SO SO excited for my cousin Kirsten and her fiance, Rusty!! He popped the question in San Francisco while they were here on vacation and we all got to celebrate together and take photos the very next day!! He proposed to her in the Japanese Tea Gardens and when they told us the story over dinner it brought tears of joy to all of our eyes! They have been dating since high-school and what started as a friendship (Rusty would offer to give Kirsten rides home from school because it was "on his way" only to later discover he lived way across town) has turned into such a sweet love. They are adorable together and this came through even more in the photos, I had such a fantastic day going around San Francisco with both of them and experiencing their engagement when it was so new. I got to see old friends start their journey of love all over again, it was amazing to watch and capture their joy.
