Shaji & Tracey - Proposal

Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends. I'm SO excited to share a post about a special event I had the chance to photograph this past weekend. When Shaji told me he was going to propose to Tracey, I couldn't contain my excitement. You see, I have known Shaji & Tracey both for a little over 10 years now. While serving at church, I got to get to know the two of these wonderful people individually and they both became like a little brother & sister to me. Shaji, Tracey, and I played volleyball together, performed countless amounts of dances with the Garland/Mesquite/Sunnyvale crew, and volunteered at church for so many events that I can't even keep track. Although Tracey always accuses me of things I won't name out on this blog....I have tons of love for her and I will continue to squishy hug her even when I'm an old lady. If it wasn't for Shaj I wouldn't be in the ever so elite pizza club that I'm blessed to be a part of today. Seriously, Shaji started a club where all we do is go eat pizza at different places....lol.  Shaji even helped hold the door for me as I walked down the aisle on my wedding day. When I think of these two people, my heart beams with happiness. When I think of the two of them deciding to commit to each other for the rest of their lives, I am overjoyed. 

Shaji wanted to propose to Tracey at UTD because they share some memories there. With the help of their siblings, Shaji arranged for a gazebo to be beautifully decorated. He brought Tracey to the gazebo...but I'll admit it looked like he kidnapped her because she was blindfolded, haha :) I'll spare all the details of the proposal but I'll just say that it was absolutely beautiful to see how patiently the two of these people waited for this particular moment. Shaji & Tracey, I couldn't be happier for you two and can't wait to celebrate your love on your big day! Take a peek at some of my favorites from their proposal:
