Engagement, Proposal

Have Your Proposal Photographed! | San Francisco Proposal Photography

Have. Your. Proposal. Photographed. No, really… Do it. Silas had our proposal photographed by our good friend Brian, and I am so, so glad he did! The proposal goes by so fast, and having photos of such an incredible moment is something I will always cherish. If you are interested in having your proposal photographed, we will want to scout the location together beforehand so we can figure out exactly where I will be hiding, where the two of you should stand to make sure that you are facing the right direction, and see if there aren’t any other major distractions. I want you to choose a location that is special to the two of you, and we can make anything work! Most people come to me with a vision already in mind, but I am happy to help and offer suggestions if needed!

Here are a few of the proposals I’ve photographed recently, as well as our own proposal! I especially love the “we pulled it off!” eye contact shots in these sets!

RJ proposed to Jen on their ranch in Moorpark, CA in the early morning hours while taking one of their horses for a walk before heading out to a family brunch. Although Jen didn’t see me, the horse was WELL aware of me hiding in the bushes, and wasn’t a fan! haha

Ogi proposed to Anne in the late evening after dinner at the top of Vallejo Street in San Francisco near an awesome view of the bay bridge. I was hiding in the bushes in the darkness like a total creeper and had to explain to a few terrified residents what I was doing! hahaha

Pascal proposed to Ashley at the top of Bernal Heights Park overlooking downtown San Francisco while taking their dogs on their morning walk. Pascal and Ashley planned a “housewarming party” for that day, which Ashley didn’t know was actually their engagement party! I was able to get some of these photos to them within the next hour to display on their TV at the party that day, too.

And OUR proposal, planned by my wonderful husband, shot by Brian Kent of ABM Wedding Photography at Kate Sessions Park in San Diego! Silas wrote me the sweetest song, and I totally missed the part in the song when he proposed! hahaha He played it again for me after the “real” proposal.

    Aww I love this!!

    I cannot stress enough how special all of these pictures are to me (as one of the lucky few who had Nicole photograph our engagement)!! The moment goes by sooooo fast, and it is such a great gift to be able to go back and relive the moment. And the part about her editing them within an hour so we could have them for our “housewarming party”….priceless! Our entire family got to relive the moment with us…special for everyone involved.

    Thank you Thank you Thank you!!
