How Nick kept this dreamy Malibu beach proposal a secret is beyond me! A casual California getaway (to visit family) turned into a weekend in a beach house, private chef, concert, etc., etc., etc.
Just in case you're confused about how this managed to be a surprise proposal when Trinity (the girlfriend) is obviously aware that I am there, here's the ruse: the private chef (Michelle) is a friend of mine. She *wink wink* needed some photography to update her website and invited me along to snap photos of this cute couple having a lovely dinner on a beachfront balcony. To keep the charade going, I took a lot of photos of food and the space, and also kept an eye on Nick to document the moment he took a knee tableside. After that, the ruse was up and we headed down to the beach for some sweet celebratory engagement photos before leaving the couple at the beach house to toast their futures together. What a beautiful scene and a smashing success! Congrats to Nick and Trinity.
