It had become a common occurrence for them, picnicking on the beach. They would bring their charcuterie and wine and take in the sound of the crashing waves along with each other’s laughter; the epitome of a perfect afternoon. This time was just like all the others, until is wasn’t…
While they chatted and enjoyed their time together, his adrenaline pumped and his excitement grew. He had recently moved to California to be with her, so he pulled out a key to his apartment to give to her, and she was so elated. She thought her heart couldn’t handle the excitement, when he then held something shinier than a key in his hand: a sparkling diamond ring. As he sank to one knee, her heart floated out of her chest, realizing what was happening. She laughed as she noticed a photographer squatting to get shots of them, touched that her *fiancé* had gone to such lengths to capture this unforgettable moment in their story.
Daniella and Anthony’s engagement session was an absolute privilege to be a part of, and I absolutely loved how they wanted to be surrounded by our beautiful desert landscape! We ventured down winding paths, strolled by the water, and ended in front of gorgeous saguaros as the sunlight bathed their skin and created the most perfect glow. Daniella and Anthony, I am counting down the days until your I Do’s, and I can’t believe I get to be a part of it all! Your story is so beautiful and I can’t wait to witness the next chapter unfold, congratulations you guys!
