I’m so excited to share this session with you. I had the pleasure of photographing Tony and Sovy’s surprisal proposal! It all happened at sunset on a gondola drifting along the Pacific Ocean in Long Beach and it was ohhhh so romantic!!!
Tony did such a great job planning out every single detail! He called me a few weeks before the proposal. We met up and planned exactly where I would be waiting for them once they pass through on their gondola ride. The gondolier threw a bottle into the water and pointed it out and Sovy reached down to grab it. She realized it was a message in a bottle and as she was reading the sweet message, Tony got down on one knee and proposed! And she said “YES!!” I captured all of the photos from the shore. Afterwards, Tony pointed to me and she was so excited that their special moment was captured! I had to hide and pretend I was taking photos of other random people and even asked if a group of guys would pose for me so in case Sovy saw me from the gondola she wouldn’t get suspicious. We gotta do what we gotta do, right?! I couldn’t spoil the big surprise!
Once they were finished with their gondola ride, I met them on the other side where they originally started. We had fun taking a few more photos together before they went off to celebrate! Gondola Getaway in Long Beach was such a perfect location and they helped Tony with the planning. They average a proposal a day! Isn’t that so fun? I love romance!
Congratulations again to the lovebirds!!! I had so much fun photographing their surprise proposal! If you are planning to propose to your sweetheart, let me capture those sweet memories for you! It would be my absolute pleasure!
