These two are seriously the cutest couple and I’m so glad we were there to capture their proposal in Big Sur. Austin reached out a few months prior and explained his detailed plans to finally propose to the love of his life while they were on vacation in Big Sur. They’ve been long distance, and it’s really special when they get to spend time together, especially on such a gorgeous coastline. He knew he wanted to capture the proposal, but he also knew he wanted to get engagements done later, so they’d have that freshly engaged glow in their photos! We managed to split up the session into two parts. The actual proposal was early in the morning because he simply knew he couldn’t wait until sunset to ask her to spend their lives together. We trekked out to the cliffs in Big Sur to find the perfect spot, and wait for their arrival. We could immediately tell Katy had no idea what was about to happen. When Austin found the right spot and gave us the signal, we got into our position & he popped the question Katy’s been waiting for since they met!
Some “Shut Up!” and “Are you serious?!” later… Followed by a “OF COURSE!”, and we came out of hiding to surprise her yet again that he got the whole thing on camera, much to her delight. We took a few photos (and a few more with some excited onlookers who insisted they get a photo with the newly engaged couple), and let them have their intimate moment on the coast to revel in what just happened. Their engagement session was later that afternoon, and can be seen HERE!
