I had the pleasure to participate in the proposal by our client, to his beautiful girlfriend this weekend past.

Brandon had planned this romantic moment leaving out no details.

First he spent time scouting out the most beautiful beaches and landed on Crystal Cove in Laguna Beach.

He went through his thought process and planned to have Sarah’s BF, Katie invite Sarah to brunch with a brisk walk on the beach first (of course it would be Crystal Cove), such a nice rouse.

Brandon invited his family to attend and drive him to the location (this would make certain) Sarah wouldn’t recognize his vehicle. Mom and Sis gladly agreed to attend and witness the magical proposal.

Brandon made sure there was clear communication between himself and Katie. Katie would text Brandon when they were close and again when they started down the stairs.

Brandon not wanting to leave any stone unturned, hired Sechresphotos to capture this romantic moment forever on film.

We met Brandon an hour before Sarah was to arrive. We talked about angles and light and where to best position him on the beach. We worked closely together to find the perfect spot to produce the magical photographs which would can capture this memory.

Brandon told us he had his words planned but he was very nervous. He wanted to make a large heart in the sand and fill it would rose pedals he had recently collected.

Once the heart was completed we all helped him find shells and he wrote the words “Marry Me” with the shells in the sand next to the heart.

All of this may sounds wonderful like a script from a movie. There is a big difference. The real emotion and love shown by Brandon and Sarah was heartfelt and joyful unmatched by fiction.

Tears filled my eyes as the scene played out. I feel truly lucky to witness their proposal.
