A trip to Hawaii brought Iam and Bri together. No, not the typical scene of sandy beaches and beautiful sunsets, but rather a grueling work trip. In charge of lighting design for an event, Bri traveled with her boss for the trip, aware that she would be meeting Iam. “I heard Iam’s name plenty of times but knew nothing about him. When we were first introduced, the first thing I noticed were his striking blue eyes.”
The 20+ hour days left little time to relax and enjoy Hawaii, but Iam and Bri did begin to enjoy each other’s company as they helped each other and chatted into all hours of the night. “As badly as I wanted the trip to be over, I didn’t want what we had to end.” It became obvious that Iam didn’t want it to end either; when Bri landed in L.A. after the trip, she had a text waiting for her from Iam.
With Bri living in Connecticut at the time and Iam in California, the two relied on digital communication and visits to get to know each other and become the couple they are today. Their future was solidified on Christmas morning this past year when Iam proposed.
Thank you to the wonderful Rancho Victoria Vineyard for the beautiful backdrop for this engagement shoot!
