Maybe it’s the proposal story or hearing about how a couple met but there’s just something so cute about hearing other people’s engagement stories and with Valentines Day almost a month away you can bet they’ll be a lot of engagement sessions being featured on the blog. If you guys have ever been to the Santa Monica Beach you’ll know how incredible it is and just by looking at these pictures I wish I could jet set to California right… about.. now.. Today’s couple Athena and Brandon planned a fun-filled engagement session that is filled to the brim with so much love which you can easily see through the photos below. These two have such upbeat personalities I couldn’t help but adore and be excited to share these photos all amazingly captured by Melvin Gilbert Photography.

Words from the photographer Melvin Gilbert Photography

Athena and Brandon have been together for three years. They met in Hawaii by chance as they were both on vacation. Being a support to each other, Brandon is always sure to keep Athena on track while Athena makes sure that he gets out and lets loose once in awhile. As they walked around the shopping areas or visited the Santa Monica Pier, you could tell that they were totally absorbed in each other’s world. Having fun, smiling, and joking around as they visited different places, it was beautiful chemistry right before my eyes! As they walked along the beach at the Santa Monica Pier, I was sure that they were both reminiscing about the proposal.

When they has visited Puerto Rico together, where Athena’s family is from, the beach was empty apart from them. It as a perfect moment and Brandon took advantage of it. Taking a knee and proposing, it was the start of something magical! Capturing some of this magic as they can across the beach together or posed for some creative shots, it was great to see such a fun couple! Finishing our day at the LACMA, these two looked incredible as they posed near the lamp post display. Lighting up the essence of love in their hearts, the scene was exquisite. Everything about this day was great and I couldn’t have been happier for these two!
