Amit and Veena dated for 7 years before Amit surprised Veena with the question of “will you marry me” in Yosemite National Park. Even though both Amit and Veena were already planning their Engagement party and Wedding, Amit still did not give Veena the ring. He wanted that moment to be epic and special. So Amit started planning an engagement photoshoot in Yosemite and reached out to us for help capturing his big day. After one of our meetings, Amit directly messaged us and told us his secret. He wanted to surprise his girlfriend at the photoshoot and officially proposal to her - right in middle of the most beautiful place on earth. We loved that idea and of course agreed to be part of it. Over the weeks, we planned the photo and video shoot. We followed the weather in Yosemite and learned that only the valley will be accessible for us during April as the snow still covered the mountainous peaks. That’s ok, we still knew we’d get amazing shots for both photography and cinematography during spring. We we all (we really were) super excited to capture the scenery at Yosemite with the beautiful couple. The day we arrived in Yosemite was simply perfect. Warm, beautiful and not a lot of people. Perfect conditions to capture a Yosemite proposal. So we got to work - capturing both photography and cinematography as the day unfolded. Especially when Amit got on his knee asking Veena the burning question and was finally able to place the ring on her finger. Enjoy the MODERN Yosemite Engagement video (above) from the day and here are the photography results....

When the fruit and nut trees started blooming last spring in Yuba City, it wasn’t the only good news that the Thiara family was awaiting. One of their sons, Harmon got engaged to the beautiful Betha and they began planning their late spring Indian wedding. This gorgeous Indian couple met in high school and their love blossomed from there into an amazing relationship. Blossoms and fruit trees are very familiar to Harmon. He spends a lot of his time in the family orchards so photographing this gorgeous couple’s spring inspired engagement session in their own orchard was an awesome idea. We picked out the prime blooming period and went out to capture these amazing engagement photos. Betha couldn’t stop smiling as Harmon gave her a tour of his blossoming orchards. Their love for each other and beautiful smiles deeply enhanced the beauty of the blooming trees. The romantic scenery and gorgeous couple surely helped me produce some of my favorite engagement photos....
