Griffith Park engagement // Peter & Karen

 Etherial engagement at Griffith Park // ©2016 Sun & Sparrow Los Angeles wedding and engagement photographer



We had talked a lot about marriage in the year leading up to the proposal and had even gone shopping to look at rings. I started to watch for hints from Peter…perhaps a weekend getaway trip, a date night at a special restaurant…as it turns out, the day that Peter proposed was a typical lazy wear-pajamas-all-day Saturday for us.

Peter had been nursing me through a terrible cold that week and I was still feeling too miserable to go out. I did, however, need to take my car to get it serviced that afternoon. Peter offered to pick up takeout for lunch from one of our usual restaurants, so I stayed home with my DayQuil to rest. 45 minutes later and he wasn’t home yet…I was starting to get hungry…1 hour later and I was starting to worry, but also I was Hangry! Finally, he came home with food and groceries and a story about how the credit card machine at the restaurant was broken. I believed his story because all I wanted to do was dive into my lunch and eat! I only found out later that he used that time to pick up flowers for the proposal!
Fast forward an couple hours later and I came home from getting my car serviced. I was fumbling to find keys to the front door when Peter opened it. I heard John Legend’s “All of Me” playing in the background with rose petals leading up to a bouquet of roses on the table. On it had a card that read “From me and Mocha, now go give Mocha a kiss!” (Mocha is our little dachshund). I stooped down to give Mocha a kiss and Peter said “do you notice any new bling on her?” I was looking for a ring, but couldn’t find it! Mocha had a new dog tag that read “Will you & Mocha marry me”. I stood up with tears in my eyes and that’s when Peter proposed. Of course I said yes! We are so excited to be starting this new chapter of our lives together.

    Dave & Dulce // Travel Town Engagement

    how he asked-torrance wedding-photography

    March 2013 //  It was an early Saturday morning in Big Bear, and with nerves of steel (aided by an early morning whisky), Dave was finally ready. Months of research, trips to the LA Diamond district, and careful planning had lead up to today, and with the ring safely tucked into the least conspicuous pocket of his snowboard pants, he and Dulce made their way to the ski lift. His heart had not beat this fast on a lift before, not even his first time skiing when he was all but certain he would fall flat on has face at the top (fun fact: Dulce ended up falling flat on her face later that day). He ran through the brief but carefully thought out words he would say, knowing that she would be completely surprised in just a few minutes. At the mountain top, strapped into his boots, Dave started into the “speech.” He could see that Dulce wasn’t fully processing what was happening, but as she asked “Are you serious?!” he simply replied “yes,” and pulled out the ring. After a kiss, made somewhat awkward by the helmets they were both wearing, he slid the ring onto her finger, and they snowboarded down to the congratulations of their friends. The rest of the morning was a blur of phone calls in between snowboarding.
