Justin and Dana have been friends since they met their first weekend of freshman year of college at Northern Arizona University. They didn’t start dating until their Senior year, but it wasn’t until they moved back to Southern California that their relationship flourished. After 4 years, they’ve had many adventures together. From going to various country concerts, to adventurous moments of traveling together and lots and lots of cuddles.

I was so honored when Justin gave me a call and asked if I could capture their proposal. Not only was I over the moon to be a part of such a grand moment, but I was so excited for him as I could hear it in his voice how thrilled he was for this moment. Justin wanted to make sure that this would be the greatest moment for Dana. And he delivered. She had no idea and couldn’t believe this was real life. She didn’t even realize I was taking pictures, until this moment right here…

Justin and I couldn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day together as he works late this time of year.  So, it was my idea to go to the beach and watch the sunset while we have a bite to eat and enjoy each others company. Justin played it cool the whole time and I was very surprised when he popped the question! I was not expecting it at all to say the least! It was such a special moment as I later found out he planned the whole thing with his sister and family in the weeks leading up. We later celebrated with both of our families and friends over dinner and drinks! – Dana, future Mrs. Taylor.
