The Proposal at Coronado Beach - Jim and Isa - San Diego Engagement Photography




San Diego engagement photography with Jim and Isa at Coronado Beach. It was more like proposal photography though.


I absolutely love getting the opportunity to capture these events! The emotions and everything that is involved is what drives me. It drives me to get better and better at capturing these moments. You can't fake that emotion and we, as photographers, get the opportunity to freeze that moment in time and save it forever for everyone!

Jim asked us if we would be available to capture this moment for them and we would not turn down that opportunity. He had a plan all laid out to propose on Coronado Beach. He had Isa's daughters and his sister come out early to set up a nice setting for them to come upon. Jim then gave Isa a massage and when it was all down he dropped down to one knee.

As this was happening, I was in the dunes hiding in a tiny bush while my little brother was near by sitting in some chairs with a camera that was on a tripod that was faced toward them hidden in between some chairs and was recording all the action.

Here are some of the great images of the proposal and the moments after: jimandisa1786 jimandisa1799 jimandisa1814 jimandisa1831

The beach was pretty empty and for some reason there was a couple of beach chairs near them with a camera on a tripod. We did our best to not give anything away, but there was no place to hide on a beach and still get images and video. :) jimandisa1836 jimandisa1841 jimandisa1937 jimandisa2030 jimandisa2061 jimandisa2062 jimandisa2120
