love shoot: sweet california beach engagement {geena & kenny}

Morning lovelies! We’re continuing our beach-y theme just a little longer with this morning’s cute-as-a-button couple’s dreamy California engagement shoot.  Geena and Kenny ventured back to one of their favourite dating spots, the beautiful Cabrillo Beach House, San Pedro, with Sun and Sparrow Photography to capture their romantic & fun shoot.  I love the beautiful surroundings and the cute use of the ampersand prop!

Here’s a few words from the lovely bride-to-be ~

“We met as high school freshmen in speech class at the age of sixteen.  For our first date I asked Kenny to a dance, where we shared our first dance to Savage Garden’s “I Knew I Loved You.” We graduated high school and went to college together at the University of California, Berkeley, rode bikes across the Golden Gate Bridge and raised a stray orange cat named Scribble. Following college, we had a long distance relationship from San Diego and New York and spent our limited time together enjoying the beaches of La Jolla Cove, and Times Square on New Year’s Eve.

The proposal came as a bit of a surprise! I had given Kenny a window but did not know where, when, or how it was going to happen. It was a Saturday late morning. I had just woken up after sleeping in and went to take a shower, nothing special there. When I got out of the shower, wrapped in a towel with dripping hair, I stepped outside the bathroom to see Scribble, who not unusually was waiting for me outside the door. What was unusual was that he was wearing a pink collar (Scribble prefers to be in the nude). Curiosity piqued, I picked him up and noticed something shiny on said collar which turned out to be a diamond ring. By then, Kenny came up to me and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was so caught off guard that I was briefly speechless, although I think I said yes!”
