Griffith Park Observatory Engagement | Part I
Katie + Joel

Katie is a sweetheart and a stunning Southern Belle.

Joel is a true gentleman, with a sense of humor to boot.

Katie + Joel first met about four years ago, when Katie moved from Birmingham, Alabama to Los Angeles.

That was when Katie began volunteering at the non-profit organization where Joel + Katie continue to work, which faithfully responds to the needs of the inner-city.

“I asked her out about four years after I should have!” Joel reflected, “We had known each other at work and were friends,”

So how did they make the transition from friendship to romance?

“We actually started dating after we tweeted each other!” Katie said, “We had spent the day together with friends, and I thanked him over Twitter, and then he tweeted me back…and things developed from there!”

So naturally, we went straight home and searched Katie + Joel’s tweets in search of that first fateful Twitter exchange. We’re not positive (Katie + Joel, please enlighten us), but we think that we found the tweet that started it all:

Katie + Joel’s relationship blossomed, and they soon realized that they were made for one another.

With much planning and anticipation, Joel surprised Katie with a romantic picnic proposal on the beach.

To which Katie said, “Yes!”

And of course, Katie + Joel announced the news on Twitter:

A modern day fairytale…

Katie + Joel, we can’t wait to photograph your wedding in March! You are both beautiful people, inside and out.

We love you guys!
