Marriage Proposal | Amy & Chad | La Jolla Cove

Chad emailed me back in April while planning his trip from Florida to San Diego with the idea of proposing to his girlfriend on the beach. We planned it so we would bump into each other at La jolla cove and pretend to know each other from High School and; since I would have my camera, Chad would ask if I could get one picture of the two of them. I suggested we go to a spot “over there on the rocks”, took one picture of them looking at the camera, Chad said “wait one more picture!” He dropped to one knee and popped the question!

She Said Yes!!  Amy’s Mom & Dad (not shown, he was taking pictures behind me just in case ;))  and Chad’s friends  witnessed the proposal!

Amy tells Chad’s Mom the news on the phone.

Congratulations Amy & Chad!

When planning our engagement, I wanted everything to work out perfectly. Being on the Florida east coast, choosing the right photographer to capture one of the most special times in our lives was a top priority. I found Mark Lenoce’s website and knew immediately that his work was the style of photography that we were looking for. I contacted Mark via phone and setup a date for the surprise engagement. We created a covert plan together and executed the plan exactly how I wanted it to go. He was professional at all times, he was early for the shoot and ready to go. I can’t say enough good things about our experience working with him. Thanks for everything Mark!!! Chad
