Behind the Scenes: Unveiling the Magic of A Seaside Surprise with PKA Photography

December 31, 2023

Coronado Beach, San Diego, California, USA

Every surprise proposal is a mission, and each one demands its unique cover. Whether it's concealing myself behind bushes, vehicles, or even other people, each scenario demands a unique approach. On the last day of 2023, I found myself tasked with documenting William and Angelica's special beachfront moment, facing the challenge of limited hiding spots. Enter Stephen and Maisie, who became the unexpected stars of this behind-the-scenes story.

As the beach offered no traditional covers, Stephen graciously stepped in, allowing me to capture candid moments with his charming puppy. Our impromptu camaraderie and genuine connection seamlessly blended us into the beach environment, creating the perfect cover.

This dynamic trio, hidden in plain sight among beachgoers, played a crucial role in ensuring Angelica remained blissfully unaware of my presence. The result? A beautifully preserved moment as Will proposed and Angelica joyfully accepted.

This behind-the-scenes story is a testament to the unpredictability and charm that can unfold when capturing life's most precious moments. A special shoutout to Stephen and Maisie for inadvertently becoming part of this memorable mission.
