Proposal Photography in the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco
When Justin contacted me about his proposal photography idea, I was elated! On a prior trip to the Japanese Tea Garden, a friend had snapped a photo on the half moon bridge of the two of them. It became an inside joke because it looked like he was proposing. So naturally, he chose this spot at the Japanese Tea Garden for his surprise proposal!
I arrived quite early so as to scout the location and get into place. Posing as just another camera-carrying tourist, all I could do was sit and wait. When the couple arrived, Justin seemed a bit nervous, and almost immediately dropped to one knee. Luckily I was prepared and captured the shots you see here.
After the shoot, we did a quick mini session around the garden. It’s such a beautiful space and makes photo sessions a breeze. I can’t wait to go back!
