Unique Marriage Proposal Idea ~ at Hearst Castle!

Unique Marriage Proposal Idea - at Hearst Castle

Surprise proposals are SO incredible, and 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, and I purchase one as well on your same tour!  I capture your tour for you, as well as secretly follow you to your marriage proposal with a telephoto lens, to a spot somewhere in the gardens or terrace overlooking the views.  It never has to be pre-decided you can go with your own flow and enjoy the walk around until you find the perfect spot.

Saroya was darling and I feel SO HAPPY for Leo, because whatever he said was perfect and Saroya had a beautiful and emotional response!

Surprise Proposal in Cambria, Ca { Engagement Destination }

Surprise Proposal overlooking Moonstone Beach in Cambria

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!!!!

This blog post features another beautiful example of true love between Pooja + Devesh!

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!
