Because She Said Yes...

One of the first things I heard after Steven proposed to Hillary was "Oooohhh, do I get a blog post?!" Yes, because you said yes.

It's quite possible that in the world of blogs that surround Hillary McChristian's life, I might not be the first blog to report her engagement, but I am the first with pictures of the pop-the-question moment, along with a couple quick portraits, in the rain, of her big moment.

About a month ago, Hailey Hinz (the bride-to-be's wonderfully fabulous sister) called me and told me that Steven had just had "THE talk" with their dad. I told her that she needed to have him call me because moments like this need to be captured. Then, he and I coordinated schedules and worked out some details - he let me know that even if it rains, there would be no change in plans. Well, it rained. And they showed up just the same! As the rain poured down on me (I need to invent a camera bag that has a built in umbrella) I got to witness one of the most special moments in Hillary McChristian's life. Man, I love my job.

On with the picture show!

Talk to you soon,
