Romantic Wedding Proposal Ideas
March 20th marks the National Proposal Day! To celebrate I thought this blog post would be appropriate. Below are some of the awesome surprise proposals I've been lucky to photography in 2014. Enjoy!
Jessie and Doan's sweet engagement was on the beach at Sutro Baths. They had dined at a Chinese restaurant the evening before where Jessie had a custom cookie made with a note reading "Doan, will you marry me?" inside. He told her to save her cookie until their walk on the beach. This lovely couple were vacationing in San Francisco from Scottsdale, Arizona when Jessie surprised Doan with this jaw dropping heart shaped diamond. Needless to say Doan was ecstatic with happiness and had no idea I was photographing the whole time.
Not only did Sheldon surprise Brittany with a romantic proposal on a sunset sail around the Bay of San Francisco and hiring me to document the proposal, he flew her whole family from Texas to witness and celebrate their engagement. The sail was organized through the San Francisco Sailing company, they have a great 2 hour sunset sail that leaves from Pier 39, sailing over to Alcatraz, Angel Island, Golden Gate Bridge, and then right down the city front.
Last proposal is during golden hour on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Coast. Mike and Janelle are from Los Angeles and were on vacation for Thanksgiving celebration. Mike had been holding on to the stunning ring and waiting for the right moment to propose. During the trip he reached out to me to plan his perfect proposal. Janelle was ecstatic and caught off-guard when I introduced myself to her after Mike's proposal. She was surprised that I had photographed the whole proposal and so excited to see the photographs and show her friends and family back home.
