{Laguna Beach Photographer-Aubrey and Steve Proposal: Main Beach, California}

Love. True love, not lust, but the real amazing butterfly feeling of love, that is what I had the opportunity to witness and photograph. Steve called me to let me know his plans for proposing to Aubrey; he would tell her they were having lunch in Laguna and arrive early enough to go for a walk on the boardwalk. Aubrey, the little investigator that she is, knew something was up and no matter how many times we tried to throw her off, she wasn’t letting it happen. With 10 minutes to kill before their 12:30 lunch reservation they walked down to the ironically empty boardwalk. (Moments before I made a loud announcement to everyone on the boardwalk that a couple was about to get engaged and if they could move out of the way, that would be awesome.) 

Hiding in a nearby bush, I was ready to make my way towards them as both Aubrey and Steve were in their position, looking out towards the water. Just then, Aubrey unexpectedly turned around. I dashed to hide under a canoe as my feet flew up and I laid flat. The surrounding families were watching the entertainment. Steve then turned towards Aubrey, got down on one knee, and told her what an incredible woman she is and how he cannot wait to spend the rest of his life with her. Steve is the most sincere, kind, and loving man. Aubrey is the sweetest, intelligent (sometimes too smart for her own good) beautiful, and amazing baker. Together they make such a perfect couple and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding next year!
