Together for over a year, Clara and David were celebrating a very special occasion – their engagement! What an exciting time it must be for them! Even though they hadn’t been together as long as other couples that I have worked with, when I joined them in Villa Montalvo, Saratoga, there was no doubt in my mind that these two were meant to be with each other. They shone with a love that was strong and captivating.
Let me tell you a little about this beautiful couple before I talk about their great engagement session. Clara was raised in Tianjin, China before she moved to Saratoga when she was 13 years old. David on the other hand, had been born in Seattle, WA and was raised in Tacoma, WA. Finding their way to each other, these two met as they commuted between home and work in Chapel Hill, NC. Having a lot in common with their love of travel, exploring new cultures, the types of music they listen to, as well their joy of cooking, the sparks were flying between them. It wasn’t long before they were doing things they liked as a couple and enjoying the greatest joy of all – spending time together.
It’s always difficult to capture your love for someone in words, but Clara and David posed for pictures that were worth thousands of them. Though they had grown up in very different places, these two fit together like two peas in a pod. The looks of love on their faces told me all I needed to know about how they felt for each other. Enjoying their time together while being surrounded by nature, the trees and gardens offered a wonderful spot to capture the radiant beauty of these two. With a building that had beautiful windows and fences that further complemented this couple, I loved capturing these two interacting. Love was written on their faces and as they both looked at the ring David had given Clara, the uniqueness of its never-ending circle fit them perfectly. Like that ring, may they always share their wonderful personalities together and forever continue on their never-ending road of love.
