Valerie’s hired me as her Proposal Photographer to capture her secret marriage proposal to her girlfriend Tyler as they vacationed in California from New York.  It was entirely wonderful!!! She gave Tyler a hand written love letter and at the end it said “Now turn around” where Valerie held her ring!!!!  These two brides are beautiful together, inside and out, and I am so thankful to be a part of such amazing displays of true love!

{ Michael + Katie } Surprise Marriage Proposal at Hearst Castle

Surprise Proposal at Hearst Castle by Debbie Markham

Being a proposal photographer is the best!  I got to follow a couple in secret, photographing them walking around, then capturing his proposal to her!  Michael and Katie (and I) took the Grand Rooms Tour and afterwards I photographed him finding the perfect spot to propose!  THAT WAS SO FUN and rewarding to pull it off – she had no idea!!!

Brittany + Daniel Engagement Photography at Hearst State Beach { Surprise Proposal }

Hiring a photographer to capture a surprise proposal is a great idea!!! Brittany just thought she was walking her dog with her boyfriend, meeting her parents in an hour for appetizers, and Daniel had it all set up! It’s so amazing to go back and view these treasured photos as one of the happiest days, and relive the feelings of having butterflies! I am so lucky to witness the pure joy from surprise marriage proposals!
