Josh and Shandell were one of the sweetest couples I have had the pleasure of meeting. They have done the long distance thing for most of their relationship with Shandell living in Las Vegas and Josh Living in Ogden. The distance has made these hearts grow fonder and watching them together was a joy.
When I talked with Josh he suggested shooting their engagements at the Ogden Botanical Gardens the location that he proposed to Shandell. One evening while taking a walk along the 9.5 mile trail Josh and Shandell “stumbled” upon a bench decorated with balloons. Josh suggested that Shandell take a look and see what it was all about. After some prodding Shandell conceded and went over the bench. (She didn’t believe it was for her.) In addition to the balloons there was a card with one thing Josh loved about her. There were six more benches like this each with a note explaining something Josh loved about his future bride. When they arrived at the last bench Josh took Shandell aside got down one knee and asked her to be his wife. She said “Yes!”.
