One of my favorite things to photograph is proposals! It’s such an emotional time and always such a big surprise. When Alex contacted me to document his proposal to Sabrina, he had the perfect spot in mind: The Bluffs in Pacific Palisades. Sitting high up on a bluff, this spot gives you endless beach and ocean views and perfect sunsets.
Alex told Sabrina they were celebrating their anniversary and wanted a quick stop to see the sunset before their dinner at Baltaire. Little did she know I was hiding close by with my camera! Sabrina was so surprised and so excited!
She spent the whole time smiling and checking out her new ring (which is gorgeous!). For all of my proposal shoots, I make sure we have time to get some newly engaged portraits of the two of you. This is such a sweet time that you will never forget!
Memories Overlooking The Bluffs
One of the reasons I love photographing proposals is that this is such a sentimental and important memory. It allows my couples to share beautiful photos with their family and friends to celebrate. A lot of my couples also use the pictures for their engagement announcement or Save The Date!
When planning a proposal, you can either have a complete setup, as Eric and Jenny did, or keep it simple and sweet and let the view be the focal point! Pick whatever feels the most “You” as a couple. Your partner will be happy no matter how you do it!
If you are proposing to your special someone, reach out! I would love to hear your story and help you find the perfect spot to pop the big question.
