The Coolest Proposal Ever!

Jeff had been planning this for a while, nearly a full year. Based on one of their favorite movies, 500 Days of Summer, he organized this awesome Flash Mob to propose to his girlfriend Lana! He got around 100 people involved, researched and rehearsed over and over again.

I mean, let’s talk about dedication here. Everything was planned so she wouldn’t have any idea at all. He told her he would be out of town, took a picture at the Fresno Airport with his buddies and posted on Social Media. A friend of his also photoshopped a picture of him at the Denver Airport and posted it as well! How awesome?

She thought it was a normal Saturday, going to the movies with her friends while her boyfriend was on a trip. Little did she know that she was about to be part of the most amazing proposal ever and that she was gonna get asked the big question!

We were so honored to document this special day, check out our video!

Trevor & Layne – Yosemite Marriage Proposal

proposal-yosemite

This was the first proposal I’ve ever shot, and it was not planned at all! We were taking our friends from the Disney On Ice show that was in town around Yosemite, and shooting photos all day long. It was eitgh of us, four couples, so it kind turned into a couples portrait mini workshop as we explored the main sights of the park!

We were taking a coffee break when my friend Jacob, who is also a photographer, got a message from his buddy asking if he had his camera with him at the park. I mean, what a question right? Turned out he was driving from Fresno and was going to propose to his girlfriend! He wanted to know if we could take some pictures of the moment and wanted help picking a good spot in the Valley that was beautiful and not so crowded, since he had never been there before.

Jacob and I obviously said yes to the picture taking and I suggested Valley View, one of my favorite spots at the park! The four of us drove there and met them and Layne had absolutely no idea. She looked at us and said “oh hey guys, funny meeting you here!” Yeah, sure, such a coincidence... they started walking to a quieter area and Jacob and I followed them trying to be discret (it wasn’t easy). Jacob’s girlfriend and my wife stayed behind and watched from far away, as they were too excited and said they would probably ruin the moment!

Trevor gave us a thumbs up from his back and went down on his knees. Layne’s face was priceless and she said yes! After Layne’s hands stopped shaking we took some pictures of them at Valley View and then drove to Swinging Bridge for more photos. They were so genuinely happy that it was impossible to take a bad picture! Without planning too much, Trevor and Layne had not one, but two professional photographers capturing such an important moment of their lives at Yosemite National Park, one of my favorite places in the world, and now probably theirs too. It was such an amazing end to a day that was already great.
