Engagement Photos with a Blue Piano and Holi Powder: Lolo + Brandon

blue piano enagement

Lolo + Brandon’s engagement session took place over tons of miles in California. From Orange County to Forest Falls to the Salton Sea! We think you’ll love these fun engagement photos with a blue piano and a fun holi powder fight to end the day! Thanks so much to Priscila Valentina Photography for the gorgeous photos!

And I just love their sweet proposal story as told by Lolo! “It was almost 3 years ago that Brandon and I started dating. Last June we were engaged at my parent’s house. Brandon had this really awesome night planned for us with dinner and a ride in the Big Orange Balloon at the Great Park in Irvine. He told me to meet him at my house after I got off work and that he had planned a date night for us. His original plan was to propose while we were up in the balloon, but then he thought he might drop the ring, so his next thought was at dinner. As he was planning that out and pacing around my house like a mad man…I pulled into the driveway, lucky him I had gotten off work early that day! Right when he saw me walking up the steps, all his planning flew right out the window! So as I walked into the house there was Brandon standing there completely pale and shaking; he handed me 6 dozen red roses and said very nervously “Here, I got you roses”. He doesn’t remember much after that, but he said a lot of nice things, got down on one knee, I said yes and the rest is history!”

How did they manage to visit so many locations in one day? A bit more about their crazy + fun engagement photos…

The day of our engagement photo session was so hectic, so crazy and so very perfect! It felt like we drove a million miles that day. We went from Orange County to Forest Falls to the Salton Sea. I think we all originally felt super prepared for that day, but very early on we all realized we were totally wrong! None of us factored in the 35 mph speed limit on the mountain, how heavy that piano would be, how far away the Salton Sea was, and how early the sun goes down in February! By the time we got to the Salton Sea we had only an hour of sunlight, and that place is scary once the sun goes down! We finished right as the sun was setting, but then there was the piano…the 700 pound piano! It took a good 20 minutes to move that thing 5 feet through the sand, and then up onto the ramp and into the trailer. The night ended with a well-deserved burrito dinner for all of us in Redlands. It was such a chaotic and fun day but Brandon and I are so thankful for it, and we are completely in love with our photos!

Big thanks again to Priscila Valentina Photography and congrats to Lolo + Brandon!
