        When Evan reached out for this Malibu Surprise Proposal, I was stoked and ready! Malibu has some of my favorite things including cliffs, greenery, and ocean all in one spot! This is the location I suggested, it was perfect.

        This was a very secretive and elaborate proposal. Evan and Lauren are from Fresno and were just visiting Malibu for a few days! He found me through instagram and we began planning!

        Their Outfits

        I asked Evan to have them coordinate in wearing clothes that will compliment each other and the environment. I really wanted peaches and tans because I knew this location would help their photos really be so beautiful. And I wanted Evan to wear darker pants but still have a lighter shirt to compliment Lauren. He made it happen, they dressed so perfectly. They were beautiful. Also, I am a BIG fan of flowy dresses because we get to play with the wind and that’s always fun.

        Malibu Surprise Proposal

        We talked about the best time to photograph the proposal and still have time for a shoot right after. Evan coordinated very well and altered their plans to fit our timeline. This was so much to help plan!

        He really wanted a heart to mark the spot (HOW CUTE IS THAT?!)! So, I met him while Lauren was getting ready at their hotel and took the petals from him to create the heart at our location.

        The wind was nuts this day but I made it happen and saw the kindness of strangers who passed by while my petals inevitably flew. Everyone teamed up in the name of love, it was beautiful. When I finally finished the heart, Evan and Lauren were close and ready to come! I climbed to be up above them when he popped the question.

        Then I moved around and photographed the proposal and her reaction. It was the sweetest thing ever. She wasn’t entirely sure it was going to happen but she said she had some sort of clue that it might!! She was stunning and her rock matched her well! — Good job Evan!

        Their Engagement Session

        We explored the remaining area of this Malibu location to photograph their engagement session. It was BEEAUTIFUL you guys. They’re using the photos for their Save the Dates and I cannnnnnnot wait for their wedding day in October! It’s going to be a total dream boat in their NEW wedding venue that they own (my couples are totally badass).

        Hope you enjoy this Malibu Surprise Proposal as much as I did photographing it!
