My Photo Booth Marriage Proposal


Being that I consider everyone here at My Modern Met like part of my family, I wanted to share with you all a very special moment of my life. Last Thursday, I proposed to my girlfriend of three years inside a photo booth at Ace Hotel, Palm Springs.

After racking my brain for months, I finally decided to propose this way because I could A) Surprise my girlfriend B) Capture her real emotion and C) For years to come, have those photos be a wonderful reminder of how happy we were that day.

I’m thrilled to report that she said “Yes!” Can’t wait to start my new life with my future wife. Cheers!
