David + Ashley | Houston Proposal

Ashley and David have a sweet romance unlike one I have seen in quite some time. Their love, adoration, and respect for one another goes above and beyond. Their love for Christ and the Church, keeping Him as the center of their relationship is contagious and you can just feel the love radiate off of them when they are together.


I was honored when I received David’s initial email interested in using Sarah Melyssa Photography to photograph the surprise engagement he was planning. After much planning and discussion, Saturday, February 13th came and it was time. With the help of my husband and Ashley’s brother Josh, we were able to effortlessly capture their proposal!  It took place at Hermann Park in Houston, Texas and all of Ashley and David’s family and their best friends were there to celebrate in the event!


We then took a few minutes after the proposal and a few family photos to step away and get some one on one photos of just the two of them.

It was, again, effortless. These two are naturals in front of the camera and you can just see the love and excitement they have for their future marriage!

We then came back and captured a few more family and friend photos and then sent them on their way to their dinner reservation to celebrate their engagement!

David and Ashley,

Cory and I wish you nothing but the best as you enter into this new journey in life together. We will be praying for you two and encouraging y’all along the way because marriage is the best and we truly believe that! God has an extremely amazing plan for the two of you and it is going to be great to see it unfold! Thank you for choosing Sarah Melyssa Photography for this special occasion!
