Heather knew that she had found a great guy in Rameen on their second date, after enjoying dinner in Santa Barbara. "Rameen lagged behind as we started walking, and I heard him say, 'Hey, you hungry?' Thinking that he was talking to me, I turned around to reply, but instead saw him offering our leftovers to a homeless man nearby on a bench. It was a small gesture- lots of people might not have even noticed- but it was one that has stuck out in my mind for years. It was what first clued me in to what a genuine, generous, and kind person Rameen was."
Fast forward to the proposal, Rameen asked Heather to marry him while on a casual hike to a nearby butterfly grove. "We made it to the grove, and there were butterflies all around," described Rameen. "We sat and chatted for a bit while I waited for a good time (and to build up my courage). It started to drizzle lightly, and people cleared out. I saw my moment, perfect and intimate. I looked at her, got down on one knee and pulled out the ring. I honestly can't remember what I said, but next I knew she was nodding her head and saying, 'Yes!' Her eyes welled up, I smiled, we kissed, and she became my fiancee."
Heather and Rameen's engagement shoot was skillfully captured by Sun & Sparrow Photographers in a beautiful field in Southern California. I love the entire feel of the shoot - from the couple, to their wardrobe, the sunlight and the setting.
