I am so grateful that Alyssa and Matthew trusted me to capture their surprise proposal at Palos Verders Estate. This was such an emotional and heartfelt moment to be a part of, and I am so happy that they have these photos to look back on forever!
I spend a lot of time behind my camera at weddings and engagements. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE these shoots. I’m honestly happy to be a part of ANYTHING that allows me to capture a unique love story. However, capturing proposals, especially surprise ones, is a whole new level of exciting. When I started talking to Matthew about his plans to surprise Alyssa, I knew it was going to be amazing.
Alex seriously DECKED OUT every inch of this gorgeous pergola at Palos Verders Estate. He TOTALLY nailed it, and the decor was straight out of a movie. Every single corner was covered in fresh, red roses. The sunset behind was perfectly illuminated by the candles spread across the ground. I genuinely cannot get over it. Alyssa’s reaction was priceless, and I swear I was as nervous and excited as Matthew during the moments leading up to the surprise proposal. This was such a special memory for these two, and I feel so freaking blessed I was there to document it!
Looking for someone to capture a milestone in your life? I’d love to chat! Feel free to reach out to me here!
