Engagement of Gregory and Anna

Magness Tree Farm | Sherwood, OR


This beautiful story is very personal to me. Gregory and I had been friends for years through ministry, music and photography. Anna was a long time friend and a staple in our church community. Somehow - for years - these two had never met. That was the story until I flew Gregory up from Southern California to shoot a wedding with me. On June 28th, 2014, their paths finally crossed at the wedding of Jacob and Beki Vigil. On a cool, summer's evening under the arches of hundred-year oaks at Magness Tree Farm, they both said "hello." They began dating just a few months later.

While dating, Anna made several travels for missions that took her to South Africa and Nepal. But that couldn't stop them from cultivating something truly unique - and completely out of their hands - for they were destined for one another as Gregory followed her around the world. Finally, upon Anna's return from Nepal, Gregory surprised her with the question they had always wanted to ask since the very day they met - and at the very place their story first started.
