The phone rang and it was not a call I had been expecting.  It was Nick asking for my daughters hand in marriage. O M G! Super excitement! He said he would be asking her in the next two weeks - TWO WEEKS I can't hold this in for two weeks that's like f o r e v e r!   Luckily he asked her two days later.   I have to say if I had spoken to Ella beforehand, well lets just say I may have blown it for sure!  Hamilton Gardens was the location for their engagement shoot and what a venue!  So many different areas to photograph this loved up couple! I am so proud of To View More >>
