Christine & Ricardo

August 27, 2015

Ricardo sent me an email a few days before their engagement session and told me that he wanted to surprise Christine.  When he had originally proposed to her, it was in their living room in their pajamas with Christine’s mother’s modest engagement ring.  It was all very sweet at the time, but he wanted a do-over.  He had since ordered a custom engagement ring for Christine, and wanted to propose to her in a way that would blow her away.  When he told me of his plan to surprise her during their engagement session with her new ring, I was so excited!

We met at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and took some photos in the Japanese Tea Garden, then took a stroll through the music concourse.  Finally, after much anticipation, Ricardo sat Christine down to read her a letter and pulled out her GORGEOUS new ring!  She was blown away, and it made for some incredibly sweet photos!
