We often get asked for advice on good locations for a picturesque surprise proposal, especially for clients coming from out of town. Luckily, Lydia didn’t ask for my help — because, even after all these years of photographing couples and proposals, I definitely wouldn’t have thought to suggest a basketball court surprise proposal. But I can’t imagine a single thing that could have made this a more perfect afternoon for the two of them! [ read more … ]
As Rohan was planning his proposal, he knew he wanted a place that was quiet and beautiful, and Martin’s Beach was at the top of his list. Clearly, he had done his homework — I didn’t even know about this place until he told me about it! This incredible beach actually has a pretty interesting history [ read more … ]

We love it when a plan all comes together for a wonderful result! Preet brought his girlfriend Prabhjit to the Palace of Fine Arts on a sunny October afternoon. Prior to his arrival, a group of his friends had gathered to help set up an cute “marry me” lighted sign and flower petals arranged in the shape of a heart. Thanks to all the help, by the time they arrived, the completed setup looked just perfect. Congrats to P&P and check out their beautiful Palace of Fine Arts sunset proposal in the photos below!
