Cotton Candy skies, Sweet Details, many tears.. on a One Year Anniversary happened a proposal that will absolutely blow you away.
He's got the heart of a romantic, and she's the luckiest woman in the world.
When Dave contacted me to tell me about his plans for their 1 Year Anniversary..I knew this would be an amazing experience to get to capture, and I was more than right.
I was completely blown away.
Real candles, Torches, photos of their year together and many more details were set up everywhere. That night, he took her out to dinner, and then for a walk in the park, eventually leading her down a path marked by candles right to the spot he chose to propose.
As soon as she realized what was happening, tears poured down her face and as I watched Claudia cry of joy and surprise, I found myself trying not to shake as I started crying too!!
He got down on one knee, and asked the question every girl dreams of hearing from their one true love. And she said YES!
He held her hand and showed every little detail he put together for this night, and as she swooned we did too.
So they begin their journey..
Claudia and Dave, I'm so thankful and honoured to have been a part of this special day of your lives, and I can't wait to see you guys continue to walk together all the days of your life, shining brightly of a love that can only be heaven-sent, and glorifies the One who blessed you both with that love.
I really have no other words to even explain this beautiful night, so I'll let the photos talk..

as the poets say.”

Love, Romance, Cityscape & Sunsets.
The perfect evening getting to capture these two and their love for one another.
Shooting by the water was perfect, because when I thought of how I'd describe a little of each of them, I thought of the sea when it's calm, when the sun is setting and everything is the softest hues of gold and deep reds.
Even though as a general rule, it seems that opposites attract, and these two are different here and there, but for the most part, they are totally in sync. Andreea is a sweetheart, and Aneel is her sidekick who cracks the occasional jokes (really good ones too) and they're both easy-going and so fun to be around!
Together, they remind me of the calm you feel when you watch the sun set into the sea. They're different, but work so perfectly together that it seems like they've been together from the beginning of time, and (I love sunsets so..) like the beauty and peace of the sun setting over the sea, it should never end.
"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends."
1 Corinthians 13
Well, this Engagement Session was just surreal. We caught golden hour at every stage of its glory and it I can'tttt handle it.
Photographing Kimberly and Dave was awesome, I am so so excited for their Wedding this fall and getting to photograph them again!
They are the sweetest couple, reflecting the glory of God so fully through not only their characters but also their relationship. It's so clear to see that they love and admire one another in a rare, gloriously beautiful way.
So, here are a few peeks at their Engagement Session in full-on Golden Hour!
