Engagement Shoot | Trisha and David | October 2010

By, December 09, 2010

Photography By: True Photography

David and I met in college at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Within the first year of dating we were already talking about the day we would marry. But, as I was only 19 at the time, we both knew we wanted to wait. So, it was quite a shock that David was actually able to surprise me with a proposal 11 years later. In typical David style, it was unique and very thought out. He proposed on the beach at the Santa Monica pier using a photo booth strip where in each picture he held signs reading “will”, “you”, “marry”, “me?”!

To be as thorough as possible we researched over 200 photographers’ websites, blogs, and reviews from Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego. True Photography was a clear front runner based on their artistry, quality, and consistency. After meeting Aaron in person, we were sold.

For our engagement photos, we wanted to go back to the site of the proposal at the Santa Monica pier. We were paired with Michael as our shooter who was very accommodating to make the trek from San Diego to Santa Monica on a week night. Though I was very nervous, Michael was great to work with and put us right at ease. He gave us great direction while allowing our own personalities to show through. We’ve been thrilled by the response from family and friends regarding our engagement pictures and can’t wait for Michael to shoot our wedding come April!
