Brian & Anjali. UC Davis Engagements.

It happened on a rowboat in England. As Brian & Anjali vacationed in Europe with Brian’s family, he knew it would be the perfect time to propose to his sweet girlfriend. He had brought the diamond ring with him on their trip & he knew that he was going to propose. As they went on a boat ride together, Brian took a knee & asked Anjali to be his wife. Surprised, shocked & beyond excited, she said yes! The royals have nothing on Brian’s smooth moves!

Brian & Anjali had been together since they attended U.C Davis-they lived in the dorms in a large group. They always had fun together & after a one-on-one date, they realized that there was simply something there. Maybe it was the fact that they had so much fun together. Maybe it was the fact that they were such good friends. Maybe it was because they were meant to end up together. Whatever the reason, one thing is certain-that they make each other soooooo ridiculously happy. When you talk to Brian & Anjali, their zest for life & their love for each other is palpable. They live each moment to the fullest & are simply a blast to be around.

They borrowed a bicycle built for two for their session & I loved how the photos turned out with the bike! It added such a fun element to the photos. We shot the photos on the campus where their story began-I can’t wait for their wedding next month!

If you’ve ever been to the UC Davis campus, you’ve seen the Egg Heads that decorate the campus…I loved having them in a few of the photographs…
