Dylan & Christina’s Surprise Engagement at Mussel Rock | Pacifica Photographer

Dylan surprised Christina with a stunning ring on his “business trip” last weekend! Earlier that day, Annie and I had been checking the hourly weather forecast every 15 minutes because there was an up-to-90% chance of showers at 5pm when Dylan was supposed to drop down on his knee. By the time we arrived at the cliffs at around 4, it was already pouring and the wind was crazy.

If there ever was a time for me to have been thankful for the awful Bay Area traffic, this was it. Our happy couple arrived just minutes after the sky opened up, allowing the sun to peek through a thick, textured cloud cover, casting beautiful beams of light on them, the cliffs, and the Pacific Ocean in the background.

This was actually our first time shooting a proposal in Pacifica, our new hometown. I’m so glad Dylan chose this truly beautiful city to propose to Christina and to forever be a part of their story — congrats to you two!
