Magical! This surprise proposal – engagement event was so EPIC! This was a destination proposal for my couple Phil and Charlene. Originally from San Francisco, the lovely couple flew down to San Diego for a mini vacation. Little did Charlene know, Phil and I were planning the most romantic proposal a girl could dream of. A stroll on the beach with the love of your life as he asks for your hand in marriage to be lifetime partners – I say that’s the best day a girl can dream of.

I love how my clients trust the process and follow my lead when it comes to preparing and executing the surprise plan. After all, this is a very special moment in your lives! It should be thoughtfully documented and the experience with the team you bring on board should make you feel comfortable and excited. I love working with people who value the gift of photography. These are once in a lifetime moments that will preserve your love story and carry on your legacy. So if you’re thinking about documenting momentous chapters like this in your life, hire a professional photographer who has experience and will take care of you from beginning to photo delivery day.
