Chris and Connor’s Sunny Engagement Shoot at the Venice Canals

Just from a quick peek at their engagement pictures, these two were destined to find each other. Chris and Connor met online, and over the next four years, they discovered that theirs was a match more perfect than any online matching service could have predicted. “We complete each other,” the grooms-to-be say. “We balance each other’s flaws and encourage strengths. We just seem to be the missing part of each other’s personality.”

Four years later, Chris arranged for Connor’s mom to be in town during the holidays and proposed during a white elephant gift exchange with a stunning engagement ring, featuring three rows of chocolate diamonds sandwiched between two rows of white diamonds set in a white gold band. Because these two are jetting off to Hawaii to tie the knot next September, they headed to Venice Beach in California for a smile-filled e-sesh. We absolutely love these photos of Chris and Connor captured by Dakota Cheyenne Photography at the iconic Venice canals where the sun was shining brightly overhead, creating magical light for their love to shine.
