Surprise Dallas Proposal and Engagement Shoot: Troy & Robert
It didn’t take long for Troy to realize that Robert was the person with whom he wanted to spend the rest of his life. Meeting him was like starting to gather pieces of a puzzle that would one day be the first day of the rest of their lives together.
Planning the proposal and engagement session was special and magical for Troy. Dallas has a special place in both of Troy and Robert’s hearts. Robert’s best friend lives in Dallas and acted as Troy’s special agent. She helped create the illusion that would lure Robert to Dallas for a “birthday weekend.”
Troy and Robert share everything – the same music accounts, the same emails and same search engines. So, to hide any ideas of the proposal, Troy had to be very sneaky. He masked his search history by creating additional retail accounts so Robert wouldn’t see it. He purchased decorations, tools and lights and had everything shipped directly to his friend in Dallas so Robert would never know.
The last stop of the day was a beautiful park in the heart of Dallas. Troy told Robert that the photographer had requested special suits for the last pictures. They dressed in the middle of a park, behind a tree! They went for their couple pictures, and after four or five, Troy asked Robert to take a funny picture with him. He knelt down to one knee and Robert pretended to be shocked. At least, he pretended until Robert pulled a ring box out of his sock and opened it. Troy asked if Robert would spend the rest of his life with him, and he said yes.
Robert yelled out, “HE SAID YES,” which seemed to echo through the park. Suddenly, their family came running around the corner with a sign that said, “He said yes.” Robert was shocked and started to cry. Seeing him so happy made Troy realize even more how much he wanted to see that smile every day.
