Ian was a magician in his former life, I swear. Heard the saying “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade?” Well let me tell ya, Ian is Minute Maid, himself! Tom and I are more than happy with the stunning proposal pictures that Ian took.  His creativity and professionalism made that special day in our lives much more memorable.

I booked Ian for a surprise proposal photography session. My heart was set on Baker Beach and he was quick to respond in how to position my girlfriend to get the best shot possible. Ian was an absolute pleasure to work with and also a steal at the price he asked. His photos came out amazing and I would not hesitate to work with this man once more.

I found Ian on Yelp and asked him to help with my proposal photos at Lands End. My now fiance did not know that we would have a photographer (she wanted one) and Ian hid himself well so that I could make my proposal a surprise! It was a cold and drizzly day for the proposal, but the pictures came out amazing nonetheless and that was due to Ian’s ability!

I needed a photographer to shoot my proposal, and Ian fit the bill! He captured the moment perfectly and took a handful of fun pictures after the hard part was done. I coordinated with him over phone and text in the hours leading up to the proposal itself, and we pulled it off without a hitch.

The Process



Fill out the CONTACT form above so I receive all relevant details from you. I will respond ASAP so we can start planning!



We will discuss in depth the master plan to ensure the marriage proposal photos look as good as possible!!



Show up and don’t forget the cue that we set – I will take care of the rest! And don’t forget to breathe and relax!!!



Photos will be sent 1-2 days after the proposal date so you can officially tell the world of the exciting news!

In addition to the actual marriage proposal being photographed, there is time afterwards for a mini engagement shoot! Particularly popular for Couples visiting from out of town, the extra time allows you to really allow this life-changing moment to soak in and commemorate the location
