A few months ago, Angela had reached out to me about how she was interested in doing an engagement session. As we got closer to the date, her fiancé, Rayman, also contacted me in secret to ask if I'd be willing to capture the actual proposal as well. To say I was giddy with excitement would be an understatement. To be completely honest, my biggest fear wasn't that I would struggle to capture it but rather that I may accidentally burst into tears during the proposal itself. Fortunately, I was able to hold it together (yay!). 

Since the couple had met when they were in college, it was a no-brainer that we would shoot in the gorgeous arboretum at UC Davis. The plan was that while I was taking their photos, their close friends would sneak up behind Angela and have a sign that said "Will you marry me?". It went perfectly. There were tears, joy, and lots of champagne to go around. One of my highlights of this session was seeing just how happy their friends were for them and how they were able share such a wonderful occasion with the newly engaged couple.
