When Miles contacted Sechrestphotos to photograph an
up-coming proposal to Erika, Alan knew I would be excited. It seems there is never enough romance to satisfy for me to witness. Miles and his family included his girlfriend were spending the weekend in Rancho Palos Verdes and Miles thought the romantic bluff setting would be the perfect time to propose. Miles is 24 and is 26 years old. They have been dating for about 1 year. Miles told us Erika was very private and the location we had to scout out would need to be secluded. He wanted some props there to add to the magic. Alan suggested we have her favorite song playing and we prepared a beautiful heart in the sand enclosed with beautiful long stem roses. The planned time would be sunset.
Alan found the spot and through texts and emailed communicated to Miles. We arrived early and met Miles’s father who went with Alan to the spot. Erika had no idea what was coming and the timing was delayed because she was taking time to ready for dinner with the family.
The plan was to have her song playing and as she approached the scene she would say something to Miles about the song then see the heart and Miles would be down on one knee.
It was exactly as planned (that doesn’t always happen). Erika was in tears an Miles was very happy. Congratulations to Miles and Erika please see some pictures at Sechrestphotos from this beautiful magical proposal.
