Today we are sharing an outdoor engagement with the most gorgeous lighting. We love how organic and romantic these images are!
How They Met: One magical night, Javi invited me to an art show in downtown St. Petersburg with a group of friends. We ended up wandering downtown and dancing the night away. A few days later, Javi invited me over, wooed me with his famous pork chop recipe, and we have hung out pretty much every day for four years since.The Engagement Story: We got engaged while on our first trip out to Portland, Oregon. Javi had planted a seed that he wanted to go out to see the coast, so we bought local wine and cheese, brought a blanket, and drove out to Cannon Beach to enjoy the views. It was pretty rainy as we went, but had cleared a little as we made it to the coast, so we were able to explore the beach for a while. As the afternoon went on, we decided to drive south along the coast, and ended up at Arcadia Beach, where we set up our picnic with the beach to ourselves to watch the sunset. Being photographers and videographers, we were taking photos to document our first Pacific Ocean adventure together, enjoying our wine and nibbling on cheese and crackers while we waited for the clouds to clear. Just as the sun peeked out from behind a cloud, Javi asked if I could grab the new lens that he had bought, so I grabbed it for him, took off the lens cap, and was shocked to find a very pretty diamond ring looking back at me. Javi asked me to marry him and we danced around the beach together in celebration as the sun went down.
VENDOR LOVE –
