One of the best things about my job is getting to know people as much as I can before their wedding day so that I can make the pictures really reflect who they are. We often start by asking couples how they met and about their engagement stories, which always gives us some great insight into who they are. Here’s how Alicia and Eric got engaged:
“Let’s just say I wasn’t completely in the dark. We had decided on the ring together so I knew the proposal was imminent, but at the same time I was constantly under suspense and getting my nails done every week and hair blown out every Friday 🙂 It was getting expensive… Eric led me to believe that we were going to a BBQ in Malibu one Saturday. On the way to the “BBQ”, Eric pulled over at Point Dume and said he wanted to go out to the bluff to check the waves. He asked if I wanted to check it out, as we both love the spot, it is quite beautiful. As we arrived at the bluff, I looked out on the ocean, and when I turned around, Eric was on one one knee and asked to spend the rest of his life with me!”
Alicia and Eric’s engagement session was a fun adventure, as the winter ones always are! Capturing the last rays of the sun on a cold Sun Valley day, Alicia looked beautiful in everything she put on, Eric was a good sport with wet leather shoes and their little dog Milo was not a big fan of the cold but hung in there for a few shots!
