Crystal Cove Engagement : Carlee + Leland

August 23, 2016

Filed in: Engaged

A few weeks ago, Leland contacted us from the East Coast to photograph his beach proposal here in Southern California. He and his girlfriend Carlee boarded a plane together for a surprise vacation. She had no idea where they were going, except that it was somewhere in California. Little did she know, he had been planning a secret proposal with us to photograph for weeks.

On a perfect sunny day at Crystal Cove in Newport Beach, he got down on one knee to ask the girl of his dreams to marry him. Of course she said YES!

Leland, you melted our hearts with the amount of thought and love that went into your proposal. No detail was left forgotten, and it was literally perfect. Everything went exactly according to plan. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of such a magical day! You will forever be in our hearts, and can’t wait to see what is in store for your future with Carlee.

Carlee had always warned him that the most important thing to remember was to hire professional photographers to capture the moment. The crazy thing is, we didn’t even have to hide! We sat with our cameras, casually eating our lunch on the sand and she didn’t even notice us until he pointed over in our direction after he proposed.

She couldn’t believe he had been planning to propose for over two months! They both gushed over sparkly new ring…

We honestly wished they lived here in Newport Beach, California so we could spend more time around them…
