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.

Emily and Erik recently moved from San Francisco to Austin, and last week they came back to the city where they first met for a Sutro Baths engagement photo shoot. E&E got engaged last April, so they planned this trip for the anniversary of their engagement, and it worked out oh-so-perfectly. I’m in love with everything about this couple, and am so excited to share a few of their photos!
Heather & Adam initially planned on having their engagement shoot at the beach, so we met up at the top of the trail that leads down to Marshall’s Beach, which is a beautiful, relatively secluded spot and has become one of our most popular spots for engagement photos. But we had such a good time taking lots of photos on the hike towards the beach that we didn’t even end up going down to the water! [ read more … ]
