Megan and Shawn's Proposal at Big Bear Mountain

How we met: Shawn and I met through mutual friends and from the very beginning we just clicked. After 2 years of knowing each other, we realized we had strong feelings for each other that we had never felt for anyone else. Just 2 weeks into dating, we both knew we were going to marry each other. Everyone says, “When you know, you know,” and boy is it true! He is the most kind hearted, funny and loving person I know. He makes sure to tell me that I’m beautiful and know how much he loves me every single day. We have fun no matter what we are doing, but we love going snowboarding the most together. So after dating for a year and seriously talking about marriage, I just couldn’t wait to spend the rest of my life with my best friend!

How he asked: Both of us absolutely love being in the mountains, whether it’s for snowboarding or for the view. As a last minute getaway, Shawn planned for us, his sister and her fiancé to go up to Big Bear over the weekend. I am a photographer so while we were up there, I planned to take his sister’s engagement photos. We went to Shawn and I’s favorite spot and after I had taken their photos, I decided I wanted a few photos of Shawn and I just for fun (they knew I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to take photos of us).

I set up my camera, ran over to Shawn and posed, had his sister take the photo and when I looked back at Shawn, he was down on one knee! I couldn’t believe it! I shed a few tears but mostly squealed in excitement! So excited in fact, that it took a full minute until he asked me, “Well, do you want to put on the ring?!” Of course I did!
