After almost two years of planning, I can finally introduce you to Danielle and CJ. And if you think spending two years working together is a long time...Wait until you hear how long they have been together!
Having met in high school, Danielle and CJ have spent the last 16 years together. They started a beautiful family together, traveled the world, and built a home. CJ knew it was time to propose, and he enlisted the help of the couple's 8 year old daughter in putting together a Birthday Dinner. Before hand, he told the family that they were going up to the top of the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas to see the view of the strip. Danielle, not thinking anything of it, strolled around the observation deck with their new baby in tow. As she turned the corner she found CJ down on one knee, holding a breathtaking cancary diamond, while their oldest daughter held a sign that read "Will You Marry Me?" After a wild "YES" and some photos, the "birthday party" turned into an engagement party with all of their family and friends.
Now, with their two little girls by their side, they will finally be married in what I promise will be a stunning, romantic, and insanely intimate wedding. For a small gathering of nearly 200 of family and friends!
But first, we needed to properly introduce them. And for that, we needed photos.
Wedding Photographer Brian Leahy is used to shooting around the world, but for this session we headed into LA and to his backyard. We wanted something glamorous, and the Disney Concert Hall offered up clean lines, gorgeous metallics, and just a touch of gritty LA.
If you fall in love with this couple - and how could you not? - go ahead and leave them a little note congratulating them on their upcoming wedding. The comments section is open below!
