It’s my favorite thing ever when a guy has the foresight to hire a professional photographer for his proposal. Jimmy told Haley they were going for a nice dinner in La Jolla. On they way they made a quick stop to the exact spot that Jimmy asked her to be his girlfriend. They waited for the sunset and when Haley was least expecting it, he got down on one knee to ask her the question. She was completely surprised. Even more so when they went to dinner after and her friends and family were waiting at Georges on the Cove the celebrate! Congrats to the happy couple!
I’ve known Julie through my industry for years! I had always heard about the elusive Matt from Long Beach but wasn’t sure what to expect. Turns out he is super rad and make Julie laugh louder than I have ever heard her laugh. Which warms my heart of course. I’m excited for these two to start the next chapter in their relationship! We decided to shoot in Long Beach, starting in the exact spot they met – The Yard House! We ended up sipping beers at Ballast Point and being treated to the most beautiful sunset I’ve seen in awhile!
This was a special one for me – Jon and I have been colleagues and friends for more years than I can count! He booked me months in advance to be sure I could photograph his proposal to Shayna! I had never met Shayna before, so it made it that much easier to stalk them. Luckily she didn’t notice the strange woman with a camera standing behind them! Jon told Shayna that they were attending a friends vow renewal (hence the gift bag in his hand – cleverly hiding her ring) so there weren’t any questions about walking on the beach!
After what seemed like an eternity, Jon got down on one knee and proposed to the love of his life! I won’t lie, tears were flowing from the photographer. 😛
