carly and Chet Got Engaged and We Were There To Capture It!

We’ve known Carly for a long time now dating back to her senior pictures about a decade ago and we LOVE her.  She’s Ally’s birthday twin and we’ve had a great friendship for years now.  She was last here in the studio with her now-fiancé Chet right before the pandemic started with all of their pets, and we liked Chet from our first time meeting him, so when he called Ally to say he wanted us to be there to photograph him popping the question to Carly we were thrilled!


We met Chet on location a week in advance in Clarkston to scope out the scene so we could be prepared and in the right spot – Carly had no clue.  We had it all planned out right down to the fake goodbye after the question and the photos when we actually headed straight to their house to get photos of family who flew in and surprised Carly again!  We were pretty pumped.

Carly & Chet Get Engaged

As for the engagement it happened on an EXTREMELY cold day and I was nervous Chet wasn’t going to get Carly to go for a walk – like why would you just “go for a walk” when it’s like 0 degrees?  Well he pulled it off and we were waiting in a nearby gazebo when they approached.  Chet took a knee at the end of the bridge right by us.  We watched the whole thing as Carly freaked out and then her surprise when she discovered it was us taking pics!  Just such an awesome moment.  Let’s get to the pics!

First – THE moment…

CarlySo amazing!


Think they’re happy?

Here’s some awesome behind the scenes while Carly was still on cloud nine from Facebook

We took a few more engagement pics of the happy couple – here’s three of them – first on the gazebo:


Back on the bridge:

And we’ll leave you with this one in black and white on a nearby bench…


LOVE it.

We wish them a life of happiness and we were so glad to be a part of that day!  We hope you enjoyed the highlights!

Boy meets girl…..

Boy courts girl through high school, college and several moves throughout thecountry. And then he enters a contest to win an incredibly beautifulengagement ring from Tapper’s Jewelry Store.

E and M have quite an amazing love story. It started back in high school (to know me is to know that I’m a sucker for couples that meet in highschool. These two actually DATED in high school. So cute!). You can read the whole story here.

Well…when we found out that E won the ring, we were asked how late we were going to be at the studio that evening. When we asked why and were given the answer, we JUMPED at the opportunity to photograph an engagement.

At 7:30, Tracie from Tapper’s came down to get us. We all but ran down the hallway (with our super excited 12 year old and 10 year olds in tow – they were almost as excited as we were!).

We walked into Tapper’s and waited while E and M were “interviewed” one last time. It was really a diversion tactic that E set up so that his whole family, M’s whole family and we could get down to the store to be able to photograph the question being popped.

The first kiss as fiancés.

When the door opened, and E and M came out, M saw every one around. E got down on one knee with an opened ringbox, and asked M to marry him.

I was teary, my daughter was teary, both moms were teary, E was teary….you get the picture! And ya know what? SO DID I!!!

This was such an incredible event to be a part of! There’s nothing like the beginning of something absolutely beautiful. Family, love and diamonds…. Does it get any better than that???

Many congratulations to you, E and M! We hope that you’re as happy for the rest of your lives as you are now! Thank you for letting us help you capture this amazing milestone in your lives!
