It was a wonderful fall day that was perfect for the fall-loving couple, Ashley and Dusty. Inviting me to Diamond Bar to take some engagement pictures for them, it was a pleasant experience. With the love of the outdoors, the environment was perfect. Fall leaves were all around them as well as trees and nature. Combined with their love at the center of attention, this couple was loving and full of adoration for each other.
Meeting in high school, these two have been together for a long time and are still going strong. They were both on the high school track when they met and Ashley had been the one to initiate the conversation by asking if he wanted to run the warm up lap together. Since then, it has only got better for the two of them. Dating and enjoying their time together doing the things they love – such as soccer, snowboarding, enjoying the outdoors, and spending time with family – it had been a wonderful 10 years together before Dusty had made the ultimate surprise for his proposal to Ashley.
It was their 10th anniversary and Dusty had planned a wonderful proposal. Sending her on a scavenger hunt to the ten most significant places in the history of their relationship, she was met by a family member at each location. Each family member had a poem that they read for Ashley which gave her the next location. When she finally followed them all to the tenth location that was at Newport Beach Pier, she saw Dusty as well as a crowd of their families and friends. As Ashley got closer, she could see that Dusty had a rose in his hand and music was softly filling the air. Kneeling down, he proposed to Ashley in front of everyone and they were soon celebrating not only their 10th anniversary, but also their engagement! It was an exciting day for the both of them.
With their wonderful surprise engagement, it was time to celebrate a different way – with pictures that would serve as memories for the years to come. They both looked wonderful together and their love shone brightly through their eyes and the smiles upon their lips. They both seemed so at peace with each other and it was amazing to see them interact. Having lovely flowers and a headpiece, Ashley really fit in with the natural surroundings. With affection and tons of smiles throughout the day, they even brought their puppy Bella to join in on their shoot. Playing a large role in bringing them closer, Bella seemed to make this couple light up even more. With their busy lives as a Firefighter and Ashley spending her time at school to be a dental hygienist, this cute little family had a wonderful break as they spent the day at the park. Congratulations on your fantastic engagement!
