A Lighthouse Proposal | Long Beach

I love that through my lens I'm able to capture and freeze some of the most important moments in a person's life. Moments like a guy proposing to his gorgeous girlfriend, and her reaction... priceless!

I was so honored when Brian's mom contacted me to capture his proposal to Nicole. Brian had just returned from Afghanistan, and a few days later he was due to leave to his base in Kentucky, so he had a very limited window where he could propose in Southern California so that his mom and brother could be a part of it. So we got all the details in place and met out at the Lighthouse in Long Beach. I brought my younger sister with me so that I could pretend to take pictures of her while staying close to Brian and Nicole without calling attention to the camera. It all fell into place so perfectly, and Brian's proposal was so beautiful! Nicole's reaction was priceless, and now these two brave souls are planning their wedding.

Congratulations Nicole and Brian! I'm so excited for you as you begin this new journey together, and I thank you so both SO much for your service to our country. Thank you for your sacrifice and all you do.
