Yan & Min’s Surprise Proposal at the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton

5/20 is a special day for many Chinese couples (it sounds like “I love you” in Mandarin), and Yan made sure to lock down that date with us several months in advance to capture this special moment between him and his girlfriend Min.

When the time came, he and two of his friends concocted a story to get Min out to the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton for the surprise proposal, and they choreographed it perfectly. He led her to an overlook above the beach and coastline, and at just the right moment, his friends started playing music from a speaker that had been concealed in an inconspicuous shopping bag. We loved Min’s overjoyed reaction, and all the happy moments following the proposal. [ read more … ]

Frances and Chris’s Ocean Hillside Engagement Photos | Marin Wedding Photographer

Frances and Chris were such a sweet couple! They met in college and moved to San Francisco together a few years ago, and Chris proposed less than a month ago!

For the engagement session, we started off right where they got engaged, in the Marin Headlands overlooking Rodeo Beach and the Pacific Ocean. The endless weeks of winter rain this year meant that when it came time for us to shoot, there were rolling hills with endless fields of flowers waiting for us in every direction! [ read more … ]
