Point Reyes Surprise Proposal + Engagement Photos

When Jake reached out to me about surprising his girlfriend Madi with a ring for their three year anniversary, I was so excited to be a part of the planning! Jake + Madi are from Colorado and while visiting family in Northern California, he decided Point Reyes National Seashore would be the perfect place to propose. He told Madi he had booked a photoshoot for their anniversary/her birthday as a gift, so she wouldn’t suspect a thing! We started off the shoot at the Cypress Tree Tunnel and thanks to the foggy weather, we had the whole place to ourselves. Jake and I had planned for him to propose at our second location, a secluded spot off of Chimney Rock trail. We made our way over & I set up a picnic for them to enjoy. At this point, Madi still thought it was just a nice anniversary surprise but had no idea a ring was coming. We took some more photos + it started to get even more foggy + a little bit rainy, so I gave Jake a cue that now had to be the time. I had Madi stand facing the ocean and acted like it was for a pose. Jake got down on one knee behind her and tapped her on the shoulder. Her face when she turned around was absolutely priceless! She was so shocked and instantly teared up. She said yes + they celebrated with champagne + a little picnic on the side of the cliff. If you look closely, you can see the seals hangin out on the beach below us! Point Reyes is such a magical location for a proposal. I’m so thankful to have been a part of this one!

Kirby Cove + Golden Gate Bridge Couples Session

Hayley + Bentley moved to San Francisco from Utah recently and I got to meet up with them for a quick photoshoot in their new home. We bonded over being Bay Area transplants and hiked down to one of my favorite spots in the Marin Headlands with an incredible view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Kirby Cove. We skipped rocks + ran around on the beach until the fog rolled in. By the end of our time together, I felt like we were old friends! I can’t wait for more adventures with these two! They are two of the most joyful souls and I loved getting to know them + capturing their love in San Francisco.
