Last weekend Flytographer contacted me about a surprise proposal that Michael had planned for his girlfriend Erin at the Santa Monica pier, and I instantly said YES.
I secretly communicated with Michael via text, where we explained our precise meeting point and what the other was wearing. Erin had no idea that a photographer was involved in their 4th of July weekend at the beach.
As soon as I spotted the gentleman in a blue button up walking hand in hand with the girl in the long blue dress, Michael and I exchanged a quick glance or two, and I followed behind the couple as he found an open spot on the sand to propose.
Afterwards we took a stroll under and around the pier, chasing magic light and going round and round on carousels.
Enjoy the shots I captured with my mega zoom lens…
Congrats, Michael and Erin. Wishing you all the best!
