Leanne wasn’t sure about the whole online dating thing, but Fred seemed kind of cool. After she decided he seems like a normal person she let him take her on a date to Cheesecake Factory. There she was glad she gave online dating a chance because, on that date, they immediately connected. They bonded over something really meaningful, their art. Though their craft differed, Leanne’s graphic designer and Fred’s airbrushing and being raised by a jeweler, they had the same heart.

Early on knew Fred was the guy for her. There’s even a specific moment when Leanne realized this guy was one she didn’t want to let go. She was laying in a hospital bed with a broken ankle. It was the middle of the night and Fred was not about to leave her side. She looked at him and knew. This loyal caring guy was the one she wanted to spend the rest of her life with.

And on her birthday, in front of the Disneyland castle, Fred knelt down to ask her a question she had already known the answer to since that night in the hospital.

Their Los Rios District and San Clemente Pier Engagement Session was such a dream and the most fun! It is easy to see how in love these two are by how relaxed they are with one another. And how excited they are to get married from all of the spontaneous twirls. I cannot wait for their wedding at the Ritz Carlton this July! Remember how I said Fred was raised by a Jeweler? Well, their wedding is entirely inspired by precious stones! These two even went to the very same rock/jewel show in Vegas to pick out the stones for their wedding that Fred grew up going to as a kid with his dad! How sweet is that?! When they told me, it made my heart melt.

Leanne + Fred, thank you so much for allowing me to tell your story! You two are truly beautiful and I can’t wait for the wedding day!
