Cambria, CA is full of rolling hills, country roads and a variety coastline. It’s perfect for a proposal destination. Plus it’s great for some stunning and unique engagement photography.
Engagement photo shoots are important because you can connect with your photographer prior to your wedding day. This makes your wedding day even more comfortable and suitable to your taste. The session gives you an hour together kissing, laughing and strolling hand in hand. Additionally it’s special to have a lot of photos NOT in your wedding dress. We’ll take photos in your favorite street clothes to have up around your home. Maybe even frame some for the tables at your wedding!
Surprise proposals are SO incredible, and my dear friend Leo was looking for a unique marriage proposal idea for his lovely Saroya! He wanted it to be like a fairy tale, and it was!!!
Hearst Castle is set in a gorgeous hilltop location. With sweeping panoramic views over the rolling Central Coast hills of California and Pacific Ocean. Buy tickets to any tour here! I captured Leo’s marriage proposal with a telephoto lens. Leo and Saroya have some beautiful, emotional photos to treasure for years to come. The tours are always fascinating with knowledgeable guides. As many tours as I’ve been on, it’s never the same ~ I learn something new every time! I love touring Hearst Castle!
Saroya was darling and I feel SO HAPPY for Leo, because whatever he said was perfect and Saroya had a beautiful and emotional response! It’s such a thrill to capture such loving moments in gorgeous settings.
Hiring a photographer to capture your surprise proposal (if you ask me) is THE BEST decision you can make!!! A few weeks after each one, most couples email me saying how much they cherish their photos and how amazing it is to re-live that moment and see the joy between them.
It’s so fun for me to connect with the person planning it, and to help map out an exact location with great views that’s private and uniquely special to them. Then pretending I’m a tourist just taking photos of the ocean or wildlife, while they stroll along, waiting for the big moment, is really exhilarating. I LOVE being a surprise proposal photographer! Capturing authentic reactions and beautiful engagement photos which exude such joy is the BEST!!!!
