|
July 17, 2019

A special San Francisco rooftop proposal for an extra-special couple! Nils reserved the garden area of the Fairmont Hotel to share a private moment together with Diane, and he had it set up perfectly: a table in front of the fountain prepared with champagne, some light bites, and a beautiful vase of flowers, all in a peaceful setting with just the calming sound of the fountain behind them.

Amanda and Brandon met up with us for their engagement photo shoot in San Francisco by the ocean. Her long blue dress worked perfectly in the ocean breeze and the colorful sunset sky, but of course more important is Amanda & Brandon’s love for each other.

Frank & Rona’s Andy Goldworthy’s Wood Line Surprise Proposal

|
June 28, 2019

When Frank and I first chatted about his proposal plans, he mentioned wanting to do it somewhere quiet, preferably somewhere wooded since he knew his girlfriend of seven years, Rona, would appreciate it. After thinking through some options, he decided Andy Goldworthy’s Wood Line would be perfect for his surprise proposal.

When the time came, the two of them walked past us, and Frank paused to start asking the big question. Now, I like to stay far away during proposals, so I only heard a little bit of what they said — but next thing I knew, Rona had turned and ran 15 feet away from Frank and asked while pointing into his pocket, “WHAT IS THAT??” [ read more … ]
