Fresno Proposal

Fresno proposal by wedding photographer Ashley Norton Photography

There’s nothing quite as magical as capturing love stories, especially those that have been nourished and cherished over time. Let me share with you the story of Danielle and Rafael’s proposal, which took place in the heart of Fresno. This wonderful couple has been together for an impressive seven years, a testament to their unwavering devotion to one another. Danielle and I go a long way back, having known each other since our high school days. So, when Rafael approached me with his beautiful plan to propose, I was honored to be a part of their special moment.

Rafael’s proposal plan was breathtaking in nostalgia. He wanted to surprise Danielle by taking her back to the park where their love journey began seven years ago when they went on their first date.

As the day of his proposal came around, he arranged for a lovely picnic. They enjoyed their mealtime and the excitement built. With each moment, the air grew thick with anticipation.

That’s when Rafael pulled out a ring, ready to ask Danielle to spend forever with him. But, in a delightful twist, Danielle, seemingly impromptu and with a touch of humor, pulled out her own ring, along with an Uno reverse card! The joy and laughter in the park were infectious, capturing the essence of their passionate and playful relationship.
