It's an understatement to say I was excited when Patrick told me he was going to propose during their session. I have never photographed a proposal before. I wanted everything to be perfect. That day I watched the weather like a hawk. In the midst of our serious drought it didn't seem fair that the weather said it would be raining during the time of our session. On my drive to Malibu I saw the bright sun with just a few wispy clouds and breathed a sign of relief. When I arrived and saw the tide was so high it nearly erased the beach area for us to walk on I was not happy, but I knew we could make it work. What followed was one of the most magical, beautiful sessions I've ever photographed, and I've been blessed with a lot of them.
I was completely honored to be there to witness the proposal. It made my heart sing. It made me so happy to do what I do. It was beautiful. This is a long post, but I had a hard time weeding out so many of the images. I'm so excited for them. I can't wait for when they come back to me in the years to come with their newborn baby. Family is everything.
