Secret Sunset Proposal in Newport Beach

December 12, 2017


Caleb reached out to me the week before Thanksgiving, as he was interested in having his proposal to Brianne documented. After a referral from a previous proposal client (shout out to you Phillip!), he booked me to photograph this momentous occasion for them all, including their pups!

With my mom in town, she served as the perfect decoy. We parked ourselves on the beach and I sent my location to Caleb. He in turn sent a picture of himself and his lady so I would know who to look for!!

I swear, I get just as nervous for these shoots as the guys I’ve been hired by!!! It’s such a rush!!! And we were running a bit behind on schedule and running out of light so I love that Caleb wasting no time when he got in front of me… and just dropped to the knee!!! The light was as golden as I had seen in sometime and I’m excited to share a glimpse into that special moment with you all!!!

Have an interesting proposal story?? Drop it in the comments below!!
