Happy Monday! Yes I'm probably one of the few that loves Monday's ;) I'm onto a brand new week of lovely pictures, meetings, and preparation for another love filled weekend of weddings.
To start out the week, I am sharing Erin and Nick's awesome Huntington Beach engagement session. Choosing a location for these two was easy. They grew up in, met in, and spend so much time in Huntington Beach. They actually met in first grade at their church that they will tie the knot in and then didn't start dating until high school. Nick did a great job on the proposal. He asked one of Erin's good friends to take her to get her nails done. In the meantime, he snuck into her apartment and decorated the place with candles, champagne, and tons of white roses. Upon entering her apartment (with freshly painted nails) Erin immediately started to cry as she saw Nick appear out from around the corner dressed impeccably. He got down on one knee, gave her a beautiful ring and asked her to marry him. She said yes and then Nick was able to surprise her again by walking her into a restaurant where family awaited to greet them!
For the engagement session we started at a brand new mall across from the beach called Pacific City. It's brand new and had plenty of cute backdrops! Afterwards we were greeted on the beach by one of the most golden sunsets I have ever seen!
I'm especially looking forward to documenting their wedding day this October at their church where their love story began!
Congratulations Erin and Nick! <3
