Winter engagement photos in Hermosa Beach, CA
Elise and Burt’s December engagement session with Brian Leahy Photography was at the Hermosa Beach Pier. How cute is their proposal story?
Burt and I met during our junior year of college at the University of Denver. One of my sorority sisters happened to be friends with Burt and his roommates, so she insisted that a group of us attend a housewarming party they were throwing. After meeting that way a couple of times he asked me out on an official date!
I had absolutely no idea that Burt was going to propose, right up until he got down on one knee. It was a Saturday morning and we had decided to go out for some brunch. I came into the living room ready to go and Burt just sat there on the sofa, stalling – very unlike him! I sat down trying to figure out what was up and he pulled out a tiny box out from behind the sofa pillows.
When it came time to choose a location for our engagement photos, the Hermosa Beach Pier was at the top of our list. Burt and I lived just a few short blocks away for about 3 years. We spent a lot of time there so it had a great deal of sentimental value as well as offering a lot of really beautiful scenery. We could not have imagined our photos anywhere else! - Elise
