David and Stella – wow were these two amazing! Meeting these smiling faces for their engagement session at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, I couldn’t believe how happy they were together. Like a true couple in love, David and Stella constantly showed me examples of not only their love, but also their beautiful chemistry. The air around them buzzed with excitement; almost as if that chemistry was filling the air with sparks of their love. It was the real thing alright, and I was the lucky one that got to capture it!
David and Stella met for the first time in Korea. I know, quite a long way from Los Angeles, right? Well this was because they both happened to be studying abroad. Coming from Cerritos originally, this couple just happened to be in the right place at the right time. David had gone to study abroad through his schooling at UCR while Stella had gone through her schooling at Biola. Finding out that they had even gone to the same high school together and that Stella already knew his cousin and younger brother from being in the same class as them, it was an amazing connection from the start. As they continued to study abroad together and enjoyed the journey of their relationship, they found that they really had something great. Enjoying each other’s company and constantly finding new restaurants to explore together even as they returned to California, it wasn’t long before David was sure that she was the one.
Coming up with a surprise birthday party for Stella, it was the perfect environment for David to propose. Programming Christmas lights to flicker in tune with a Bruno Mars song called Marry You, David proposed as it was playing. Stella of course said yes and they were soon happily engaged. With such a wonderful story that brought them together, it was no wonder that they were always smiling! As I snapped pictures of them, including some with their plush character from Despicable Me and some balloons, I knew that these two would always find a way to have a great time and keep those beautiful smiles upon their faces. Love – what a wonderful thing to share! I wish them all the best; now and for forever!
