He had it all planned out…he knew exactly how he was going to propose. And his plan was to re-create his first date with Carol. Three years after their first date, Carol & Derrick visited the same locations in San Francisco where they went on their first date & Derrick even wore the exact same shirt that he wore on his first date with Carol. See? I told you he had it all planned out! At the end of the date as they stood on the beach by the Golden Gate Bridge & Derrick asked Carol to be his wife. She said yes & they are planning a Spring wedding at the Oakland Temple-I’m so excited to be a part of it! Carol & Derrick have been dating long distance for the past three years. Through their trips to the airport, long phone calls & missing each other like crazy, they grew closer together & fell in love. Through their experiences, they realized that they would be there for each other no.matter.what. They are a darling couple who make each other blissfully happy.
Carol was so cute & she planned this whole picnic in the park idea-they rummaged through Derrick’s mom’s home & found candles, books and vases to set up a little picnic. I was excited because there is this tree in Piedmont that blooms for just about a week in the early Spring & I was so excited that Carol & Derrick were open to doing the shoot by the tree. It’s amazing! We had a fun time exploring & getting to know each other better. I can’t wait for their wedding in May! Here are my favorites…
I am obsessed with this photograph. And this tree.
Dear Carol: I want your shoes.
One of my favorites!
