We had such a blast getting to know Brenda and Jorge during their Santa Barbara engagement session at the Douglas Family Preserve and Leadbetter Beach! The sun came out just in time for us to start shooting, and the weather could not have been more beautiful.
Our favorite part of meeting a new couple is finding out how they got engaged, so naturally we had to ask these two! Even after 9 years together Jorge was able to keep his proposal a secret from Brenda, even if the rest of her family already knew 🙂 Jorge asked on the day before Brenda’s birthday, while Brenda was spending time with her family on a Sunday afternoon. Jorge had called letting her know that he was out playing soccer, which was his ritual on Sundays, so nothing seemed out of the ordinary. That is until shortly Jorge came knocking on the door! Brenda stood shocked looking back and forth between Jorge and her family not knowing what was going on. Her family all stood looking back at her in anticipation, as Jorge got down on one knee and asked her to marry him!! She of course said YES, and we were lucky enough to spend the afternoon documenting this new chapter in their lives – 9 years in the making!
