Faith & Jared’s Fun Flight-themed Engagement


Faith and Jared had an adorable engagement session that was themed around the idea of “flight” because… oh, you will find out in a while! (Here’s a clue: it has something to do with how Jared proposed to Faith!).  Some cute DIY props — a kite, kissing lovebirds, paper planes and more — also made their way into this fun shoot.

These two are so in love and it clearly shows in every single photo! This delightful feature was made possible through the talents of the fab Studio Sequoia‘s Kelley and Kim (who you might remember also photographed Julie & Johnny’s Rockin’ Rainbow Wedding). Here’s what the ladies had to say about the couple and their shoot:

Faith and Jared are all about flight, their hearts truly soar… Jared even proposed to Faith in an airplane! When I talked to them about the elements they wanted included into their engagement session, the element of flight was the single thing that stood out the most. Faith and Jared are getting married June 9th at Calumet Park in La Jolla and I could not be more excited to photograph such gorgeous folks who are so in love!

The pretty bride-to-be is here to tell us more about how she and Jared met and fell in love:

Jared and I met through a mutual friend at a local Triple A baseball game. We sat next to each other and just joked the entire time. We both were instantly intrigued by one another and had to know more. After a few times hanging out we stepped back from having an intimate relationship and focused on our friendship. We became great friends and that’s where our relationship really started to grow. In the fall of last year we decided to be together, but he had to leave for two months for the Air Force and that’s when I tell people we fell in love.

Faith is back to share how Jared proposed… which, as it turns out, is the reason they had a flight themed shoot!

Jared has his private pilots license and we enjoy taking day trips together to fun places. He really wanted to go to Big Bear so he asked me to go up with him and we would have breakfast. We went up early March 14th and had a great time. I didn’t have a clue what was about to happen. At about 11 we decided to head back to Edwards Air Force base where he is stationed and I have a government job. When we were about 500 ft above Big Bear Lake he asked me to get a box for him that was next to me seat it was urgent. I reached down and saw the ring box. He gave me the most beautiful proposal where he told me he loved me. We had never said that to each other before but we knew we did. We always just say “Love Love”. I was in so much shock I didn’t open the box for almost 15 minutes before he told me to! I couldn’t be happier and that’s why we chose the flight themed engagement because flying has been a huge part of our relationship and my trust I have in him. He’s also served almost ten years in the air force.

Some more flighty fun!

After all the flight-themed fun, the adorable twosome took to the beachfront and waded around in the water.
