Mexican War Streets Engagement Photography: Emily and P.J. in Love

Favorite Memory About Your Engagement:

While our engagement moment was very special with just us two, my favorite part was surprising both of our families. We were on vacation with PJ’s family and celebrated by the pool with many beverages. The next day, we flew home to my family for a fake anniversary party which ended up being our surprise engagement reveal. I will absolutely never forget the reaction, screams and facial expressions of everybody.

Why Did You Choose Your Engagement Location? What Makes It Special to You?
It was mostly timing, but it worked out well that we would be at the beach. I wanted to make sure the moment was ours, with nobody else around, so I took Emily on a kayak ride to a secluded beach. In addition, I wanted to make sure we would be able to surprise both of our families with the news shortly thereafter. Surprising my family right after, then flying back to Pittsburgh the following day to surprise her family was definitely an awesome couple of days.
