Ryan reached out to me about photographing his surprise engagement. He wanted to make this surprise unique, memorable and special. I helped him plan a super cute beach picnic at Magen’s Bay with Island Bliss Weddings setting up and designing the picnic for them, it was more than perfect. This set up looked like it was straight out of a magazine, actually many people walking the beach asked if I was shooting for a magazine, lol. Ryan and Sarena arrived at the beach, I expected them to start walking towards the picnic setup but no they were walking the opposite way. I couldn’t help but think, did he see me? Later finding out that he was so nervous he couldn’t even speak. As those nerves passed over him, they made their way over to the picnic, where I was acting like I was just taking pictures of the setup. Ryan got down on one knee and asked Sarena to marry him, she jumped into his arms with a forever yes! I gave them time to themselves so they could enjoy this once in a lifetime special moment together. They popped some champagne while they both couldn’t keep their eyes off of one another and mostly Sarena’s new ring. I could feel how much love they each have for each other, all their pictures prove this undeniably.
