Olivia and Collin met in elementary school, but their love story was still budding behind the scenes then. The pair ended up with their paths crossing in their senior year of college and before they knew it, Collin would be proposing to Olivia at her family portrait shoot in front of her loved ones. Props, Collin, for taking advantage of an opportunity where a photographer AND family are present to pop the question! We’re so lucky that Molly Margaret Photography snapped these photos for us!
How did you meet?
Collin and I met in elementary school, and grew up around each other with mutual friends. We dated for a year in high school, but just weren’t sure we were meant to be. We went our separate ways for college, and senior year of college we reconnected. Meeting as adults was like meeting a whole new person, one you instantly connect with and we both just knew this was it! The saying rang true that if you love someone, set them free. If they come back to you, they’re yours forever!
What is your proposal story?
Collin proposed on Mugu Beach in California near where I grew up. We were taking family portraits with my family, and we decided to get a few snapshots of Collin and I. Sneaky surprise- next thing I knew he was down on one knee with my dream ring and I was saying YES! surrounded by my family and caught on camera!
Tell us about the ring/band.
The engagement ring is an oval solitaire sitting on a hidden halo with a white gold band.
