I thrive on real moments, candid moments, life altering moments. This marriage proposal was no exception. My heart was beating loud and fast, as I hid out behind boulders, high on a cliff, above the Pacific Ocean, to discreetly capture Jake’s proposal to Erica. From a sweet song, to a heartfelt proposal, embrace, laughter, and frolicking in the cool waves…This candid shoot was one of my all time favorites. Here is the beautiful story of Jake and Erica’s engagement!
This session was full of love and nostalgia as it took me back to just blocks away from where I spent my college days in South Mission Beach, San Diego. I met up with Rylee and Billy at their darling, little apartment, overlooking Mission Bay. I immediately fell in love with their sweet dog, Bailey, and their retro-style yellow kitchen. After a quick Moscow Mule, I followed these two as the frolicked on beach cruisers and cuddled in sailboats beneath the warm Winter sunlight. Just before sunset, we ventured to the Catamaran Hotel, where these two wrapped up in a blanket, and wandered through the Hotel’s lush, tropical gardens. Billy and Rylee are just breathtakingly beautiful, and the chemistry between them is something like a dream. Every so often I come across a couple that just leaves me in awe, and Billy and Rylee are one of them.
