Courtney + Todd Upper Bidwell Park

Courtney and Todd are getting married! They celebrated their love with an engagement session in Upper Bidwell Park in Chico, CA.  The laughter they shared, showed how close their relationship has become.  You can view more engagement sessions here.


How They Met

Courtney’s work was putting on a celebratory last-day-on-the-job party for her and Todd was at the same location attending a different party. Their two parties collided and Courtney and Todd started out by disagreeing about a tech issue. From then they continued to chat,


The Proposal

Courtney and Todd had a trip to New Zealand planned. Todd had a ring purchased for twelve months already.  He was planning out for the right moment in New Zealand.  Todd is a big Lord of the Rings fan and when they stopped at the Hobbit Hole, he asked the tour guide to hang back with them.  At the Hobbit Hole, Todd immediately dropped down to one knee and asked Courtney to marry him.  She said yes!


Courtney and Todd, thank you for trusting me with your engagement session. The easy and fun laughter between the two of you showed me how close you have become over the years. I am looking forward to your wedding day this year!  I am excited for you to see some of my many favorites from your engagement session in upper Bidwell Park.
