Half Moon Bay Proposal

Planning the Perfect Half Moon Bay Proposal

Finding the Perfect Spot

Stunning cliffside views of the Pacific, crashing waves, and warm golden sun make up the perfect proposal backdrop in Half Moon Bay. As a California wedding photographer, I have a wealth of knowledge of local locations in Half moon bay and beyond to capture proposals and engagement sessions, alike.

A professional can discreetly take photos of all the special moments from scouting the location to popping the question and toasting the future. You’ll cherish these images for years to come and share them with friends and family. A Half Moon Bay sunset proposal with stunning pictures of the joyful event will be a treasured memory for a lifetime.

Capturing the Magic of Sunset

As the golden sun dipped lower in the sky, casting an amber glow over the coastal cliffs, he led Katie down the stairs to a warm and golden beach.

The Perfect Setting

The seascape unfolded before them in a symphony of color, the azure sky morphing into shades of pink and orange as the sun melted into the horizon. The crashing waves below added a soothing soundtrack. With a variety of beaches to choose from, your perfect moment will have a stunning and romantic backdrop.

Popping the Question

The Perfect Sunset

Half Moon Bay, with its picturesque beaches and stunning sunsets over the Pacific, Is an ideal location for dreamy and romantic photos- especially a proposal!

Capturing the Moment

Phillip is a childhood friend and had arranged for me (Shannon Bryn photo+ shannonbmontgomery.com) to capture the moment. After months of planning and preparation, the photos of their cliffside proposal with the golden sunset in the background were stunning. We started above the beach with views of the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay (https://www.ritzcarlton.com/en/hotels/hafrz-the-ritz-carlton-half-moon-bay/overview/). After some posing and lots of hugs to keep warm, we made our way down to the setting sun and crashing waves on the beach. With a look from Phillip, I knew the signal and that his big question was coming. He got down on one knee, held her hand, and asked her to be his forever.


So there you have it – Phillip and Katie’s magical sunset proposal in Half Moon Bay. As the sun dipped below the cliffs, casting a warm golden glow over the ocean, they popped champagne and toasted to forever.

For any couples looking to pop the question or recreate their own special moment, Half Moon Bay at sunset is about as picture-perfect as it gets.
