A Beachside Proposal Story-Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach

On Labor Day, I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful proposal between Eric Johnson and his beautiful girlfriend, Melissa Labbadia. The setting was the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, and it was a gorgeous day with perfect weather!  Eric's plan was to stay at the Montage with Melissa, then go out to dinner after a sunset walk on the cliff above the beach. Little did Melissa know that at a beautiful cliff overlook, Eric planned on asking her to spend the rest of her life with him. They came to the overlook where the Montage had set up a heart made out of tea lights, and after a few minutes on the overlook, Eric went down to one knee and asked Melissa to marry him. She said yes and it was a beautiful time of joy, tears, and love! I loved capturing this special moment that they will remember for the rest of their lives, it was such a precious moment that I will cherish as well! 

Congratulations to the soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Johnson!
