Jessi thought she was there for a couple’s session with Philip to update my style guide, but little did she know that Philip and I have been chatting back and forth to set up the perfect surprise proposal at Muir Beach Overlook!
Everything from the dress and shoes that Jessi was going to wear, to what prompts I would say during the session was carefully planned out. It started as a couple’s anniversary session as Jessi and Philip danced and kissed on the trail. After a few minutes, we made our way down the trail to the Overlook, where Marie of Laurel and Vine carefully placed 6 baskets of pampas grass to set the scene for the surprise proposal at Muir Beach Overlook.
Having been together for five years, I knew it would be a little challenge to make sure Jessi did not expect the surprise proposal from Philip. I advised the couple that I wanted to try a new prompt/pose on them, and asked them to turn away from each other. Jessi did just that, but Philip knew that was his cue to get ready. When asked, Jessi turned around to find Philip on one knee.
After the surprise proposal, we continued down to Muir Beach to pop some champagne and celebrate! The air was warm, and the sunset was like pink and peach cotton candy in the sky. Jessi and Philip concluded the proposal session dancing barefoot on the beach and kissing amongst the crashing waves.
Jessi and Philip – I am so thankful for you! I am so glad to have been able to capture this amazing chapter in your lives! The love you share is unwavering, and I am so excited to see what the future holds for you! I can’t wait for your engagement session and wedding!
