From the Petals to the Puppy, This Engagement is Pure Perfection

Well, I think we've found one of my favorite engagement shoots yet. Between the vibrant colors, gorgeous florals, the Palm Springs setting and the chic style, it's pretty darn close to perfect. But wait, there's one more piece. And it's this puppy. I'm left speechless... bumping this shoot by Rebecca Yale to beyond perfect and more. I've already favorited this feature because there is no doubt I'll want to revisit it again... and again... and again.

From Rebecca Yale... Mallory and Surge travelled from New York to their family's home in beautiful Palm Springs for their engagement session. Their wedding will be taking place this fall in Palm Springs with Ro & Co Events and they wanted the photos to capture the beautiful vibe of the town, but have a different feel than their wedding images so we shot all around La Quinta taking advantage of the beautiful desert flowers and unique landscaping at the property. Their adorable fur-baby Buffy joined in on the fun and joined her parents for a few photos although she seemed to prefer munching on her floral wreath over posing for pictures!

From the Bride-to-be... The perfect proposal may not exist. Nothing is perfect, but what's significant about the proposal is very clear to me; ​it's about the person you love more than anything asking you to spend the rest of your lives together even when everything goes not quite as planned... When my fiancé, Surge, planned to propose, it was supposed to be near perfect. He had been planning for months to propose on a picturesque cliff that overlooked the ocean in Santorini. Lucky for me he still proposed even though the 48 hours leading up to the proposal was a scene from one of those action packed crime comedy movies. We were robbed and robbed of everything down to our clothes and suitcases. And yes... you guessed it, we were robbed of the ring. But we made the best of a bad situation and learned something new in the process - we truly can get through anything together. Surge went through with his proposal as planned! He took me to a private dinner in Imerovigil. Our table sat on the edge of an infinity pool that overlooked the ocean and Grecian sunset. As we stood up for a photo, Surge bent down on one knee. He asked me to be his wife and I said yes. I told him I would love nothing more. In that moment, I didn’t care about the ring. The hardware is not what a proposal is about. It’s about the love and respect you have for one another. It’s the desire and commitment to spend the rest of your lives together. In my book, I don’t know what’s more romantic than that.
