At the entrance of the venue Ryan had a little table set up with a video message playing on an iPad for Karley to watch. As she entered

Once entering the courtyard, the path was decorated with handmade signs telling Karley all of the things that Ryan loves about her

At the bottom of the stairs, overlooking beautiful San Clemente, were life-sized cardboard cutouts of images from different moments in their relationship…I personally love the one on the left haha!

I have been getting to shoot more marriage proposals lately and I have to say…I really love it! It’s definitely a bit of an adrenaline rush and it’s so amazing to be there at the very start of each couple’s wedding experience! This proposal was perfectly planned by The Yes Girls. I love working with them because they really help guys come up with fun and creative ways to pop the question! For Karley and Ryan, everything happened at the beautiful Casa Romantica in San Clemente. This spot couldn’t be more beautiful and I’m excited that I’ll be shooting a wedding there later this year! I’m so stoked for this super cute couple and for this time in their lives! Congrats Karley and Ryan!

    This is great – life size photo cut outs were a nice touch. Proposals are special moments and deserve to have a lot of thought put into them. If you know of a guy who is thinking about proposing, please direct them (or purchase them a copy of) my book which speaks specifically on the little details you definitely don’t want to forget. The book is called “How to propose without screwing it up: 50 common mistakes you won’t know you’re making and how to avoid them” and can be found at http://www.wowproposals.com or amazonReplyCancel
