Jonah & Anabelle Surprise Proposal at Yaquina Head Lighthouse
Have you ever thought of a secret proposal? Let me tell you a story about Jonah and Annabelle…
There is something special about getting married on the Oregon Coast and after coming out of Covid, everyone seems to be making their big plans for the future. I’ve never had so many weddings to shoot! I’ve also had several surprise proposals. Most recently, Jonah made plans to propose to his darling Anabelle on a family trip to Newport. He wasn't sure where he wanted to pop the question so I suggested the Cobble Beach at Yaquina Head Lighthouse. It is an incredible spot and definitely one of my favorite locations for portraits. Jonah and Annabelle journey'd to the lighthouse with some other family for some "sight seeing." Meanwhile, I meandered nearby, pretending to be a tourist, until I could tell he was ready to make his move. With so many people around I wasn’t noticeable and was able to capture his proposal in real-time with neither Annabelle nor the family being any the wiser until well after she had said "Yes!". It was a great success and her genuine surprise was skillfully captured in those perfect moments.
