Celebrating an Engagment at Big Sur, California

Lesbian Engagement Photoshoot at Big Sur California

Among the rugged coastline of Big Sur, Caitlin & Elenita celebrated their engagement during a romantic photoshoot. 

Caitlin and Elenita met online in the early months of the pandemic in 2020. Respecting health precautions, they chose to date via Zoom for almost two months โ€” taking turns planning digital activities, like Bob Ross painting nights and online museum tours. By the time they met in person, they were already in love.

They spent their first “IRL” dates exploring the California coast, reveling in childhood memories that they both had in common. Despite having spent their 20’s on opposite sides of the country – Elenita in New York and Caitlin in Los Angeles – they both grew up a town away from each other, so the California coast holds a special place in their hearts.

They took turns proposing to one another.

First, Caitlin proposed while they were living in New York, and then Elenita popped the question within days of moving back to California while on a trip to Big Sur.

The proposal weekend was full of surprises, love, magic, and the comfort of their favorite place.
