Carbon Canyon Engagement : Brianna & Kris

Brianna and Kris’s Carbon Canyon engagement session is truly a stunning day. We had amazing weather, but more importantly the connection between these two is amazing to see. One of the parts of their session that I truly loved, was I told them to bring something special or a glass of wine to enjoy. They showed up with their bible and did a devotional during their session. It is always so powerful to me when I get to photograph fellow believers.

Carbon Canyon engagement session is such a unique place here in Southern California that makes doing photos so much more enjoyable. This quiet and serene place is just the perfect place to capture the love between two people. I enjoy walking around a location like Carbon Canyon with my couples and see what personality comes out.

Written by the couple:

How did you meet each other and what did you think when you met: Brianna – We actually met in junior high (Kris doesn’t remember), but says I was mean to him in high school. I thought Kris was cute for a “scrub” since he was only in 7th grade and I was in 8th. We had reconnected on social media and quickly went on a date. I couldn’t believe I finally got to go on a date with him after all these years and really enjoyed getting to know him. Kris: the first memory I have of Brianna is of her being very mean to me in a group setting, but the more I got to know Brianna, as we were dating, I quickly found out that’s just because she’s super awkward, and I absolutely love that!

Tell us your proposal story!

For our 1 year anniversary, we made all sorts of plans. Not 1 of them worked out. We drove about an hour to try a new restaurant and it was closed for construction. Since that night, every time we made out of the ordinary plans, it NEVER worked out! That’s exactly what happened with the proposal. Also, for 3 years I had asked kris to take me to see Christmas lights. For the proposal he took myself and our families to the mission inn. Throughout the night he had our family members give me ring pops and ask me a question. My future sister in law asked me to be her sister and officially be “titi” to our niece. His parents asked me to be their daughter. My parents asked me to always be their little girl. However things didn’t quite go according the plan. We couldn’t get inside the mission inn. The line wrapped around multiple blocks. Then, we tried getting into the front but couldn’t because the gates were zip tied. I’ll never forget kris looking at me and saying that our plans never work out and he wants it to be that way for the rest of our lives. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. As I waited for him to slide the ring on my finger, he says, “Take the ring, you big dumb idiot!”
