Makaila was modeling for her friend on a beautiful day while at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach. Little did she know that her boyfriend, Ryan, had other plans. As she walked down the steps that led to her future, he patiently waited with "Marry Me" written with white rose petals in the sand. It was only fitting to have their engagement session at the same place where he got down on one knee. This April, Makaila and Ryan will be married at the beautiful Old Ranch Country Club and I couldn't be more excited to document it!

It's always special when a couple chooses to incorporate something unique that reflects their story together.

The first half of the engagement session was cooking their favorite recipe, since they love cooking together!

The gorgeous candle lit table set up was complete with a cascading eucalyptus runner. So pretty!

A fun way to save the date written with scattered flour on the granite table top!

That same path that led her to Ryan down on one knee...

I'll end on this note, because they enjoy riding bikes together at the beach. Makaila and Ryan, April can't come soon enough to celebrate your love story!
