My friend and classmate Andy Jones sent me an e-mail on Facebook a few weeks back asking if I would like to take photos of him as he proposed to his girlfriend Karen. I told him I would be delighted. We set about to arrange the surprise. Andy decided he would propose after a romantic picnic in Lullwater Park near Emory. I was given heads up on when and where the picnic would take place. I even had the chance to give Andy a bit of advice when he told me he was nervous about proposing.
After determining that Andy's nerves were getting the best of him, not because he was afraid Karen would say "No," but because he was afraid he "wouldn't do it right," I told him as long as he did it like Andy, she would be delighted.
He did it just like Andy, and Karen was delighted. As you can see in the following photos.
Karen has no idea what is about to happen.
Andy gets down on one knee to pop the question.
Karen says Yes!
