Surprise engagements aren't always surprises but they do typically end up in the same giddy way. Surprise or no, choosing love and adventure - just doing life - with your person is always exciting. Whether you've talked about it for years, idly contemplated it at 4 AM, we're talking next level (cue the Mario Brothers sound effects) maneuvers here. Sidebar: I have a friend who randomly decided to propose in the wee hours of a morning but his sleepy girlfriend told him to talk to her about whatever it was in a couple of years... so he waited... and they are in fact now married. 

Canon planned to build his proposal into a photo session with his then girlfriend Tashina... but she got wise when a friend tipped her off about the idea... and he might not have been so subtle about suggesting she get her nails done. Along with removing that dang black hair elastic from your wrist, I do suggest manicure loving folk get their nails tended to before a photo session - if it's your thing, raggedy fingertips in the finished images are likely to make you bonkers, regardless of whether you've got a new ring inbound. Of course, if you could care less about your nails, please ignore the idea whole heartedly and with gusto. To each their complete own.

But that look on her face when he does ask says it all. Congrats again, lovebirds! Also, the award for most epic chest bump with nary a wardrobe malfunction definitely goes to this lady.
