We’re super digging all the feels about getting in engaged here at Polka HQ, so September is “Proposal Month” for Polka Dot Groom. I am currently on the lookout for proposal shoots to feature on Polka Dot Bride during this time. They can be real or styled shoots – we’re not picky!
Take a look through your archives if you’re an industry vendor, OR did you have your OWN proposal captured? Feel free to submit via our submissions tool, through Matchology or send them directly to me at [email protected] for consideration.  I truly love a beginning, so you can bet I’m completely excited to see what you send my way! x Ms Rose
