I think out of everything I photograph; weddings, engagements, food, concerts, proposals might be the most exciting and emotionally thrilling thing for me to photograph. Ohhhh! This was so beautiful for me to witness and photograph! Here’s the story
Calvin contacts me and tells me he’s going to propose to his girlfriend. Keep in mind, nobody else knows about this except for his best man, so I already feel special during the first few emails and phone conversations.  The plan was for us to start under the santa monica pier sign and for me to follow them all the way down and under the pier which is where he said he was going to propose to her. Everything went according to plan, he texted me he was at the location, and I followed them like a secret agent/paparazzi during the whole time. I came across two problems,  The first was Calvin got asked to take a photo of a family half way down the bridge and I was by myself at the time with a huge lens, and I had to pretend like I wasn’t following them by being fascinated by the sight of traffic below the bridge. The second was a couple of girls came up to me to ask if I was actual paparazzi, I tried to shoo them away, but they were nosy and stuck around because they realized what was about to happen. Now, remember when I said everything went to plan? Well for the most part it did, Calvin was supposed to stretch his arms before he proposed which was supposed to be his indicator that he was about to go on his knee. Well he totally skipped that part and just started his pre-proposal sweet talk which I found out later on that Tammy remembered none of it. Although I didn’t hear her response, I was pretty sure she said yes because of her body language and HUGE smile on her face.

So enjoy here it is!!!

Hello everyone! I’m excited to present Minsi and David’s Engagement Session. I will list a few things that made this shoot memorable
1)David borrowed my grey skinny tie for this shoot. For some reason, that excites me.
2) Minsi and David both work for google. I volunteered to navigate using google maps, and we got lost.
3)We were walking around the pier and around this random outdoor party.I was stopped by a construction worker with a sign that said “stop.” I was really confused because everyone was walking around them just fine. Then he switches his sign around and it says “dance!” So we danced way through the party icon smile Meet Minsi and David . San Francisco Engagement Session
