POINT DUME SURPRISE PROPOSAL // MALIBU WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

POINT DUME SURPRISE PROPOSAL // MALIBU WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

I arrived an hour early to make sure I had the entire area covered. Heart pounding, I saw them pull up in their car. As they made their way to the hill, I started the treck up and they followed. Liam knew who I was and that I’d be wearing a yellow backpack, so as they followed me, Addie had no idea I was actually there for her proposal! As we made our way to the top of Point Dume, I let them pass me to get to the perfect spot for Liam to drop to one knee. MY WORD, the anticipation was killing me!! It takes one split second to capture this moment, and I didn’t want to miss it.

TOP 5 ENGAGEMENT PHOTO LOCATIONS IN SOCAL // ORANGE COUNTY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

A few things may come to mind when initially thinking of locations to do your engagement shoot. Maybe your first date spot, favorite place to grab a drink together or something as easy and simple as the beach! Who doesn’t love the beach? Or maybe you’re doing a destination engagement session, or dreaming one up! Where to begin? How long does it take to travel between locations?

All I have to say is that when you get a message on instagram from a pro baseball player (guys I know about zero when it comes to sports) telling you how head over heals he is for his girl Kami, you've got to respond right away. :) Kami and Trevor, I'm so excited to share your story with everyone, it's uniquely beautiful and written by God. Such a good story!! Also, #goroyals 🤩

KATIE x VINNIE | BEAR LAKE ENGAGEMENT SESSION in ESTES PARK, COLORADO

Don't be fooled y'all! This hike gave me some real side cramps. Katie and Vinnie take their hiking seriously, and apparently I don't. HA! 

We had a great time hiking around Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park! We had fun driving the windy roads together in between locations in the park. These guys made me laugh a lot and I can't say enough good things about them!

MARY x KEVIN | DENVER, COLORADO

Mary and Kevin lost a family member this fall. It hurts to even type it out. Mary's sister in-law, Abby, had passed away in an accident. She was young--a mother of two, and a wife to an incredible man. Mary is wearing her sister Abby's red flannel shirt. 

Mary and Kevin are kind, compassionate and beautiful people. See their love. Witness with me, the beautiful landscape God had created.
