Gabe & Alysia // Ventura beach engagement

how he asked-torrance wedding-photography

It was the weekend after Valentines day that I had decided to take Alyshia on a “last minute” weekend getaway. I had been working crazy hours six days a week that didn’t allow us to spend much time together. So I thought a nice getaway to Ventura beach would be a great opportunity to spend some quality time together.  That Sunday morning, we continued to enjoy our time in Ventura by spending some time downtown visiting all of the local boutiques and just having fun! We also spent some time walking along the beach, enjoying the sun. Meanwhile, Alyshia had no idea that our families were on the way to what would be our proposal.

During this time I was in constant contact with our families receiving updates to their location. As they grew closer, I took her to Serra Cross Park. This park was a viewpoint that overlooked the entire city and beach. The view is absolutely breath taking, and seems as if you are standing on top of the world. This spot was special to us because we first visited this spot when we started dating. I took out my guitar and played some music while we enjoyed the view. As we were taking it all in, our families had texted me that they arrived. I made up the excuse of “I am going to put my guitar away…” to go back to the car and meet up with our families. When I came back, I had asked another park bystander if they can take our picture and revealed to them my plan to capture a photo of the proposal. Alyshia thought that we were reenacting a picture we took when we first visited the park, as I dropped to one knee and asked her to marry me. She said yes!!! Almost immediately, our families came running over from watching from afar.

It was a romantic proposal that was carefully thought out and made it even more special to celebrate with our families.
