Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk & Walton Lighthouse Engagement Session | Jamie & Arnold

January 04, 2016

Ahhhh, the #AJBensonLoveStory.  When we first met with Jamie & Arnold, they definitely had that look - you know, where you're glowing from being in love.  These two have known each other for over 10 years before they were ever an official couple.  In fact, they go way back to the point where they have been on double-dates with other people!

It's always about timing, isn't it?

A few years back, they went on a snowboarding trip with her brother and sister-in-law, and it happened to be the first time they hung out as single people.  After this trip, Arnold sent the infamous text message that read:

"It's been awhile, but you're actually a cool bitch"

The rest is history.

Fast-forward to July of last year, and they had planned their annual trip to Pismo Beach for Arnold's birthday with friends and family.  However, this wasn't just any annual birthday trip, as Arnold had planned to propose to Jamie in front of their loved ones!  It was around lunch time, and Jamie was "hangry," but Arnold insisted on going to the beach, so she went along with it.  Off to the beach they went, and when the time was right, Arnold proposed to her.  

Jamie, being such the planner, is not one for surprises.  So yes, she cried her happy tears, and then she got mad, and finally was all smiles.  The love of her life, the godfather to her kids, and the one that her girlfriends would tease her about, will now be her soon-to-be husband.

What a love story. :)

Enjoy! - J & M
