Shelley + Chris – Surprise Proposal at Spire 73

I seriously love photographing these surprise proposals. I love the actual moment, capturing the time, and absolutely have so much fun editing these sets. Chris reached out to me about a week before to hash out his plans. We bounced some ideas back and forth, and decided to do it at Spire 73, inside the InterContinental Los Angeles. Located all the way up on floor 73 in middle of downtown LA,  the view was absolutely magical.

The best part about Chris, that I need to note is that he was an absolute planner! He went a few days prior to the actual date and took some photos for me to scout the spots. He even sent me quite a few hand drawn diagrams, and few scenario plans incase of rain, crowd, etc. Seriously, he had it all under control to the dot. When the day rolled by, I actually decided to go a bit earlier to catch the sunset. Unfortunately Chris and Shelley couldn’t make that hour, but as you can see below it was magical either way.

Congratulations again, Shelley and Chris. And thank you so much for allowing me to capture your moment! I can’t wait to do your engagement session soon!

Venue: Spire 73 of InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown, Los Angeles, CA.
Ring: Brilliant Earth


she found me!




Also decided to throw in some sunset photos with our friends, Cynthia and Jeff! Also got some s’mores up there, they were good!
