HOW THEY MET

Louis and Bella met on October 23, 2010. That weekend, Bella was visiting her friend Sarah, who lived in Highland Park at the time. That Saturday night Sarah, Bella, Sarah’s sister Rebecca, Rebecca’s then boyfriend Kevin, Kevin’s friend Alex, and Alex’s friend Louis met up to go out in New Brunswick. They met up in Sarah’s apartment before going out and Louis cracked a Lewis Black joke – Bella was the only one who laughed. Little did they both know that Lewis Black was their favorite comedian. At the end of their night out, Bella and Louis exchanged phone numbers.

Years later, Bella and Louis purchased their first home in Edison, NJ which is just a few miles down the same road from Sarah’s old apartment in Highland Park, NJ. It was fate that brought them together through 6-degrees of separation. However, it is a deep love and commitment which has kept them together through the years.  A week after Louis and Bella met in Highland Park, they went out on their first date. It was a classic dinner and movie kind of night at the Palisades Center Mall in Nyack, NY. They ate dinner at Bella’s favorite restaurant called Stir Crazy. After dinner, they went to see the movie Due Date, a comedy starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zack Galifianakis. Louis and Bella shared their first kiss on the night they met. As Louis was getting ready to leave with his friend Alex, they shared a romantic kiss in the moonlight. And as they say, the rest is history…

THE PROPOSAL

Louis and Bella were on vacation in California with Taylour and her family during the summer of 2016. They were having a great time, taking pictures, and enjoying all the sights in places like Lake Arrowhead Village, San Bernadino, Disneyland, Carrillo National Monument in Point Loma, and Seal Beach in La Jolla. During the last part of the trip, they all traveled to San Francisco to complete the trip. While in San Francisco, they were enjoying a hop-on-hop-off bus tour of the beautiful city. Later that night, they stopped at the Queen Whilemina Tulip Tea Garden which has a beautiful Dutch Windmill. While taking pictures, Louis got down on one knee and asked Bella to spend the rest of her life with him. Of course, she was overwhelmed with emotion. She said “yes”, they kissed, and continued to take a few more pictures. Then they shared a champagne toast with their friends before heading off to the Beach Chalet for dinner to continue the celebration.

HOW THEY MET

Ann and Albert met through an online dating site in June. After a few e-mail correspondences, phone calls, and almost daily video Skypes, they finally met in Cody, Wyoming at the end of July when Ann went on vacation with her family. Their love grew more  and more since Cody.

 

THE PROPOSAL

After attending the Sunday evening service at church when Ann visited Arizona during the Labor Day weekend, they talked to her parents via video Skype. Afterwards, they were going to take a walk outside. As they were about to leave, Albert said, “Let me get something real quick…” And as Ann was just done putting her shoes on, Albert knelt down and asked, “Will you marry me?” Ann was surprised and responded “Yes, of course!” Albert showed her the beautiful diamond ring and Ann was overjoyed. Albert put the ring on her finger and they took a picture together afterwards. The following morning they went to Sedona, a beautiful romantic town.

Brian and Sarah met online and hit it off from the start! Less than 2 years later they are engaged! They knew quite early on that they wanted to spend the rest of thier lives together but the actually engagement day was a big surprise to Sarah!

Brian was working in the US for 2 weeks and they decided she would join him for a long weekend together in New York. They both love New York so Sarah was very excited! She flew in from Ireland on the Friday afternoon and Brian was flying from California. He completely played down the whole weekend so much so that she packed very casual and thought he was going to work that Friday. Instead he had a very romantic proposal planned!

She arrived at their hotel and the main thing on her mind was a shower and a little nap. Brian had other plans! He said he wanted them to go for a walk and that he had dinner booked! Sarah was more than a little cranky as she couldn’t understand why he’d book something so early in the evening. His plan, she would find out later was to get her to Brooklyn Bridge Park at twilight to propose! Once she accepted she had to leave the lovely hotel for a blustering cold New York walk. They walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and down to the park looking over the river. The backdrop was beautiful! There was also no one else in sight, that she could see.  Brian got down on one knee and you know the rest!

Thanks Brian and Sarah for letting me be there for such a romantic moment! I could tell by your smiles, how happy you both are together!

Thanks to my other shooter Jess.
