Shereen & Joshua are engaged! Bay area surprise proposal and engagement photography!

There are no words to describe the nerves for a man who is about to propose to the woman he has chosen to spend the remainder of his days with.  There just aren’t any words at all.  I could tell you that you feel like you’re going to dance like King David – “What did David do?  What did David do.  Singing and dancing!” (shameless Footloose reference here), and you feel like you’re going to puke at the same time.  In a good way.  Weird and confusing and exciting and scary and wonderful all rolled into a rainy, Santa Cruz Christmas tree cutting ball.  But that doesn’t really cut it.

Joshua, my man, you held it together and being that I’ve known your fiance’ for so long, I can without hesitation say you picked a wonderful, amazing woman to spend the rest of your life with.  And Shereen, based upon your surprise and reaction, and the fact that you said yes, I’d have to say the same thing about you finding Josh.

Congratulations you guys!

This is actually the sweetest proposal I´ve ever seen. I neary cried (I am a guy, damn)
These pictures are so well done, so emotionally, it just took me away. Fantastic work. I think you deserve the medal “emotional content” of the month.

Absolutely beautiful. When photos can give me that butterfly feeling and jerk a few tears from me that’ when you know you’ve photographed emotions very well. Great job!

What a great photo set… You really managed to capture the story here… It’s much more than the usual random posed shots. LOVE IT!
