Are you a fan of ABC’s The Bachelor/Bachelorette? If so, you’ve seen your fair share of stunning and elaborate proposals. When I met Devin and Karmen at Mountainside Lavender in Hillsboro, Oregon, I hadn’t yet heard how they got engaged.  I just knew they were two incredibly down-to-earth and deeply in love humans. Whether you’re a part of Bachelor Nation or not, you are NOT going to want to miss this engagement story...

You know that feeling when you get invited to a REALLY awesome party, but you have to decline because you're already committed to another event? That was the feeling I had when John and Angie asked me to photograph their wedding in Hawaii. Except the other event that I'd committed to was having a BABY, right about the exact time that they'd be saying 'I do' on the beautiful island of Maui. I was so incredibly disappointed to have to miss their big day, but my darling boy was obviously more than worth it. All that said, I was beyond excited when John and Angie asked if instead, I'd photograph their reception here in Washington.

These sweethearts have built a beautifully strong relationship on a foundation of friendship.  They met in the 5th grade and were friends throughout elementary, middle, and high school. After high school, their paths led them in different directions for a while, but they reconnected and went on their first date in November 2013.
