A FAR AWAY ROMANCE // YELENA & STEPHEN’S SAN FRANCISCO ENGAGEMENT

It’s not often that I get the opportunity to plan behind the scenes before a groom even proposes, but that is the special privilege you’re given when your bff is about to get engaged! After months of messaging back and forth with Stephen, he had his whole proposal plan set!

Now, this is a special romance between these two – you have to hear their story. A year ago, Lena made a huge decision to move to South Korea and teach. She knew only one person there and bravely made her cross-continental move. Shortly after, she was charmed & pursued by a fellow American teacher! Their love blossomed quickly and within months they knew. They knew they wanted to be together forever. They knew God had planned the intersection of their lives. They knew each other was “the one”.

On their summer vacation, they travelled to the East Bay (Lena’s hometown) to visit. During their trip, Stephen took Lena to her favorite place in the world, Muir Woods and proposed after a beautiful hike. She was thrilled! Then as they finished the hike & began to head towards the car, my boyfriend & I surprised her by coming into town for a few days. The next day, we drove into the city and spent the afternoon strolling around the Conservatory of Flowers – a bucket list item of mine! It was stunning & I couldn’t help but take some snaps of the newly engaged. Here are some of my favs from our Muir Woods engagement photos – enjoy!!
