It was a regular Monday night, and the ring had been burning a hole in his pocket for about a week. Matt had originally planned to propose to Allie when they went to visit family in Indiana, but he just couldn’t wait anymore. He walked into the living room where Allie was hanging out and proposed to her then and there. She kept saying “what?! what?! what?!” as she was completely taken by surprise. Of course, she answered with a resounding YES!
I had so much fun walking around with Allie, Matt, and their dog Dundee, along the Charles River outside of Boston. It was a weird 75 degree day and just absolutely perfect! They met while going to school at Butler University, and now they’re working jobs they love in Boston and planning their wedding for next year!
Allie + Matt, thank you SO much for allowing me to photograph the two of you to celebrate your engagement! I’m so excited for you both!
