ENGAGEMENT, PHOTOGRAPHY

Ngan & Donald : Engaged | The Embarcardero | San Francisco

06.01.2009

She noticed him first. Ngan had a crush on him. But he was just a friend. At least that’s what she thought. They were running in intersecting circles of friends and would see each other frequently. They would hang out in groups¬† and she’d look for a glimmer of a sign. Maybe they could be something more?

Eventually Donald noticed Ngan, too. He thought she was cute. She thought he was cute. With each brush of their hands, they wondered if it meant something, but never asked each other. Finally, Donald wrote Ngan a letter. He expressed everything that wasn’t coming to him verbally. And, they’ve been together ever since. After seven years of dating, Donald popped the question to Ngan over a beautiful surprise dinner at French Laundry. Ngan told me she was totally surprised. My favorite kind of proposal!

Ngan and Donald are also the AWESOME couple who brought me cupcakes to their engagement shoot. They were so much fun to hang out with! Thanks you two!

We started at the far end of the Embarcardero
