LAURA & RACHEL
FIND IT FAST
With each proposal we capture, embarks a new journey. We strive to make each unique, and swoon the bride-to-be with something she had only dreamed of. Ed and I talked for months leading up to their vacation time in Big Sur and the excitement kept building. Saturday we loaded the truck, grabbed a few of our friends, and headed down the Big Sur coast. The beach was packed, the parking lot full, there may have been a moment of sheer panic, but we were determined to do whatever it took to make this an epic evening for Ed and Mena. Finally, what felt like heavens gate opened, and we were allowed in. We quickly found the area we felt would be perfect for what Ed had in store for his future fiance, and we began to set up this elaborate surprise.
We synchronized watches, grabbed our walkie talkies (yes, we really do this!), and took our positions along the beach. We were a team of five, and spread all across the beach, waiting. They were spotted! Our hearts were pounding, hands a little shaky, this is one of the most nerve-racking parts of the job, but we LOVE it! Next thing we knew, Ed was pouring out his heart, Mena gasped as her hand covered her mouth, and watched Ed get down on one knee. It was absolutely breathtaking! Everyone on the beach stood to their feet at cheered. It was a day none of us will ever forget.
Thank you Ed and Mena for allowing us to capture this monumental moment in your lives and we can’t wait for your Michigan wedding!
Look at that smile! Right then we knew our surprise was a success!
Once the big moment had happened, Ed walked Mena to her awaiting surprise.
Look at that view! Once the champagne had been toasted, kisses were shared, we headed to the beach for sunset portraits.
You can only find this magical light in Big Sur.
Congratulations you two!
