Preston + Whitney | Joshua Tree, California | Surprise Proposal and Engagement

Updated: Feb 17




I met Whitney two years ago at a workshop we both attended & we hit it off instantly! She just radiates JOY & Kindness! We worked on projects together over the years and after one of those projects, I mentioned that I wanted to explore more this summer and had plans to do a session in Joshua Tree. She immediately jumped on board & volunteered her and her bf. It was set! Little did I know, her sweet sweet boyfriend Preston was planning to propose & had been waiting for the perfect opportunity. This was it. He reached out to me secretly after Whitney told him about the session she volunteered them for. He wanted to surprise her. Of course I agreed!! Then, 4 weeks and a 4 hour drive later, we met in Joshua Tree, CA. and well, I'll let the images speak for themselves :-)









After Preston proposed I think him (and I) were able to breath a little easier so, we celebrated, hugged, and decided we still had lots of Joshua Tree left to explore so we continued with the session. Whitney (in true whit fashion) was all smiles with an occasional squeal of excitement here and there.
















I am SO happy for you guys!! Congratulations Preston & Whitney!
