Matt + Kelly | Miami Proposal

I LOVE photographing proposals!! But what I love even more is capturing close friend's proposals!!

Kelly and Matt had been planning to come visit us for months so during that time, Matt and I started scheming away. I've known Kelly for almost 9 years. She's also a photographer and we've had our share of fun photoshoots together so Matt and I figured this would just be another one for the books, but with a very important question attached ;)

It was a very hot day in Miami, but thankfully beautiful out and no rain! We explored the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and I highly anticipated the moment Matt would say "zucchini". Why? Well, that was the key word for me to listen out for so I'd know he was ready to pop the question. He informed me ahead of time that "zucchini" is their little inside joke so it was the perfect undercover code word!

He said "zucchini" to get her laughing, my heart started pounding with excitement, she went on to explain the inside joke to me and then Matt went down to his knee. As you can see, she said YES! and embraced him in the most loving way.

I think this photoshoot goes down as the best one our friendship has seen! Not sure how we'll top it, but no doubt we'll give it a whirl over the years.
