Proposal sessions are some of the most magical moments I have the honor of capturing. Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing Justin and Megan’s sunset proposal at Old Mission Peninsula, accompanied by their adorable one-year-old, Theo. The golden hues of the sunset, combined with the joy and excitement of the moment, made for an unforgettable experience.

Sneak Peek and Final Gallery Delivery Times

Ensuring that you receive high-quality, beautifully edited images is my top priority. Here’s what you can expect in terms of delivery times for your proposal session:

Sneak Peek Delivery: Within 1-2 Days (typical turnaround is 24 hours but I give myself up to 48 hours during peak season)

  • Curating the Best Shots: After the session, I carefully review and select a curated set of images that best capture the essence and highlights of your proposal.
  • Initial Edits: These selected photos are then given an initial edit to enhance their natural beauty and ensure they are ready to share.
  • Delivery: You can expect to receive a sneak peek of your photos within 1-2 days of your session. This allows you to relive the moment and share it with friends and family while waiting for the full gallery.

Why the Wait?

  1. Seasonal Workload: During peak seasons, my schedule can be quite packed. Balancing multiple projects each week while maintaining quality standards requires a bit more time.
  2. Attention to Detail: Each session results in hundreds of photos. Curating the best ones and fine-tuning them to perfection is a meticulous process that ensures you receive stunning images.

  • Delivery: You can expect the final gallery to be delivered within 3-4 weeks of your session.
