It started off as a beautiful day at Sunset Cliffs, brilliant blue skies and luscious clouds, mighty crashing waves, golden cliffs, and a loving couple excited for a photo shoot. Little did Leeanne know, this was not any other photo shoot. This session would be the day that changed her life forever.
The session had been in the works for a few weeks by this time. We worked diligently with Steven to mastermind out every detail (the location, the timing, the set up, etc.) that would make their proposal magical. Steven and Leeanne had talked about taking photos so this session would be nothing but that, in her eyes. Steven although, had another plan. We sent many messages back and forth with Steven discussing romantic proposal set ups, that not only included on of the most resplendent viewpoints in San Diego, but a picnic set up for two overlooking the crystal blue waters. We couldn’t wait and got straight to work getting all the props ready for the big day!
The day came and it was time for Steven to prepare to "pop the question!" We had worked our way from cute couples photos into some candid’s where Steven would proceed to lead Leeanne out to the beautiful cliff, waves crashing against the edge, take her hand, and ask her to be his forever!
He was smooth, cool and collected as he twirled Leeanne in a dance. Making her laugh, her dress flowing in the wind, the ring held tightly in his hand. As she spun and danced with delight, Steven waited for the perfect moment, mid spin, that her back would be facing him. He quickly got down on one knee, and as Leeanne completed her turn, was shocked to find him and a ring waiting! The emotions came quickly, and we were ready! These pictures do not do it justice. The realness, the raw unfiltered emotion was at another level. The proposal was perfect and tears of joy and hugs were in abundace. There’s something so special about watching love blossom and being able to capture these moments in time behind the lens.
