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.
Click through the photos below for the play by play and congratulations Michael and Jenn!
I live in Malibu, Calif.,
