        Malibu is one of my favorite places in Southern California, it’s a secret everyone knows about. So when Tanner asked me to photograph and help him plan his Point Dume Surprise Proposal, I was beyond stoked!! I helped him pick and coordinate his outfit with Alex, advised him on what time I thought would be best to shoot, and suggested a spot on the beach I really love. He took literal notes and we made it happen so effortlessly. It was perfection.

        Tanner and Alex were visiting from the East Coast and had a few places in SoCal they wanted to visit. He fell in love with photos from Malibu while searching for THE spot. There really is no going wrong. Malibu is gorgeous in every way and has plenty of areas to make your photos unique.

        December on the Southern California coast looks pretty much like the images here. This Point Dume Surprise Proposal was not wrecked by rain. I think my beautiful East Coasters were pleasantly surprised to experience the West Coast while escaping the snow on the other side of the US.

        Alex had no idea what was about to happen. I kept in touch Tanner him via text as we approached the moment and the anticipation grew. My last text to him was something along the lines of I”m ready when you are.” And I approached while he took the knee, then I began photographing every bit of that moment. Alex was oblivious to me and didn’t even notice I was there until after he placed the ring on her finger. You could see the excitement and surprise in her facial expression, it was truly beautiful.

        Surprise Proposals are one of my absolute favorite session to photograph. The raw emotion is so sweet and unprompted. And it’s so special to be able to photograph such an intimate moment for my couples to remember forever. My couples tell me that they can’t even process what’s happening until a few hours after when it finally hits them! To have these images to look back on is absolutely everything.
