Is there really more greater joy then a marriage proposal? I’m sure there are things but this one is pretty high up there. Especially, because Ryan managed to fly in both families from all over the country to witness it and celebrate. To say Amorina was surprised is the understatement of the century. When I hugged her….her entire nervous system was vibrating at a frequency I can’t put into words. I mean pure BLISS were the feelings everyone had for Ryan and Amorina! Everyone was excited to spend the week at a house rental in Stinson Beach to enjoy time together and marvel in the beginning of their beautiful commitment to one another. I love photographing marriage proposals and then get to photograph the engagement session and the wedding. Pretty beautiful stuff here.
It couldn’t have been more perfect….Pierce proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Kaia at Hall Winery in Napa Valley, CA. They were with his parents for a wine tasting and afterwards went for a walk around the lavender infused grounds. He then proposed on one knee while I snapped away from afar with a long lens so they had that moment all to themselves. She immediately said yes and was overcome with emotion. Pierce’s parents were up in the tasting room and could see the proposal from afar. Then as if that wasn’t enough for surprises for the day, Pierce’s sister, Paige, drove up from Los Aneles to be there as well. It was a wonderful day and everyone couldn’t have been happier to have Kaia a part of the family now.
