Guys, I have been DYING to tell you about this event. Its been the works for months now and it didn’t disappoint. It all started when Will sent me a simple email where he had an idea to try to surprise purpose to his girlfriend. Surprise proposal. In Big Sur. That I got to photograph. YES!
Quickly, we started our back and forth communication helping him come up with the best plan we possibly could. We had the chance to meet up at the Post Ranch Inn, one of Big Sur’s most amazing properties around. Seriously, if you all are ever in Big Sur, Post Ranch Inn is where its at! The location is everything that I could have hoped for with a property like this, the staff is kind and views are unparalleled. Will and I had the chance to meet up at Post Ranch Inn a couple of weeks before the actual proposal to chat about details. He secretly drove up from LA for the day so he could map out his plan…told you there was a serious amount of planning and commitment that went into this day!
Finally, their day came. I went to the location first and laid out the simple scene that we had planned out. Nothing major-proposing at the edge of the world is pretty spectacular by itself.
As they walked around the corner, she still had no idea what was going on. She saw the blanket, she saw the flowers, but she didn’t get it until he started to get down on one knee.
“HOW DID YOU DO THIS??!?!” was about all she could get out other than YES!
As soon as some of the shock had worn off, we walked through the redwoods which always provide for some of my favorite images in this beautiful state!
Up the ridge and onto the next stop-champagne and snacks in the nest!
Will and Vanessa, thank you for allowing me to come along on this ride. It was amazing!!!!!!!
