What a day! It’s always great to work with couples during their special moments and it was no different when it came to this next stunning couple! Meeting up at the lovely Los Angeles Arboretum, Taleen and Movses were both such a sparkling couple of love! Enjoying some time in the quiet garden atmosphere, the place was alive with their romance. Blossoming like a flower at every turn, their love was exquisite. Even as they had a fun and relaxing time at a rooftop restaurant called The Perch, their never ending displays of romance just made the day special. It was wonderful to see them so happy as they celebrated their engagement!
I met this lovely couple through previous couples I have worked with over the last two years. Just like a tight knit family, they all knew each other from their Armenian church. I couldn’t be happier to be their wedding photographer, just like I was sure that Taleen and Movses couldn’t have been happier to find each other! Both growing up in California, their church was a large factor in bringing them together. Going to the same church for years and becoming friends, they eventually decided to become more than that. Dating each other and finding out that they had a lot in common with their love of God, spending time with family, having fun, and listening to country music, it was a perfect match.
Their story doesn’t end there though. There’s still how they got engaged! Taleen and Movses both went to a conference in Montreal, Canada that was being hosted by a church that was part of their church union. Their church group took a tour of parts of Canada after the conference was over. During their last sightseeing location, which was Niagara Falls on July 4th, they had missed the fireworks for the night, but there was soon to be another kind. Even though they had missed the fireworks, the group had still decided to go to see the falls at night. As the group moved ahead though, Movses drew Taleen aside and before she knew it, he was on one knee and proposing! It was definitely a magical time and even though they had been engaged for a year, the same wonderful looks of love and excitement shone brightly in their eyes as I worked with them. Always complementing each other’s personalities, it was wonderful to see them having such a great time and being comfortable with each other. It made for awesome pictures and moments that I’ll never forget!
