Yue & Darren | The French Laundry Proposal Photography

Yes or Yes! This was such a sweet surprise proposal. Darren knew that Yue would suspect that a proposal was coming, because they had already gone ring shopping together. Plus, she knew they had a reservation for The French Laundry where they had dined once before. But he still had some surprises up his sleeve….

Jayleen & Kailer | Golden Gate Bridge Double Surprise Proposal

Jayleen is a Puerto Rican, queer, non-binary badass. Kailer is a proud trans man and a veteran.

Nigel & Ritchie | Golden Gate Bridge Proposal Photography

This was such a fun little proposal, complete with a musical performance by the two grooms-to-be, backgrounded by the golden gate bridge. Nigel’s plan was to tell Ritchie they would dress up and meet their friends in the park to play some music. Of course, this being a pandemic and the whole premise being completely…

It was so fun to photograph this engagement-turned-surprise-proposal for Pre and Nav. Earlier this year, Nav asked Pre to marry him, and she joyfully said yes. It was a beautiful, if low-key proposal, given the circumstances of the pandemic. As they planned for their engagement portraits with me, Nav decided that he would love to…
