When I think about this session and how everything just fell into place I get all sorts of giddy and just feel incredibly blessed to be a little part in Michael and Haley’s BIG day. I received an email from Michael letting me know that he was going to propose to Haley on April 24th and wanted me to photograph the secret proposal. I met up with him a few days later to get a visual of what was about to happen and was very excited for the big surprise, this would be my very first SURPRISE proposal and I couldn’t have been more excited to capture something this wonderful.
April 24th is also Michael’s birthday, so it was super fitting that they would be out and about anyway…Michael, Haley and both of their parents went out on a little boat at Balboa back bay in Newport Beach for a little morning boat ride. As they were out at sea, they floated by a dock with a cute little table set up with roses and champagne (the owners of the dock and house were actually Haley’s mom’s friends). Little did Haley know just what was about to happen. She was a little confused as the boat stopped and Michael talked her into getting off of the boat with him. I couldn’t hear a word they were saying to each other, but the moment was so touching that I was also in tears. Happy tears of course!
Michael and Haley…I wish you both the best on your new journey together. God bless you both and thank you again for letting me enjoy this moment with you. xoxo
