I absolutely love photographing surprise proposals! It’s such a special time, especially when the family is there to celebrate. Sam wanted to propose on Blacks Beach, in San Diego. Blacks Beach is a secluded section of beach beneath the bluffs of Torrey Pines on the Pacific Ocean. There are gorgeous views, and incredible surf – you’ll often see someone surfing no matter the time of year! While it can be a little difficult to get to, since you have to go down some steep cliffs, it is worth it!
Sam made sure to bring their pup along, so she could be part of the photos. After Sam popped the question (and Katy said yes!) their family came out of hiding to celebrate. Katy was so surprised to see them! They even had champagne to celebrate. After some family pictures, we got a few more portraits, so they could enjoy the moment, and remember it forever.
If you are a groom looking to propose, I highly recommend you hire a proposal photographer! This is such an important moment in your relationship and one you want to document. Plus, it gives you lots of pictures to share with family and friends!
From your social media posts, to your engagement announcement, to even engagement party invitations, you can use these proposal images! You will be so glad that you have professional photographs to use. It will also make everyone feel like they were there, even if they couldn’t attend. Congratulations Katy and Sam, and thank you for letting photograph your sweet proposal!
