Marriage Proposal • Winnie & Gerran • Carmel Beach

Gerran has been a good friend of mine since high school, and I jumped to help him fulfill his wishes to propose in the Carmel/Pebble Beach area when I learned he had purchased the engagement ring. It had been a month-long planning process, mostly because we were worried about the typical Pebble Beach cold and foggy weather in the winter. We brainstormed ideas on having the proposal indoors at the Monterey Aquarium and even at the chapel at our high school, Stevenson School… and luckily for the couple, the weather turned out really nice for their December proposal!

Since I’ve met Winnie previously, I had to put myself in disguise – hat, sunglasses, down vest… a sort of “nature photographer” look. The whole process went by so fast, from seeing them stroll down the beach, to Gerran pretending to have Winnie to take touristy photos of him, and when he popped the question, of course she said yes!

Winnie and Gerran had traveled a long way from Hong Kong on vacation and it was such an honor to be there to witness and capture the beginning of their life together. Congratulations!!
