On my way to a photo-shoot I always feel the butterflies… well more like EAGLES are soaring through my stomach! Its every emotion… scared, excited, weary, confident, insecure, hungry -well that’s all the time! I’m just a hot mess! I can’t wait until these feelings turn into confidence!
To say that I had fun on this photo shoot would be an understatement! I had a BLAST!!!! Sometimes in life you get those moments where you feel so proud & you’re on this natural HIGH! Well I was definitely floating on clouds after shooting this lovely couple!
I usually find it hard to choose the photos that I’m going to post on my blog because they're all like my little babies & I don't want to leave any of them out. Ooo I sound like a creepy lady with a million cats! Anyway this was definitely the situation when choosing these photos!
Getting back to these hot tamales... Kim & Ha met in High school through a mutual friend, who just so happened to be Kim's boyfriend at the time! Things didn't work out between them & fate brought these two love birds together!
On their 7th year anniversary they went on a camping trip with the family in Yosemite. Ha wanted to take a hike up to the waterfalls so he could propose there... After a long scary hike he had found the perfect spot & built up the courage... But there was no ring in that pocket of his! He had a silent minor heart attack wondering if the ring fell out or did he leave it back at camp! Needless to say the hike back to camp was terrifying for him! When he got to the tent IT WAS THERE! So he popped the question later that night on their anniversary dinner! Good backup plan! Thank you Kim & Ha soooo much for allowing me to be apart of this special moment in your lives & capture your love!

Im in love with her dress!!!!
I wonder what Ha was telling her because he was easily making her giggle through this whole shoot! Which was perfect for me because it made my job easier to get these awesome real laughs!
