San Juan Capistrano Mission Engagement Photography: Michael loves Vanessa

The first day that Michael saw Vanessa, he thought she was beautiful. They were both in the youth ministry at St. Madeleine’s Catholic Church. But if he had any hopes of becoming friends with Vanessa, they soon ended, when he went to her house to work on a project. Vanessa’s puppy Trucky got scared, ran backwards, and hurt himself. Vanessa blamed Michael and she wanted him gone. He stayed away…for a while anyway. At least they were friends.
Two years would pass before Vanessa would have to really work with Michael again. He was in RCIA, becoming a Catholic. Vanessa was his Faith Formation Coordinator. While she was leading him towards faith. He was leading her heart.
Michael finally asked Vanessa out… except that what was supposed to be a date to the Aquarium of the Pacific, ended up being a family outing. Vanessa invited her sister and cousins to also go. Their first kiss would be at the end of the night.
Proof that they were meant together happened when they were apart. The Air Force deployed Michael to Texas. Vanessa missed him and she knew then she could not be apart from him. His parents invited her to go up for a visit. She surprised Michael whose prayers of seeing her had worked. Together they were meant to be.
Fast forward to a hike to the Hollywood Sign… or at least part of the way there. Vanessa was hot, tired and hungry and she did not want to take another step. Neither did Trucky who was with them. Michael insisted they just go up a little farther and around the bend. After some convincing, Vanessa went. Michael had barely uttered the words, “Just like it took us a lot of trouble to get here…,” a tour bus pulled up. Vanessa stopped listening to Michael and instead turned her attention to the tour guide who was explain their location and the history of California. The tour bus finally left and Vanessa turned to Michael again. This time he finished his sentence, got on one knee and asked Vanessa to be his forever. She said, “Yes.”

Big Bear Lake Engagement: Juan loves Analy

Love is a tale as old as time and sometimes love takes a while. For Juan and Analy it took a decade. After 10 years of being just friends, Juan finally asked Analy out. Their first official date would be in Malibu. They enjoyed a fancy meal, drinks and as dolphins swam by they watched the sunset. It had been worth the wait. The fairy tale had begun.
Since their love was built on a strong friendship, they both already cared deeply about each other. They were best friends who laughed and joked and made the other better.
Juan knew he could not picture any other woman being his wife or the mother of his children. So, he proposed to his Beauty. Literally. It was a Halloween Party and they were dressed as Beauty and the Beast. They won the dance contest and Juan made his “Winner Speech.” There before family and friends, Juan asked Analy to marry him. And as certain as the sun, Analy said, “Yes.”

Kauai Engagement Photography: John loves Kellie

Kellie logged into her Match.com account to see that a handsome guy, in a suit and toasting drink, had “Winked,” at her. Soon John called her and they were spending hours on the phone talking every night. They would stay up late, regardless that they had to be at work early the next day.
John asked her out and drove from Gardena to BJ’s in Chino. It was exactly a 49.4 mile drive. They both had written that 50 miles was the longest they would drive to meet someone. Another half a mile in distance, and they would have never met. It was obvious that the distance did not bother John, for the following date, he took Kellie to Long Beach. They spent the entire day together visiting the aquarium, riding the ferris wheel and walking along the pier. Their second date ended with their first kiss.
For their third date, John took Kellie to watch The Lakers play. The seats were spectacular. You could see the sweat dripping off the players. Little did Kellie know then that John was not really into basketball or sports for that matter. He was just obviously into her.
It would be on a trip to Laughlin, sitting on a bench at the river’s edge where John would tell Kellie for the first time he loved her.
John not only made Kellie happy, but everyone in her family. He was soon there for all extended family functions. He made an effort to talk to her brothers, grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles. He would bring the entertainment for everyone, whether it was a corn-hole, a karaoke set or a dice game. Kellie’s family began to call him, “Fun John.” Kellie loved his generous nature and how he put others before himself. She was in love.
A love like this deserves two proposals. The first happened in their kitchen. Kelly had given John sass that morning, reminding him that he had said that by the year 2018, they would be married. It was already March. The hint that planning a wedding would take time had became an outright declaration of facts on Kelly’s part. That evening, John asked Kelly’s father for her hand. Then he asked Kelly if he needed his proposal to be somewhere special. Kelly answered, “If we were on vacation, I would probably be expecting it and I’d rather be surprised. I would be more surprised, if you were to just come home one night during the week and ask me.” Kelly was playing with the dog, as they were talking. She turned to see John on his knee with a ring. He had surprised her.
But John was not done. On the a beautiful beach in Kauai, John proposed again, telling Kelly, “I never envisioned proposing to you in Harbor City in the kitchen. I always thought I would do it somewhere, like here. So will you marry me?” Of course, Kellie said, “Yes!”

Mt. Baldy Engagement: Chad loves Tracey

Chad and Tracey’s love story have all the makings of a country musical. It started with a party. All Chad had to do was deliver balloons, he did, but he also fell in love with the hostess at the wine bar. Through out the party he made excuses to see her. After a couple of drinks, he managed to convince the bar’s musician to lend him his guitar. In true romantic movie fashion, Chad added Tracey’s name to the lyrics and sung to the entire lobby. Of course, Tracey was the only one in the lobby, but she couldn’t help to think he was the sweetest and sexiest man at that moment.
With the chaos of the party and the impromptu show, Chad never got Tracey’s number. So Tracey relied on her female superpowers of social media stalking, that all real women have, to find him. After a few days of non-stop conversations and flirting, she finally asked, “Are you going to ask me out or what?” Chad did and their first date was a typical summer evening of going to the movies and ice cream, but they were so focused on each other that neither could remember what movie they saw. During their conversations, Chad learned that country music and line dancing were Tracey’s favorite things. On their way back to the car, he stopped her in the middle of the parking lot. He turned his car on, fumbled for a song and when he ran back, grabbed her hand and spun her around to the tune of country music. Their first dance in the parking lot ended in their first kiss.
Chad had written music his whole life. Tracey wanted a song of her own. For the last six years, whenever they had sat around a camp fire, she had asked him for one. On a trip up in Kern River, Tracey asked again, “When am I getting my song.” This time Chad laughed and said, “Tonight.” The song didn’t give away what it was leading to, until the last couple of lines. Chad quickly set the guitar down and got on one knee asking if Tracey would marry him. She said, “Yes!”

Japanese Engagement Photography: John loves Kellie

Kellie not only loves her fiancé John, but his mom as well. John’s mom only had sons and this would be her first American Wedding. So when she wanted to incorporate Japanese culture into the wedding, Kellie happily agreed to a Kimono Engagement Session. This made both of their parents excited and happy. John is Issei, first generation born in the USA and Kellie is Yonsei, fourth generation. Kellie a wore a Furisode Kimono, which is worn by unmarried women. John wore traditional Hakama (men’s kimono pants) and Haori (kimono jacket).
If Japanese traditions are serious, the seriousness soon got overshadowed by John and Kellie’s playful, energetic and goofy relationship. At one point, there was a modeling contest… which John says he won and a sword fight with Monsters coming out the water. (Please note, the monster appearing in this session was not harmed and got along beautifully with the coy fish. You can find him at Krome.)
