Malibu Proposal Photography | Mike Proposes to Nina at Point Dume Destination Engagement Photography
Mike hit a home run by proposing to Nina at sunset at Point Dume State Beach in Malibu, California. And then he hit a grand slam by inviting both their families to arrive to the beach and surprise her immediately after he proposed, hugging and snapping photos on the sand together before going out for a big celebratory dinner (after we sprinted up to the top of Point Dume to capture a quick set of engagement photos with the knockout ocean view).
Congratulations Mike and Nina!! I'm sure your wedding will be just as playful, easy-going, and stylish as the two of you are!
If I could photograph a proposal every day for the rest of my life, I would be the happiest person in the world. My favorite emails in the world to receive are the ones that begin, "Hi Cecily, I'm planning to propose to my girlfriend in Malibu..." because I know that I get to play Santa's-little-elf and find the right hiding spot, hear the back story, and pull of the surprise of the century for the luckiest girl in the world.
That's pretty much the story of Felix and Katheryn's Malibu proposal. Click the read more link to check out the photos!
Since I missed the boat on being one of Santa's elves, I feel like documenting a real live proposal is the closest I'll ever get to being part of life's greatest surprises. Michael reached out to me to document the moment he popped the question to Jenn. On a lazy Sunday afternoon in the fall, the two of them drove up PCH to grab lunch at Malibu Seafood, one of their favorite early date spots. Unbeknownst to Jenn, I was hanging out on the sand with a book and my zoom lens, waiting for the moment they would walk over.
After the moment Michael asked, we spent a few minutes shooting engagement photos right on the beach where it all happened.

Ryan proposes to Alexa at Charmlee Park in Malibu, CA | Malibu proposal photography, Malibu engagement photography
As a photographer, I'm seeing a trend toward photographing actual moments in people's lives, not just the posed portrait photo shoots and I'm. Loving. It. When Ryan reached out and asked for photos of his proposal to beautiful Alexa, the love of his life, I knew it would be one of my favorite moments of the year.
I live in Malibu, Calif.,
