Diana + Rod: Tilden Park Engagement

It didn’t help when their friends hinted on how cute of a couple they would make together. They grew uncomfortable around each other and tried to carry on casual conversations just like friends would. Yet it wasn’t easy to be neutral either. They went to the same college, same church, to the same bible study, and often were left alone at the campus evangelism table. Their class schedules matched too perfectly, and it wasn’t unusual for him to walk her to class. Soon they parked next to each other and took longer walks. And on one of those days when the pressure from friends got too high, he pulled her aside and declared that he likes her, like a lot. Diana started acting normal around him and Rod did not hide his affections any longer. They kept talking, taking more walks, and to their friends’ surprise started dating only six months later. And right there somewhere on the dusty paths of Sierra College they fell in love, hard.

Diana and Rod, I’m so thrilled for your engagement and soon approaching wedding! I’ve known both of you since your teens and it’s exciting to see you together. Thank you for the honor of documenting the start of your journey. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you as husband and wife. You two are so special to me, and I’m very grateful to have you in my life. Thank you for your sweet smiles and for your devotion to the Lord. Love you to pieces!!!! Yuliya.

Oh the lovely Diana!

Diana has been in front of my camera plenty of times, yet she looked specially gorgeous this time around!

Good looking together or what?
