Last weekend, I joined Jonathan & Leianne on the cliffs of Pacifica for their Devil’s Slide Bunker engagement photos. It’s a neat spot that you might have seen while driving down the Pacific Coast Highway down towards Half moon Bay, that weird-looking, colorful, weather-worn structure defiantly standing up on a rock jutting into the ocean. Turns out, this spot makes a great place for an engagement session! [ read more … ]
Roberto wanted to propose to his girlfriend Corrina near the sea with a view of the coastline… and I knew just the spot for him. A few days before the big day, he took some time to drive out to Mussel Rock Park to scope out the place, and decided that the high cliffs with the shoreline, Pacifica pier, and crashing waves in the background would indeed be the perfect spot for his Pacifica oceanside surprise proposal.

Brandon had planned to propose to his girlfriend Jacquie while on a roadtrip down the Pacific Coast Highway, which is perhaps the most scenic route in all of America, and he picked out Bixby Bridge as the place to do it. [ read more … ]
Where should I start? Emily and Max are two lovebirds who are just sooooo in love with each other, and I think they must’ve taken up modeling as their secret second career, because they were so easy and comfortable in front of my cameras. Emily really loves the beach vibe, so for their engagement session we went to the Half Moon Bay Coastal Trail. The trail itself is great, and it also leads to a secluded beach right at the bottom of the Ritz Carlton, a perfect spot for a Half Moon Bay sunset engagement shoot. [ read more … ]
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. He put a lot of thought into choosing the perfect spot, especially since the weather wasn’t looking the best that weekend.
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 … ]
