Rose and Matt Allen’s Colorful Downtown Dallas Engagement Session


Documenting some of their most joyful, loving moments, this downtown Dallas engagement session captured by Mark and Emily Photography was the perfect way for Rose and Matt to announce their soon-to-be marriage. Accompanied by their dog, love-centered shots showing off their fun-loving sides were snapped to remember this special season of life they entered as two and will leave as one. The pair met on a number of occasions through mutual friends over the course of a few years. Each says they always felt sparks but never had alone time to find out if it could be something more. Finally, they arranged some time to spend one-on-one, and the two have never looked back. Timing has its own special way of being just perfect!


They happily spend as much time as they can together now that they are officially married! When Matt decided to pop the question, he planned with Rose’s mom and coordinated a parkside surprise complete with a romantic Christmas-themed set-up where he dropped to one knee and she, of course, said yes! They just tied the knot in early January of 2022 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and one of their favorite parts of the big day was how big a role their sweet pup was able to play. Her pictures were on table numbers, she was included in family photos, and wore her very own dress that matched the theme. We can’t wait to see photos of their dreamy wedding day soon, especially since its color palette promises a mood influenced by lilac, plum, antique gold, forest green, and midnight black. Read on for a note from the now-married Mrs. Allen for the full story of Matt’s proposal that led to this downtown Dallas engagement session. Cheers!



From the bride: “He coordinated with my mom, she told me that she wanted him and me to walk through a local park to take pictures for a Christmas card she was putting together. Before Matt and I went to the park, my mom and sister decorated a Christmasy looking pine tree with ornaments, my mom said “Oh look someone decorated a tree, go take a picture!” One of the ornaments said ‘Will You Marry Me’ with that day’s date (12/7/2019) and I turned to Matt to say ‘Why would someone just leave all of this here?’ That’s when I saw that he was on one knee with my ring. I was so surprised!”
