Ohh my Goodness! I have another Surprise Proposal to share with you all! I loooooove proposals so much! They are so unpredictable, yet fun and exciting and super quick all at the same time. The rush is real and I absolutely LOVE it!
This particular surprise proposal was EVEN more special than usual! Why??? Because I know the sweet bride-to-be! And this is all by complete coincidence too! Eddie was just looking for a proposal photographer and happened to come across my website. He loved my work and decided to book me. Once we were doing all the fun contract stuff, I realized that his bride-to-be’s name sounded familiar. She was my eldest daughter’s Extended-Kinder teacher just a few years ago! We see each other just about everyday when I pickup and drop off my girls at school. Whenever Marlena would say hi to me the entire week before the proposal, I tried to keep the conversation to a minimum and even tried to avoid eye contact with her, hahaha. Sounds funny now, but I had to keep it a surprise!
Then on the day of the proposal, I wore a disguise just in case! I hid behind in between some houses in Newport Beach and wore a huge beach hat and sunglasses. Once Eddie proposed and Marlena said “YES” and accepted his ring and hugs and kisses, I revealed my true identity. It was so much fun and such an exciting moment to be a part of!
Congratulations again to these sweet lovebirds!!! Wishing them lots of happiness together. They seem so much in love and I was honored to photograph this special time for them.
If you are thinking about proposing to your sweetheart, please consider hiring a professional to photograph that super special moment for you! I would absolutely LOVE to help you! I photograph Surprise Proposals all over Orange County, CA.
Thank you and Enjoy!
