Golden Hills Engagement Session

How do you savor summer? I’m taking note from this pair, who basically walked on sunshine. It’s a love sesh from the lens of Honey Honey Photography that’ll have you dreaming of fields of gold. Sharing sweet kisses and elegant outfits (an ode to their Viva Las Vegas beginning) the gallery is your jackpot, and it’s waiting for you in the The Vault!

From Honey Honey PhotographyTony and Diana met in Viva Las Vegas! Diana was traveling the world at the time and took a small break to go home to California for 3 weeks. Within that time, she went to Las Vegas with girlfriends while he was there for a bachelor party. Tony lived in Orange County while Diana resides in The Bay Area. 7 months later was when they reunited for the first time when Tony drove all the way to San Jose just so he can take Diana out on a date :)

First date went well and continued with weekly back and fourth traveling. 6 months later, he realized he couldn’t stay away so he packed his bags, rented a uHaul and moved to the beautiful Silicon Valley. 2 years later, he asked for her hand in marriage and she said yes!
