Tiffany & David. Emeryville Engagements.

It had been six months since they had seen each other. Tiffany had been living in New York serving a mission for her church & after completing her mission, she came home to California for about 6 months. After coming home, she thought it would be fun to visit New York again. She flew to New York & decided to go see her old friends at church. When she arrived at church, David instantly recognized her. They talked & David was shocked to find that suitors weren’t knocking down her door…and then he blurted out, “I would marry you!!” Tiffany questioned if this was a real proposal and David said, “Absolutely. Will you marry me?” She said, “Yes, but I need a ring.” They joked about getting married as they parted ways & went on dates with other people. A few months later, Tiffany made another surprise visit to New York. Once again, she ran into David but this time it was at a wedding reception. They spent the night dancing together & having a great time. Again they joked about getting married & again Tiffany joked that she needed a ring.

So David came to California to see Tiffany…and to propose for real with a real ring! As they explored Tilden Park together, David asked Tiffany if she would take his picture. Tiffany grabbed the camera, started taking the photograph as David dropped to one knee with a ring in hand. She fell to her knees (after taking his photo!) and said yes! They are SUCH a fun couple & you can tell how in love they are by the huge smiles on their faces. They are getting married in the Oakland Temple in a few months & although I won’t be able to photograph their wedding, I feel so lucky to have been able to document this fun time in their lives!

We explored Caesar Chavez park in Emeryville…and all I have to say is that I LOVE California all year round but especially in January & February when the grass is neon green & the flowers are blooming! Here are my favorites…

I love the setting on Tiffany’s ring! Nice work, David!!
