Real Couple // Fun and Flirty Amusement Park Engagement Session in San Diego: Angela + Jamie

Jamie is good at everything he does, even if he just learned it. He is the calm, cool, collected one. He's friendly and very family oriented. He is a regular at the gym, lover of sushi & In 'n' Out, gamer, and the best doggy daddy!

Angela is a tiny cuddle bear with a very loving and kind-hearted personality. She likes to do calligraphy, read books, watch movies, travel, and hike. Her favorite movies are Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory and the Harry Potter movie series.

Jamie's cousin, Glenn, told me to come to his housewarming. I really didn't want to go because I was already in my pajamas and I knew Glenn didn't have a new place. Our friend Jesus ended up picking me up so I had no other choice. It turned out to be Jamie's housewarming—I met Jamie and thought he was cute and shy. Later after I left, Jamie asked Glenn about me and the rest is history.

I (Jamie) had asked her parents for their blessing a few months back. It was her birthday weekend and she always talked about going to Catalina Island so I wanted to surprise her with a day trip.

I (Angela) didn't know what ring I wanted, just something nice. I knew Jamie would know what to get me and he did (except the ring was 2 sizes too big)!
