Baker Beach Same Sex Sunny Outdoor Marriage Proposal – Shannon and Amanda

August 9, 2015
Baker Beach


Amanda proposed to Shannon at Baker Beach in San Francisco while visiting from Maryland on vacation. Wanting the iconic Golden Gate Bridge as the backdrop to their photos, Amanda asked me what location I suggested and I told her Baker Beach would be the best since it has postcard views of the famous Bridge. This was one of my more memorable proposals because of what was said and what was not said during the proposal itself. After emotions settled down, Shannon revealed to me that Amanda didn’t technically propose! Shannon told me that Amanda was so nervous, she asked “Do you like it?” while holding out the ring, down on one knee. To this day, this will probably be the most funny proposal I will experience! 😀

It was such an honor to photograph this intimate moment between these two awesome girls and I loved documenting their joy and affection towards each other. Their smiles were infectious and were so easy to capture and all I had to do was shoot as they made each other laugh simply by being themselves. Congratulations Amanda and Shannon! Thanks for a memorable marriage proposal non proposal 😛
