If I had to choose between popping the question under sunny weather on a crowded beach vs foggy weather with no one around, I’d pick the latter every time. (Well, ideally just one time, but you get the idea…) Matt & Olivia were in town for the Fourth of July, which has historically been the busiest, most crowded day in years past, and forecasts predicted even more sightseers this year. But luckily, the skies were just barely foggy enough to keep people away but not so much as to hinder the beautiful view at this beachy spot, giving Matt the stage for a perfectly quiet Golden Gate Bridge surprise proposal.

This photo shoot has been a loooooong time in the making! We first met with Scarlet & Anthony at the end of 2019 — back in the Before Times when it was still normal to meet people face-to-face — and together we happily talked about their May 2020 wedding day. Well, we all know what 2020 brought us 🙁 So we rescheduled to September, because surely a pandemic couldn’t possibly last an entire summer… right? [ read more … ]
Brandon and Anna’s surprise proposal at Crane Cove Park was a unique one, to say the least. The spot he had chosen for this special moment is a quiet little cove right next to their apartment, and it’s one they had been to many, many times before, so she didn’t suspect a thing. When they arrived, it was like they had the entire space to themselves, and we got some lovely photos of the exciting moment as Brandon asked the question and Anna responded with “yes, of course!” [ read more … ]
Derek and Natalia were already set to get married — they’re having a small ceremony in a few weeks — but Derek made sure his bride would get the proposal she deserves. Originally he wanted this to be at the nearby Hawk Hill, but as I waited there for them, the clouds rolled in; due to its high elevation, Hawk Hill poked right up into the low-lying clouds that day, obscuring the view. So I quickly texted Derek to go to plan B, and I hurried down the hill before they arrived. When they reached the lookout point, Derek brought her over to the Golden Gate Bridge overlook to pop the question. Natalia was happy beyond words, and I’m very excited to share a few photos of this perfect Battery Spencer surprise proposal!
It took a village to pull this one off — Aaron had envisioned a grand proposal with an elaborate setup: a floral arch, lit sign, candles, flower petals, champagne, the works — and a group of over a dozen friends joined in to assemble everything at the end of Pier 7, with a perfect view of both the Bay Bridge and the San Francisco cityscape.
