Lara thought this was just a fun trip to Cabo with friends, she had no idea that Matt was planning to propose! A lot of planning went into hiding all of the secrets that Matt had in store for Lara, and when the moment came, she was beyond surprised!
Where it started:
Matt and I were riding a waverunner on Lake Tahoe and we were catching up on life. Earlier in the day he had asked Trevor and I if we were interested in a trip to Cabo, of course our answer was yes! As we were sitting on the waverunner, talking about the trip, Matt shared that he was planning to propose!! He asked if I would photograph the moment, and of course the answer was 100% yes!!
Fast forward to December, the four of us were all getting ready for the trip. I had my camera packed, and Matt had the ring. Lara had absolutely no idea all of the behind the scenes planning that had been going on. Matt's goal was for Lara to have the perfect day from start to finish on the day that he proposed. He started the day by waking Lara up early to watch the beautiful sun rise over the water from the rooftop. Then we had planned a spa day where we got massages and mani pedis! Followed up by lunch on the beach at Lara's favorite restaurant we had been to, The Office, we went home to get ready for the sunset sailboat charter, and Lara was able to sneak a nap in! The perfect day leading up to a surprise proposal!
As we got ready for the sailboat cruise, I made sure Lara was dressed to impress in a free people sun dress, and we were off! Matt and I had a plan, a certain song was going to come on, and that was the cue that the proposal was going to happen. Once out on the water, Trevor and I headed to the back of the boat, leaving Matt and Lara in the front, their song came on, On Top of the World by Tim McGraw, and Matt dropped down to one knee!
We celebrated and took pictures on the bumpy waters, getting creative while on a tight space, while watching the sunset and whales off in the distance. After we got back to shore, Matt surprised us with an unreal dinner at a Waldorf resort on the water!
Matt and Lara, you two have such a special place in my heart! Trevor and I are honored that you picked us to be apart of your proposal trip, and I am beyond excited for the two of you! I am so thankful not only to have you as clients, but your friendship means so much to us! I have loved every opportunity that I have gotten to photograph you two, and I cannot wait to capture your love story!
