Amaritpal surprised Arsheen on a sunny day last month with one of the most beautiful proposal displays I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing: a huge, free-standing heart made of red roses, with an aisle made of rose petals and rows of vases on either side. Under the golden hour evening sun, just the decor by itself was breathtaking, but of course what was really memorable was the proposal itself.

When the couple arrived, Amaritpal gave his touching yet lighthearted speech, recounting how he knew she was the one ever since he slid into her DMs [ read more … ]
