I’ve been good friends with Ashley and Tyler for several years now. Ashley has helped me film many weddings and is one of the most talented creative people that I know. Two months ago Tyler called me and announced he was ready to propose, and he wanted my help. On June 8, Ashley would be taking photos of her friends Skyler and Brad, all over Dallas. Tyler hijacked their photo-shoot and had them tell Ashley they also wanted photos taken at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens.
I arrived with Tyler at the gardens at 10am, with the expectation of Ashley arriving anywhere from 11am-1pm. Well, she had a lot of creative inspiration during her photo-shoot and didn’t end up arriving until 1:30. This was actually beneficial because I had a lot of time to interview Tyler about his story leading up to the proposal.
After many secretive phone calls and text messages between Tyler and Brad, Ashley finally arrived at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens. Brad and Skyler told her how much they wanted to take pictures in one place, and when Ashley walked around the corner, Tyler was there waiting for her. You can see from the film that she was completely taken by surprise. This was easily one of the best proposals I have ever filmed, and I expect to film their wedding in a few months.
