Sunset Proposal in Pescadero

December 15, 2023

Karissa dmed me on Instagram saying she was planning to propose to her girlfriend Zheng! We hopped on a call and she gave me her vision, and when the day rolled around, my videographer Jan and I blended in with the other passerby and captured the moments leading up to the proposal. When the sun hit the horizon, Karissa lead Zheng to the dock, took her hands in hers, got down on one knee and proposed! It was the most beautiful sunset proposal with all the most majestic golden hour colors washing over their special moment. I am so honored that Karissa trusted Jan and I to document this moment.
