The best thing about being a milestone photographer, is having the opportunity to capture happy moments in people's lives!
What seemed like a traditional end to a vacation on Mission Beach for Casey and Ashley. This time it was different. Casey had contacted me, asking if I could document his proposal to his beautiful girlfriend Ashley. The challenge for me was to stay hidden, because she had no idea.
As someone who has seen lots of sunsets, San Diego did not let Casey down. The pinkish-orange sky and large teal waves, really set the mood. As he waited for the right moment I had pretended to be one of the many landscape photographers who photograph sunsets on the beach. While feeling a bit like a paparazzi, every time Ashley had looked in my direction I quickly pointed my camera towards the ocean.Soon enough Casey reached in his pocket, Stood up giving Ashley his hand. After a quick embrace, he got down on one knee and popped the question. Behind me. towards the boardwalk, you hear Cheering from the family for the happy couple.
I'm not gonna lie. I shed a happy tear or two in the moment. Congratulations to the this happy couple! May your lives be filled with love and happiness for years to come!
