JJ & Stephanie’s Surprise Proposal at the Ritz

JJ and Stephanie’s surprise proposal at the Ritz was an absolutely delightful moment for me to capture. On a beautiful weekend evening, just before dinner, the couple took a stroll along the cliffs next to the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay, enjoying the calm spring ocean breeze on their way over to the beach. As they approached a scenic point with a panoramic view of the ocean down below and the hotel in the background, JJ stopped to say a few words and ask a very important question to Stephanie, who was (as you can see in the photos below) overjoyed for this moment. And afterwards, he had another surprise — he had secretly flown her parents into town for a dinner celebration together!

I’m delighted to have had the opportunity to capture this moment. Here are a few of my favorites!
