Chico California Engagement Photographer - Nate&Katie :D

Engagement season is so special for us! In the past couple months, we have had several close friends get engaged and it has been such a joy to be "in" on the surprise. Nate popped the question to Katie under the stars with about 500 candles and twinkle lights and lanterns that lit up the side of a canyon overlooking Chico! Stephen and I were hidden in the bushes and were able to snap a few photos of these two as the surprise unveiled. It was such a magical moment (which you can see on our Facebook page)!

We first met these two when Stephen moved back to Chico just before they started dating. We have loved watching these two grow and finally come to a place of stepping into this new adventure of engagement and marriage.

I (Chelsey) have had many long and deep conversations with Katie. She has always created a safe place for me to process and wrestle with any fun or difficult situation I am in. She always gives me an honest answer and is never quick to judge.  I cherish the time spent together, Whether it is out to coffee or a quick lunch break, this girl is a gem and her friendship means so much to me!  

Nate has an amazing heart and we both have been amazed at the way Nate has pursued Katie. He truly cares more about others than himself and is so humble. Nate has a way of bringing people together and creating community wherever he goes. He is welcoming and so inviting and we are so happy to know him!

We LOVE these two and are so excited for their future together!

Cheers to amazing friends and double dates for daysss!
