How We Met

Nasser and I met through a mutual friend while boating. I’m a photographer and brought my camera along that day. Nas captivated me with his mystery, and most of the photos I took that day were of him! I think he’s so cool, I even dressed up like him for Halloween one year.

How They Asked

Fast forward 5 years later, we were visiting his family and friends for the weekend in California. Our schedules were packed and I kept asking if we could spend some time together just the two of us. He said he wasn’t sure we’d have time. On our last day, Nas casually asked if I wanted to go for a drive. We stopped at a few beaches eventually finding ourselves at the Montage in Laguna.

I saw something in the distance and said ‘look! they’re setting up a styled shoot!’ It wasn’t until we were a few feet away that I realized it was my own face in the framed photos which were part of the most romantic beach lounge setup overlooking the sunset. He asked if I would be his forever and I said YES!
