Winston and I know each other from our days at UCLA. When he found out I was pursuing a life behind the lens, he inquired about helping him capture his surprise proposal to his girlfriend, Bethany. Y’all know how much I love a good love story so I was totally down to be a part of this milestone in their lives. Being the rico suave that he is, he worked with the catering manager at the Sunset Marquis and arranged for a secret “Groupon” that he’d use to convince the new soon-to-be wifey to go to dinner. When they arrived, the manager led them up a stairway to a private patio lit with lights and candles where Winston popped the question. I was hiding in the bushes the entire time shooting away.
Afterwards, we took off and shot around the beautiful grounds of the hotel as well as on the famed Sunset Strip. Bethany is as beautiful as she is… uh, tall… and she is reallllly tall (I swear that’s a compliment Bethany!). Winston is one lucky guy, meeting not only a beautiful girl from the Midwest but one who loves nuoc mam and is down to learn his native tongue. You gotta love that!
