On Sunday, we went down to San Diego to attend my brother’s proposal to his long-time girlfriend. They have been together for 7 years and he wanted all his sisters and her parents to be part of the surprise. We gathered early in the morning at Torrie Pines State Park and walked down to the end of the beach trail to wait for their arrival. The tide was coming in while we were waiting down at the beach so we all ended up with soaked feet. We decided it was probably safer to wait near the top of the cliff that overlooked the ocean. We all hid behind a rock wall while the lovebirds rounded the corner towards the beach at the end of the hiking trail. My brother’s girlfriend was caught off guard by the crowd of people snapping pictures of them and didn’t realize what was going on until she spotted her parents among the crowd. He got down on one knee and popped the question. She said, “Yes!” We are so excited for them and look forward to attending their wedding some time soon.

This past weekend was very exciting for us. On Saturday, we had our engagement photo session with Carissa Woo, our photographer at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. I had never been to the mansion before and Ashley thought it would be the perfect place for our photo session. Boy, was he right. The grounds were unbelievable. It provided such a gorgeous backdrop for our photos and the weather could not have been more perfect. I’m really please with how the photos turned out. Here is a sneak preview. If you are interested in seeing some more photos from our session, you can find it here on Carissa’s blog.
