Hillarie and Lance are high school sweethearts and grew up together being best friends. They were so young when they first met that they can’t actually remember it but Hillarie remembers thinking as a little girl that one day she would marry that boy named Lance. 🙂 For the proposal Lance had it all planned out and Hillarie had no idea what was going on. He planned a day for her and her friends to go to Disneyland but the whole time Hillarie thought it was an early 21st birthday gift for her and her friends from their parents. She and her friends had a fun morning and that afternoon had stopped in front of the castle to take pictures. At just the right time Hillarie turned around and Lance was standing there, then he took her hands and got down on one knee to propose. She was in shock! When he took the ring out of his pocket, that’s when Hillarie began to cry. He asked her to marry him and she nodded yes! A crowd had surrounded them during this time and began to clap and cheer for them with photographers snapping away at this big moment in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle!
I loved photographing the love between these two during their engagement session and couldn’t be more happy for the two of them. We had fun coming up with things to do and since Lance had taken a photography class he would sometimes comment on why he knew I had picked a location for the lighting or composition. One of my favorite things about their session was just how evident it was that they were so happy just being together. I know God will use these two in ways they never imagined and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in June!
