I ended up this year with an engagement shoot of John and Maggie in Paris.
We started this engagement session with a surprise proposal from John to Maggie. Coming from the US, John and I had been planning every details of his proposal so that it would be perfect prior to their arrival in Paris. I absolutely love the moment when Maggie was so happy and amazed at the same time with a ring on her hand.
We then continued the shooting in Jardin du Luxembourg (Luxembourg Garden). We agree that this beautiful green park makes a fantastic little escape in the bustling Paris. Even though it was pretty cold outside, but Maggie and John were super great models. We had a lovely time taking pictures as well as getting to know more each other.
A little more about our couple of this engagement session:
Met in university, Maggie and John had been in love for 6 years. As winter is not that common in Los Angeles, so to experience winter in Paris was quite special for them. Now, especially with the proposal!
This ring is older than 180 years old. This was passed on to John from his grandparents’ generations.
The fact that both families and friends of Maggie and John knew about his surprise proposal, except Maggie; so kudos to John for being able to keep this secret so well! Must have been really hard.
Congratulations for both of you!
