GUYS I am feeling the holiday stress big time. There’s still presents to be wrapped, cookies to bake, and so many other things to do before Thursday. Let’s not mention that Evie much prefers practicing to crawl instead of sleeping right now. Trying to take ALL the breaths and just focus on the family time that awaits. For today we have a gorgeous engagement session from L.A. Birdie Photography (her stuff is just SO gorgeous!) featuring the lovely Aarti & Dominik. You might remember Aarti from a giveaway we did with her luxury organic hair oil company. They went for a hike (love this idea) for their engagement pictures, bringing along their adorable rescue pups. Let’s start the week with LOVE shall we?
Dom and Aarti met, by sheer coincidence, on a cold winter evening in Washington, DDC. Him: handsome, dressed in flannel, with an unidentifiable accent. Her: the most beautiful girl in the world, the lighthouse in the middle of a storm. They bonded over a mutual love of rock climbing and the rest was history.
Fast-forward to May 2015. On a short trip to Aarti’s hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia, after seeking approval from Aarti’s parents and her first love, a cocker spaniel named Mowgli, Dom proposed on the summit of Old Rag Mountain with a simple question:
“Hey, how do you want to spend the rest of your life?”
