Hannah and Christian

How We Met

Hannah and Christian first met while working at In-n-Out after high school. Despite the fact that Hannah was dating someone else, Christian still had eyes for her. While he trained her, they started getting to know each other and he slowly began falling for her. Soon after getting the job, Hannah broke up with her boyfriend. While chemistry continued to build with Christian over time, she eventually said yes to a date! He surprised her with tickets to a pirate dinner theater show in Buena Park, California. Even though he was feeling very under the weather, he was too excited to let anything stop him from going on this date! They had an amazing time and continued to date all through college!

How they asked

Fast forward a few years and Christian began planning the proposal as they were finishing up their last year of college. Hannah was finishing up school at Cal Poly Pomona and Christian at Cal State Fullerton. They were already planning to take their senior pictures for college together, so Christian reached out to Three16 Photography to take their photos and help with the surprise proposal! Through a series of secret texts and phone calls, Christian and Jerrick developed a perfect plan that Hannah wouldn’t see coming.

Towards the end of the session, Jerrick from Three16 Photography posed a shot of Hannah standing a few feet behind Christian first, so she wouldn’t think anything of the next pose. Next, their placing was reversed, and Christian was posed behind the love of his life. He came up behind her and surprised her by getting down on one knee. Just as she was about to start crying, he grabbed her right hand instead of her left. She laughed so hard that she accidently knocked the ring out of Christian’s hands. She of course said yes with tears of joy flowing!


These two love birds are planning an elopement in Big Sur, and a backyard reception to be in the future! We’re excited for what the future holds for these two!
