I celebrated Gus and Kat’s engagement with them back in June 2019! I just celebrated them for the second time for their sunset Yosemite National Park elopement adventure! It was SO good to meet up with them again, catch up and think back other engagement session just 1.5 years ago. Here’s their proposal story:
Gustavo said: “It all started in January 2019, when I decided to propose to my girlfriend. I started to look at rings and when I finally saw one I knew was right for her I decided to take her parents to dinner to get their blessing and permission (without her knowing of course). My mom and her parents were the only ones that knew I was going to ask. Once I decided I wanted to propose to her on our anniversary/her bday trip, I got in touch with you for the engagement photos because how could we pass up such an incredible opportunity to have the most amazing photos! Then I later decided to partner up with Jackie Boehme to record the whole thing at cathedral rock. It was so incredibly hard to keep all these secrets from her; for example telling her I found Jackie on trip advisor and a coworker had recommended to get one of our hikes recorded. One problem I encountered was hiding the ring from someone I live with for three months. Switching it between my luggage, then backpack, to my razor case throughout our Airbnb’s to make sure she didn’t run into it was tricky.” Kat told me that the best part about his proposal to her was “The fact that it was so unconventional, different, and unexpected! But I wouldn’t expect anything less from him. I was so surprised! I thought I would’ve known when he was planning on asking, but I was so wrong! I’m so glad I didn’t pick up on anything!”
The two of them are always such a good time and so easy to be around. We had so much fun exploring Yosemite and taking in all the views!
