Engagement Session in Balboa Park

Engagement Session in Balboa Park –  Ahh, we just love engagement sessions in Balboa Park.  Especially engagement sessions with two cute, sweet girls!  Balboa Park holds a special place in Chelsea and Shawna’s hearts because they met at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park.

How Chelsea and Shawna met:

Chelsea and I were both new to San Diego, and were both at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park. We started discussing a photograph and decided to exchange contact info. Once we started hanging out we realized we wanted to be more than just friends.

The proposal:
Last year for our three year anniversary we took a trip up to the Redwood National Forest where we went on some beautiful hikes. I had been carrying the ring in my pocket all day long, but didn’t get the courage until we were back at our cabin. Our cabin was on an ocean bluff and we were outside watching the sun set, when I gave her a kiss and pulled the ring out of my pocket and asked if she would marry me. She said yes!

A few months later when we were at Disneyland (which is my favorite place), she wanted to take a picture of us in front of the sleeping beauty castle, and by total surprise she pulled out a ring for me and also asked if I would marry her. Kind of a double proposal 🙂

Chelsea and Shawna are planning an intimate wedding in Muir Woods, outside of San Francisco, this fall.  We had a great time shooting their engagement session in Balboa Park.  We hope they have an absolutely beautiful wedding day and beautiful life together!
