Dayne and Tiffany
How We Met
I met Tiffany when I was going to UCLA 5 years ago. I was studying for finals one night and she Snapchatted me saying she was headed up to Santa Monica with her friends. I was studying at a coffee shop with my buddies and I told them I needed to leave and borrowed their car to go get my “laptop” wink-wink ;) I actually wanted to go back home and get ready to see her. We met that night and it was our first kiss. The rest was history!
how they asked
I contacted a photographer on Yelp (Morningbird Photography) and told her I was planning on proposing to Tiffany. I told her I wanted epic photos of the proposal because Tiff deserved it! Gianna was really helpful in the proposal process and she told Tiff it was. Couples shoot! We decided on Mammoth Lake, CA, where Gianna scouted the locations to find the right spot.
It was freezing that day (about 30 degrees, light snow and 40mph winds!). Luckily, Tiff was excited about the shoot and we just rolled with it. Gianna told Tiff to close her eyes for a “surprise” reaction and I got on my knee and said, “Honey, I will always remember the first night we met, and I asked if it was okay to kiss you.
Since that night, I’ve always known you were the one that would make me the happiest man alive. I couldn’t imagine living life without you, and I can’t wait for all the new memories we are going to create in our new life together. I promise to make you smile and laugh each and every day for the rest of our lives.
I promise to love you forever and be the man and husband you deserve and to treat you like my queen. Will you marry me?” She started to cry and I asked if that was a yes and she said, “Of course it’s a yes!” It was one the best days of my life and I am so glad we have these photos to relive this day! We also just bought our first house together and couldn’t be happier. I feel like the luckiest man alive!
