Orange County Engagement Photographer | Ruba + Elman

Hello dears,

I have a super special Session to share with you all today. My little baby brother, who’s not so little anymore, is engaged! Ahhhh!!!! He has found his other half, his soulmate, his one true love, and I couldn’t be happier! Yeay!!!

Wedding plans are in the air and will hopefully be happening some time next year. I’ll keep you all posted. But in the meantime, we decided to go ahead and photograph their Engagement Session. I love photographing couples in looooove! We had such a fun time together! My sissy-in-law, Ruba, also has a beautiful 5 year old daughter and it’s been such a pleasure getting to know both of them. Not only is my brother giving me a sister, but he’s also giving my girls a new cousin! Yeay!

Congratulations to Elman and Ruba! May you always keep each other happy. Enjoy the photos and the love shared between these two lovebirds!

By the way, if you are thinking of popping the question, I’d LOVE to photograph your Proposal Session. And if you are recently engaged, let me photograph your Engagement Session. I love photographing couples in looooove.

Love,

Milana

Tony + Sovy Engagement (Orange County Engagement Photographer)

Hi loves,

I’m so excited to share this BEAUTIFUL Engagement Session with you all! About a year ago, I photographed Tony and Sovy’s Suprirse Proposal on a gondola! It was sooooo beautiful and magical and ohhh so romantic! I mean, come on, he proposed on a GONDOLA people! I photographed the proposal from land, while they were on the gondola on the water of course. It was pretty darn cool! But don’t take my word for it, you can check out their proposal for yourself here!

And now this year, they wanted to do a proper Engagement shoot where they can both dress up nicely, have outfit changes, a picnic and bring props. We had so much fun together! We just roamed around and Tony and Sovy just kept hugging and kissing and looking so in love, my camera was properly mad at me because of how much I used it, hehe. I was definitely trigger happy. Ohhh and the best part, I get to photograph their Wedding at the end of the year! Excited doesn’t come to justify how I feel! And I know I’m getting carried away, but one day, I’ll get to photograph their gorgeous babies!!!! Weeee!

Anyway, sorry for rambling on. Once you see these images, you will know why this Engagement Session was so much fun!!! Enjoy!

Oh and if you are thinking about proposing to your sweetheart, don’t forget to contact me to help you capture the special moment! I love photographing Surprise Proposals and also Engagement Sessions throughout orange County, CA.

Marlena + Eddie Surprise Proposal (Orange County Proposal Photographer)

Hi loves!

Ohh my Goodness! I have another Surprise Proposal to share with you all! I loooooove proposals so much! They are so unpredictable, yet fun and exciting and super quick all at the same time. The rush is real and I absolutely LOVE it!

This particular surprise proposal was EVEN more special than usual! Why??? Because I know the sweet bride-to-be! And this is all by complete coincidence too! Eddie was just looking for a proposal photographer and happened to come across my website. He loved my work and decided to book me. Once we were doing all the fun contract stuff, I realized that his bride-to-be’s name sounded familiar. She was my eldest daughter’s Extended-Kinder teacher just a few years ago! We see each other just about everyday when I pickup and drop off my girls at school. Whenever Marlena would say hi to me the entire week before the proposal, I tried to keep the conversation to a minimum and even tried to avoid eye contact with her, hahaha. Sounds funny now, but I had to keep it a surprise!

Then on the day of the proposal, I wore a disguise just in case! I hid behind in between some houses in Newport Beach and wore a huge beach hat and sunglasses. Once Eddie proposed and Marlena said “YES” and accepted his ring and hugs and kisses, I revealed my true identity.  It was so much fun and such an exciting moment to be a part of!

Congratulations again to these sweet lovebirds!!! Wishing them lots of happiness together. They seem so much in love and I was honored to photograph this special time for them.

If you are thinking about proposing to your sweetheart, please consider hiring a professional to photograph that super special moment for you! I would absolutely LOVE to help you! I photograph Surprise Proposals all over Orange County, CA.

Thank you and Enjoy!

Mesrop + Aleen Surprise Proposal (Orange County Proposal Photographer)

Hello Loves!

With Valentine’s Day in the air, I thought it would be perfect to share this sweet surprise proposal!

Mesrop contacted me several weeks before the proposal and was trying to figure out the perfect date and location. After many emails back and forth, we finally decided on the mysterious tower in Laguna Beach, called “La Tour.” It was the perfect backdrop for a proposal! He enlisted the friend of his soon to be fiance. Her friend disguised herself as a guy and arrived there first and set up the special “Will you Marry me?” sign along with champagne and flowers. It was so beautiful!

Once I spotted Mesrop and Aleen walking towards the tower, I just pretended I was a silly tourist just taking photos of nonsense stuff. Then once they passed me, I started nonchalantly following them and caught the moment when she flipped over the sign and when she turned around, Mesrop was down on his knee. It was so beautiful and ohhh so romantic! Aleen was really surprised and couldn’t stop smiling!

Congratulations Mesrop and Aleen! Wishing you two a beautiful life together! XOXOXO

Omer + Savannah Surprise Proposal (Orange County Proposal Photographer)

Helllooo loves,

I’d like to introduce you all to a super adorable couple, Omer and Savannah! They are just newly engaged and I was honored to have been there to capture their special moment!

