Houston St. John | Remembered

Houston St. John – June 2013

We at Kdog were extremely sad to hear about the tragic passing of young Houston St. John this week.  We were SO lucky to get to meet him and to enjoy his talents.  It saddens me and impresses me to know how many lives he touched in his short life.  He was truly special.  My heart goes out to his family, about whom I have been thinking since receiving the terrible news, and to all of his friends, of which there are MANY (including my daughter).  Houston will be greatly missed and so joyfully remembered.

Sam + Ben | Proposal

Who: Samantha & Ben     What: Surprise Proposal     When: September 6, 2013     Where: Loose Park     Photographer: Rachel Meiring

Back Story: Sam and Ben have known each other since they were toddlers.  They have been “together” for over six years. Sam has been wanting Ben to do a “couples” photo shoot, and Ben has resisted. When Ben decided he was ready to propose, he thought surprising Sam with a photo shoot – which she has ALWAYS wanted – would be a good cover.

She was SO excited that he finally gave in.

I knew what was coming; Ben was quite nervous, though holding it together quite well; Sam had no idea.

Halfway through the shoot, up in the trees at Loose Park, I uttered the agreed-upon code, and Ben went down on one knee.  The rest is history.

CONGRATS to Ben and Sam and THANK YOU for letting me be a part of your very special day.  Truly.

And there was more . . . .  Sam’s last surprise was that Ben arranged to have her family there to celebrate with them.  (Their luggage was lost in transit, but arrived later that weekend.)  Sam hadn’t seen her mom in over 5 months.  She was THRILLED.

Thanks!  :-)
