They met in Washington D.C., a California boy and a Pennsylvania girl. They endured long distances between them and made their relationship work, which made this day even more special. He asked and she said "Yes!"
The site for the proposal was a Palos Verdes bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. When I asked Michael why he chose this spot, he said it was where his mom and dad got engaged. So it was no surprise when his whole family joined us on the bluff, giving hugs among tears of joy.
Not only was Sarah surprised to finally have a diamond on her left hand but also to be in front of my camera. I asked them if they wanted to take a few quick engagement photos and she was blissfully up for anything! Since they live together on the East Coast, this was a great opportunity for a few California Coastal photos and family portraits.
Thank you Michael and Sarah. I wish you all the best in your new life together.