Omer called me on the morning of the proposal! Yeap, same day proposal! He already had a photographer booked, but they cancelled on him at the last minute and luckily I was available! He had such a perfect plan and all I had to do was play the part!

After their very first date at a restaurant in Corona, they sat outside by a lake on a bench when someone approached them and asked if they could take a photo of them. They love that moment and treasure that photo very much. So 1 year later, Omer wanted to recreate that very moment.

Since I never met them before, I had to recognize them from a few photos that Omer emailed me. Once I spotted them, I just pretended I was taking photos of trees and ducks and such. I nonchalantly followed them and kept taking photos of my surroundings so Savannah wouldn’t get any ideas.  Once they were settled on a bench, I approached them and told them they how cute they looked together and asked if I could take a photo of them. Savannah’s shocked face was priceless! After I took the photo, I asked if I could take another one right by the lake and as soon as I did that, Omer got down on one knee and proposed!!! It was so sweet, short and beautiful!!! And of course, she said YES!!!

After the proposal, we took some cute Engagement photos and had so much fun. We had to work quickly because the sun had just set behind the mountains and time was of the essence! Omer is a marine and just a week after the proposal, he was deployed out of the country. This is currently his 3rd deployment and hope he returns back home safely to his fiance and the rest of his family very soon. Thank you for all that you do Omer and Congratulations again to you and Savannah on your Engagement!!!

Are you in loooove? If you’re thinking about proposing to your sweetheart, call me! I’d love to chat with you and help make your perfect proposal come true! I’m very good at hiding and I’m also a good actress, plus my photography skills are pretty good too, hehe. I just looooove LOVE!!!

Tony + Sovy Surprise Proposal (Orange County Surprise Proposal Photographer)

Hello loves,

I’m so excited to share this session with you. I had the pleasure of photographing Tony and Sovy’s surprisal proposal! It all happened at sunset on a gondola drifting along the Pacific Ocean in Long Beach and it was ohhhh so romantic!!!

Tony did such a great job planning out every single detail! He called me a few weeks before the proposal. We met up and planned exactly where I would be waiting for them once they pass through on their gondola ride.  The gondolier threw a bottle into the water and pointed it out and Sovy reached down to grab it. She realized it was a message in a bottle and as she was reading the sweet message, Tony got down on one knee and proposed! And she said “YES!!” I captured all of the photos from the shore. Afterwards, Tony pointed to me and she was so excited that their special moment was captured! I had to hide and pretend I was taking photos of other random people and even asked if a group of guys would pose for me so in case Sovy saw me from the gondola she wouldn’t get suspicious. We gotta do what we gotta do, right?! I couldn’t spoil the big surprise!

Once they were finished with their gondola ride, I met them on the other side where they originally started. We had fun taking a few more photos together before they went off to celebrate! Gondola Getaway in Long Beach was such a perfect location and they helped Tony with the planning. They average a proposal a day! Isn’t that so fun? I love romance!

Congratulations again to the lovebirds!!! I had so much fun photographing their surprise proposal! If you are planning to propose to your sweetheart, let me capture those sweet memories for you! It would be my absolute pleasure!

XOXO,

Milana

Elizabeth & Zack Engagement (Orange County Engagement Photographer)

Hello Dearest Fans,

I met the lovely Elizabeth and Zack last week for their Engagement Session. We took photos at the beautiful Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, CA.  The views there are just absolutely breathtaking and I’m so happy we chose that location!

This hot couple knew all of the right moves and were super sweet together. I love how intimate Engagement Sessions can be and how you can see the love between two people.  Not to really quote the Spice Girls, but you can really see how “2 become 1.”

This is just a Sneak Peek of their Engagement Session for now, more photos are coming soon.

Enjoy and check back often!

Sherry & Saturday Engagement Session (Engagement Photographer-Atlanta, GA)

Hello Loves!

I absolutely LOVE Engagement Sessions! They are way too much fun!  Most of the time, Engagement Sessions are the first time that the couple get a professional photoshoot.  It gives myself and the couple a chance to get to know each other and also for the lovebirds to relax and get used to the camera.  It’s great practice for the BIG DAY! Speaking of the BIG day, Sherry & Saturday are tying the knot this August 31st in Atlanta. I’m super excited to fly in from California to photograph their special day! It’s going to be EPIC! I had the pleasure of photographing Saturday’s sister’s wedding a couple of years ago.  And now it’s the little brother’s turn! Awww!

Sherry and Saturday were so super sweet! They braved the super chilly Atlanta weather in January and still managed to do lots of hugging, kissing, handholding and snuggling!  See why I love engagement sessions?  Seeing other people so in love makes me oh so happy! LOVE is a beautiful thing!

Congrats again to this sweet couple on their Engagement!  I can’t wait to share the BIG day with you all!  But for now, enjoy a small snapshot of our super fun engagement session in Lawrenceville, GA.

Oh and just in case you all were wondering, Narin’s make-up was done professionally by Mimi Oh.  She is pretty amazing!
