Niagra Falls Proposal | Sam + Tom’s Highland Park Engagement Session

It was September 2010. Sam was a California native and Tom had roots in upstate New York. The two left their homes and headed off to Orlando, Florida with plans to participate in the Disney College Program.


Tom went to meet some friends out after work and met a stunning Samantha instead. Sam, at the time, could care less about Tom. She was single and did not have the idea of a relationship or guys on the brain. However after three months of Toms persistent attempts, Sam agreed to go on a date.

Young and broke, Tom was not about to mess this date up. He decided to splurge on her and the couple headed to a local steakhouse. They still joke to this day, their male server had a huge crush on Tom and made it pretty obvious he was interested if Samantha wasn’t. Starving, Tom was relieved to see their meals arrive, only to find his portion size was enough for the first course. He laughed it off and continued with the evening. Filled with spontaneity, he did not disappoint. On the drive home the two noticed a run down amusement park and could not resist. They pulled over and spent time riding the sling-shot.

When the time came, he was on the same page as Sam, he forgot everything he practiced and can’t remember himself what he said.
