Ronnie called me with an extra special request, he said he and his girlfriend Kelly would be driving through Amarillo on a road trip from Austin and he was planning to propose at the Cadillac Ranch. They were doing a contest to see who could do the best patriotic drawing on the Cadillac. He wanted me there to capture the event, and it was AMAZING!!
I had to guess which couple was them, since I had not met them before, luckily there were lots of people out there so Kelly wasn’t suspicious of the fact that I was taking pictures of them. It was so much fun to watch how great of a time she was having getting into her piece of art, as he was right behind her writing will you marry me on his Cadillac. I was so nervous for him I had butterflies in my stomach, I can only image his range of emotions!
People at the Cadillac Ranch started noticing what he was doing and I over heard a guy say, “is this really happening?!” as a group of people gathered to cheer as Kelly walked around to see the words written on Ronnie’s Cadillac “Will you marry me?” She was so shocked and happy as she said “YES!”
This was one of those days where I know I have the best job in the world to be able to be a part of such special moments in people lives. I am so happy I was able to do this session for Kelly and Ronnie!!! Congratulations!!!
