James wanted to surprise his girlfriend Anne Marie with a marriage proposal in a special spot: on a Stow Lake rowboat, near the old stone arch bridge. As they slowly rowed towards the spot while feeding the ducks around them, we got into position — Annie on the shore nearby, David in a different rowboat (with our daughter on board to make it not look suspicious!) to get a second angle from the side — and watched as they approached.

We love it when a plan all comes together for a wonderful result! Preet brought his girlfriend Prabhjit to the Palace of Fine Arts on a sunny October afternoon. Prior to his arrival, a group of his friends had gathered to help set up an cute “marry me” lighted sign and flower petals arranged in the shape of a heart. Thanks to all the help, by the time they arrived, the completed setup looked just perfect. Congrats to P&P and check out their beautiful Palace of Fine Arts sunset proposal in the photos below!

Little did Janet know that roles would reverse soon… [ read more … ]
I could be fooled if you had told me these photos were taken in the French countryside: a dashing young man, arm-in-arm with his lovely girlfriend in her sun dress, walking by a quiet lake surrounded by grapevines in every direction. Amos and Christine had started their day off with a romantic hot air balloon ride before arriving at the beautiful Diamond Creek Vineyards. After a round of wine tasting, their host Mark drove them in a golf cart to the lake, where they would take a quick walk [ read more … ]
