When Kapil called and told me he was thinking of hiring a proposal photographer for his proposal at El Matador Beach in Los Angeles, I could not wait to start planning with him. It took a few tries on a date with all the rain we’ve had lately but we finally nailed down a beautiful evening. The plan was to watch them come down the stairs and then follow them until he proposed. The beach was unusually busy that day which made it easy to blend in but tough to find privacy. After a little exploring, we were able to find a fairly private spot for the couple to share their moment.
After Kapil popped the question, it turned out his girlfriend was completely surprised. We thought maybe she would start to figure it out as they approached the location. From there, we explored the beach and took a few engagement photos. The couple was so naturally excited that it was not hard to capture so many beautiful moments. After the proposal, the couple headed back to Santa Monica for a romantic dinner and followed by an engagement part they coming weekend.
I absolutely love when couples hire me to photograph their proposal. Of course my job is to capture special moments but this is a moment that is truthfully filled with so much genuine emotion. Many times when I work with wedding and engagement clients, it is partly my job to bring that emotion out of them, but for a proposal it just happens. Many people are shocked and some are super emotional. But it will be so amazing to look at these photos in 10 years and remember the emotions you were experiencing in that moment.
