You are about to witness the happiest day (so far) of my life in photo form.

I must start by saying I hate being photographed, let alone publishing a zillion of my faces on our blog for the world to see.

Thank God for Molly and her mad skills at making me look half way decent. Literally, thank you, Lord.

But before you browse, I have to tell you a little about our story. : )

 (if you don’t already know, considering half the world knew before I did!)

My lovely Lance & I have been dating for about 5 1/2 years, and not once has he ever been able to keep a secret from me.

I always knew what he was getting me for my birthday and Christmas or where he was taking me out to dinner. He is so predictable.

But he/they tricked me this time! I had asked Miss Molly if she would do a small styled fair themed session of Lance and me last fall for

our 5 year anniversary since we met as the Darke County fair. Adorable, right? Well we didn’t make it happen, so when Molly decided to

finally start planning our carnival shoot in February,

I didn’t really read into it. When I started to get suspicious, they (the secret design team) would smooth it over with ease.

Lance acted totally not interested.

Much, much, much to my surprise, the shoot was Lance’s idea to cover up his proposal at the fairgrounds. You sneaky Lance.

Of course Molly went above and beyond and, with the help of some lovely people, pulled off this amazing shoot.

So as you peek, keep in mind I had no idea what was really happening until halfway through the shoot.

I hope you love it as much as I love him.

(that is.. well.. impossible.)
