Words from the photographer:
"Michelle and AJ reside in New Jersey, but I was lucky enough to catch them during a California vacation where the pair was visiting AJ’s sister who lives in the area. They had recently become engaged the month before at a romantic French restaurant where AJ got down on one knee and popped the question during dinner. AJ (with a little help from family & friends) picked out the most gorgeous pear cut ring which Michelle had hinted was her favorite. Guys-this ring in so stunning- can’t wait for you to see it below! These cuties met back in college and have gone on countless adventures together. Six years later, they both knew their destiny together was inevitable after recently moving in together. Even a stranger could simply glance at these two and gather, just from their sweet chemistry and the way they look at each other, that they were going to live happily ever after.
To Michelle and AJ- thank so very much for allowing me to photograph your beautiful engagement. You two are so extremely photogenic that I quite literally didn’t want to stop taking your photo! I had a blast romping around that stunning property with you. You two looked so peaceful and romantic as you clicked your wine glasses on the porch together, snuggled in the vineyards, and walked hand in hand through the olive trees. You guys are a gorgeous, kind, warm couple who are going to make the most stunning Bride and Groom!"
