Tatiana & Volkmar | Temecula, California

Asking her to spend forever with you.

I LOVE hearing engagement stories.

Each time I hear one I can't help but feel so giddy & so inspired by the way he studied her, the way she didn't see it coming (wink-wink), how he asked her parents for her hand (swoon) and how she felt seeing a ring he hand-picked for her...

Every story is unique and each one carries a certain magic that makes your love for each other come alive! 


And sometimes I even get to be there with you to witness the magic, firsthand...

There I stand behind the lens of my camera, heart racing with excitement, letting tears fall down my face because I know what is starting....

A life-time of together.. A legacy like no other. Your legacy together. 

GUYSSSS!!!! This surprise proposal was EVERYTHING!!! I am so thankful that Volkmar asked me to be a part of it. 

Volkmar had planned his proposal out perfectly. He connected with all of the people he believed Tatiana would want to be there when he asked. He contacted me and asked if I could be there to photograph her reaction & man oh man it was beautiful. 

He took her wine tasting & out for a before sunset horseback ride. She had no idea that he was about to ask her to be his! 

I watched as they came around the bend on horseback, only to look up and see their friends and family standing in a large crowd in the front of a beautiful fountain outside of the hotel. Each person (including me) holding a single red rose meant to shower Tatiana. Tears started falling as she exclaimed in utter shock & awe at the very sight of us all.  Volkmar's smile lit up his face from ear to ear. They rode over to where we were & he along with their guide helped Tatiana down from her horse and then he led her to the very center of everyone.

At the center of the half circle, right as the sun was dipping below the horizon he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife.

She said yes!

It was a beautiful moment, filled with all the best kind of feels. I'm so thankful I got to be a part of it!

Thank you both for trusting me to capture this moment forever. Love you guys!
