Destiny brought Eli & Limayri together at his family’s jewelry store. Limayri was working there and Eli had come in to help out when he spotted the woman he’d one day surprise with a romantic proposal.
I was excited to be apart of Eli’s surprise proposal and engagement photo shoot. How did he pull it off? He invited his sweetheart for a day of enjoying some Arizona Vineyards. Their first stop was at Javelina Leap Vineyard where I pretended to be working on a photography project taking advantage of the perfect weather and dappled sunlight coming through trees. Eli was confident in his love for Limayri but nervous about pulling this off. After a few glasses of wine and pictures, Eli made a few excuses to leave Limayri in order to get the ring and then hand it off to Kaleo so it wouldn't be sticking out of his pocket. But Limayri still began to get suspicious that this might be it. Nevertheless, when Eli got down on his knee under the pergola and slipped on Limayri’s favorite rings from the family jewelry store on her finger, she was overcome with emotion. The day continued with another photography session and more wine at Page Springs Cellars Winery and Vineyard. What a glorious location with so any beautiful backdrops. Our lovely couple were happy to kiss in front of the winery, the flowers, and the view of the vineyards. We all had so much fun together getting to know one another. Once the photo-shoot was done we even stayed at Page Springs Winery enjoyed a bite to eat over good conversation.
The proposal was at Javelina Leap Vineyard in Page Springs Arizona. What a beautiful moment to photograph! The look on Limaryi's face was priceless <3
After a few glasses of wine....
And a lot of kisses.....
And a lot of ooo -ing and ahhh-ing over the beautiful ring....
We went to Page Springs Cellars, Vineyard, and Winery and took more pictures!
We had a BLAST together! They made AMAZING models for page Springs Vineyards ;)
And after photos we drank more wine and had a bite to eat over many wonderful stories and great conversation!
Thank you, Eli and Limayri for allowing me to be a small part of your magical day. I will always remember how Limayri’s gorgeous smile shined even more brightly each time she looked at Eli and the laughter you two shared so generously. It feels like we gained two new friends. Good luck with buying your dream property and home, your wedding, and all that life has in store for you.
