It’s not always that I photograph proposals, but when Brian contacted me it felt this would be a special one. He was very careful at explaining to me his vision and as a photographer himself he seem to have a good grip on what he was looking for on his photographer. I’m still not sure who was more nervous, him or I, and when the big moment happened it was just perfect.
That afternoon on the beach under clear blue sky surfers were catching waves, a few people enjoyed the sun from the shore and a performance group of equilibrists was training, in golden outfits. Brian made sure to follow my instructions on what to wear and when they came up on the beach it wasn’t hard to spot the two cute sweethearts. Under this scene, taking in the seascape and relax vibe typical of Cabo San Lucas, Brian got down on one knee and proposed.
At this moment they had everyone’s attention and were properly cheered and smiled on. Jason was crealy surprised and delighted. Looking around for us, he spotted my big lens, throwing his arms up in the air in mock indignation. Yes, I definitely helped conspire to make you happy.
Taking photos of a newly engaged photos is such a delight. No smile is forced, no moment is faked, it’s my favorite kind of photography, genuine, natural and rich in emotion. How romantic, to be engaged in Cabo on a beautiful evening.
The moment of the proposal is so great and being a part of it is such a thrill. Seeing people take a profoundly meaningful step is an honor and a privilege and one that everybody at that beach in Cabo, will never forget. Thank you Brian & Jason
