Photographing a proposal is really incredible! Photographing a proposal in Temecula California at the beautiful Leoness Cellars is even more incredible! But you know what tops all of that? When the person being proposed to is one of your best friends!!
Meghan and Sam currently live in Boise, Idaho but it’s San Diego where they first met and fell in love a couple years ago! It was only fitting that their proposal take place in beautiful Southern California where it all began! Sam called me about a week before their trip to tell me he was planning to propose and asked if I would be willing to photograph! To which I said, “duh.”
We planned a day of wine tasting in Temecula about an hour north of San Diego, it’s a beautiful little wine country with rolling hills and gorgeous scenery. Leoness Cellars was the obvious choice for the proposal because it has some of the best views!
The plan was that upon arrival at Leoness Meghan and I would have Sam take some photos of us and then I’d have Sam jump in for a few! Being a photographer it’s completely normal for me to force everyone into taking photos so we knew Meghan wouldn’t be suspicious. Little did Meghan know what was to come…
After a few photos Same reached into his back pocket and pulled out a ring box! Meghan was SO SURPRISED! You can enjoy watching the events unfold…
A little backstory on Meghan’s ring. It was given to her this past summer by her Grandmother before she passed away. Meghan’s Grandpa bought the ring immediately when he returned from his service in the Navy. I can only imagine how proud she is to be looking down on Meghan and Sam!
After a few glasses of wine and some celebrating we took a few more photos to celebrate! I’m so grateful to Sam for asking me to photograph such a huge moment for them! Meghan and Sam, you guys are perfect for each other. I love the way you look at each other, the way you are total weirdos around each other and it’s obvious to me that you will have an extraordinary marriage. Love you both!!
