Jordan & Stacie

Once upon a time,
A boy fell in love with a girl…

5 years & 2 kids later and even more in love than ever.

To this day, this is still one of my favorite engagement shoots.
These two ooze love and laughter.

A Vineyard Proposal

About a year and a half ago I got a call mid morning.
Jorden was wanting to propose to his girlfriend that afternoon at a winery in Dundee and was in need of a photographer to capture the surprise.
Im a sucker for a good proposal, so of course I agreed.

I set up my bunker just on the other side of a row of grapes. I had the perfect little opening to stick my lens through.
I waited.
I could hear my heart pounding.
My breath sounded like an engine revving.
I was convinced I was going to blow the whole operation.

The vineyard car pulled up right in front of me.
Jorden and Chelsea got out and made their way to a “complementary” table with wine set up in the field.

You could hear a helicopter in the distance approaching.
That was his cue.
Jorden took a knee.


A Disney Proposal

Three years ago my little brother proposed to the girl of his dreams.
Emma went to school at Vanguard University in Southern California so her family frequented Disneyland whenever they would come down to visit. Spring Break 2014 was no different. Little did she know, her life would change forever.
My brother had been working on his surprise proposal for months, conspiring with Emma’s family, making necessary arrangements, printing t-shirts… every detail had to be perfect!
We arrived in Anaheim the day before. We had to hibernate in the hotel to avoid being accidentally spotted. Emma’s parents were the only ones who knew we were all there… waiting.
The morning of the proposal we threw on our shirts and rushed out the door. We kept close tabs on Emma’s whereabouts with her Dad. We ran through the park and to the other side of the castle. Everyones hearts were beating. We hid just out of sight.
Then we got the txt. “Where here and headed to the castle”. Emma’s Dad lined his family up for a picture with the castle in the background.
We made our move.
We shoved our way through the crowd.
We lined up.
“Will” “You” “Marry” “My Studly Uncle”
Mark took a knee.
“Emma!”
She turned around and….
The crowd cheered!!!

SHE SAID YES!

Mark and Emma are coming up on two years of marriage this summer.
Im so thankful that I was able to be a part of such a wonderful surprise!
