I met Chris through a mutual Cal Poly friend. When he asked me to photograph his proposal to Jamie, I was ecstatic. I had been wanting to photograph a proposal for quite some time and feel it’s an honor to be witness to such an intimate moment.
Chris and Jamie met at their Morro Bay church just over a year ago. Chris already knew he’d be moving to Missouri and a long distance relationship was not on his mind. But, over time, he became drawn to Jamie. In June, she helped Chris find a job working for her father. After spending hours at her house working, Chris would often join Jamie’s family for dinner.
It didn’t take long for Chris to realize Jamie was the girl he wanted to marry. He began leaving cute notes on her car, and by August, they were a couple. It was one of these notes that Jamie found on her car the morning of the proposal, asking her to meet Chris on the beach of Cayucos. This is how the beautiful proposal unfolded.
