A proposal is always such a special thing to be able to photograph. But what makes it even more special is when it’s your sister who is getting engaged!! I was so so excited when Mike told me that he had a ring and was planning on proposing to my sister, and I was even more excited (and also quite nervous to be honest) that he wanted me to be there to photograph the moment.

So on a weekday afternoon I drove myself out to Oakland to Joaquin Miller Park, and hiked up a big hill with my heavy camera gear on me. There I waited.. And waited.. And waited in the bushes until they arrived. The spot was so perfect with the sun just starting to dip down and the view of the city of Oakland as well as the Bay from atop the hill.

Their Oakland proposal was so special to be a part of, and we got to snap a few quick photos of them afterwards before they headed off to dinner to celebrate their now upcoming wedding! I’ll never ever get tired of photographing this type of session, I really loved being their Oakland proposal photographer and hope that they cherish these photos from the day Becca said “yes!” forever and ever. 

Here’s to this amazing couple, and to getting a new brother-in-law!
