This engagement photo shoot was such a wonderful experience. Jaime and Johnny are full of so much happiness & love, we truly had a joyous day with them. They welcomed Jake and I into their home, shared a cup of coffee with us and relived the day that Johnny asked Jaime to be his wife.
You will notice an Italian theme woven into some of the pictures. This is because Johnny proposed in Venice, Italy. He had been plotting for months where and when he would pop the question/what he would say… etc. He wanted to find the perfect spot with the perfect conditions… and quickly realized that with a rainy day in a city full of people and tourists he was just going to have to make it work when the moment felt right. He found an old Italian couple while she was busy taking in the scenery, got down on one knee and asked her to marry him as the couple captured the moment on video. She of course said yes, and in a moment of pure joy and excitement they almost let the Italian couple get away without saying thank you. They chased them down and shared as much dialogue and they could with them, expressing their gratitude and came to find out they have been married for over 50 years — the newly engaged couple took this as a good sign of many happy years to come! The story was so romantic and beautiful, we had to work it into their photos!
We were able to capture many other great aspects of this couple and their relationship during their engagement photo shoot– they love being at home with their pup, baking & devouring the fruits of their labor, Los Angeles sports (especially basketball & baseball) and Redondo Beach, CA… the city they call home and where they fell in love.
They are getting married one year to the date that he proposed– we cannot wait to share and capture their special day!
