Drew and Stephanie both went to school in DC but Stephanie only stayed for her freshman year. She moved back to California and Drew stayed and graduated there. Drew then moved back to Texas while Stephanie was still in California. Then 7 years later from their freshman year they both moved back to DC within a month of each other unbeknownst to both of them and within a week of them being back in DC they ran into each and went on our first date a week later. Drew decided on their trip back to Orange County that he would pop the question. He contacted me and through the use of technology we planned his proposal without him every being at the location. She definitely said YES and was so surprised and excited to learn that I was secretly photographing the whole experience. Proposals are one of my favorite things to photograph because there are so many raw emotions which make for awesome candid story telling images.
