Jim was my next door neighbor in my freshman dorm, and he also played clarinet in the Stanford Symphony Orchestra with Evan. We met Allison after we moved to Pasadena, and she too is a Stanford alum. They are such a sweet couple, so happy together. They have diverse career interests, with Allison pursuing a Ph.D. in comparative literature and Jim pursuing one in chemical engineering, but they’re extremely well-matched.
Their proposal story is equally sweet. Jim surprised Allison over winter break by greeting her when she got off the plane in her hometown of Boise, Idaho, and taking her in a limo to a park in downtown Boise. Her beautiful ring is made of diamonds from his grandmother’s ring. So romantic!
We had tons of fun touring Griffith Park in Los Angeles for this engagement session, and the hours just flew by.
We asked Jim and Allison to bring a prop for the session, and they found the perfect one. Jim’s saxophone looks awesome! It’s easy to hear jazz when you look at these photos.
Favorite! I loved the light in this part of the park. Allison, you are gorgeous!
Thanks so much, guys, for such a fun session! We had a blast with you two!
