Elise and Burt's December engagement session with Brian Leahy Photography was at the Hermosa Beach Pier. How cute is their proposal story?
Burt and I met during our junior year of college at the University of Denver. One of my sorority sisters happened to be friends with Burt and his roommates, so she insisted that a group of us attend a housewarming party they were throwing. After meeting that way a couple of times he asked me out on an official date!
I had absolutely no idea that Burt was going to propose, right up until he got down on one knee. It was a Saturday morning and we had decided to go out for some brunch. I came into the living room ready to go and Burt just sat there on the sofa, stalling – very unlike him! I sat down trying to figure out what was up and he pulled out a tiny box out from behind the sofa pillows.
When it came time to choose a location for our engagement photos, the Hermosa Beach Pier was at the top of our list. Burt and I lived just a few short blocks away for about 3 years. We spent a lot of time there so it had a great deal of sentimental value as well as offering a lot of really beautiful scenery. We could not have imagined our photos anywhere else! – Elise
