Montaña de Oro Engagement

 Lauren & Scott | Montaña de Oro Engagement

We heard a beautiful story, and it goes a little something like this.

Walking along the beautiful Montaña de Oro Bluffs Trail Lauren & Scott, along with her mom, could feel the wind on their faces, and the salt in the air. They stared out across the expansive and deep blue of the Pacific ocean, watching the waves crash against the cliffs and sandy beaches. Scott knew this would be the perfect moment to ask the question that would change his life forever.

He reached into his pocket. And paused.

Scott pulled out his phone and asked his soon to be mother-in-law to take a few photos of Lauren and himself.

He passed the phone to her and pulled Lauren to the side.

As he smiled for the photos with his soon-to-be bride, he took a deep breath. This was the moment.

Lauren’s mom took a few photos and tried to Give him back his phone. But he insisted. Just a couple more.

She stepped back. And as Scott turned to face Lauren he reached into his pocket a second time.


This was the moment.


As he pulled out an engagement ring they had picked out together, he asked Lauren to marry him. Lauren excitedly said yes, and they were engaged! However, her mom also got caught up in the excitement so much so, that most of the photos taken with Scott’s phone were of the ground.

But we think that’s one of the cutest proposal stories we’ve ever heard. And we wouldn’t change a single detail.

Lauren & Scott, we loved your Montaña de Oro engagement session! Really, we loved every minute of having you two in front of our cameras, and it just made us even more excited to celebrate your marriage at MarFarm later this year! We’re so glad our first visit to Montaña de Oro was with the two of you (Lauren, your mom is pretty great, too :)) Here are just a few of our favorite photos from our time together. We hope you love them as much as we do!
