The day none of their friends ever saw coming...
...after 11 years Zach FINALLY proposed.
Zach popped the question on October 30th, 2019 in Panama City Beach, Florida at his 1-C Dive graduation. He got down on one knee, ON STAGE, immediately after Katelynn pinned him. Katelynn was utterly surprised and filled with joy. The two then celebrated their recent engagement by going to Disney World.
Zach and Katelynn met at Norview High School in 2006 and started dating in 2009. 3 years ago they moved across country to San Diego, California. When Katelynn asked me to fly out and capture their engagement photos, I did not hesitate. Within 2.5 weeks after their engagement I was on a plane.
The location they choose was Torrey Pines in San Diego, which is currently my favorite place on the West coast. The cliffs that run alongside the long beaches blow Virginia Beach's beach out of the water. Being able to hike to the top of the cliff and look down and across at the water from 407 feet above is a view I can never forget.
