1. Sunset Cliffs Proposal

Bordered by the Pacific Ocean, Sunset Cliffs is one of the great wonders in San Diego. Created as a place where “people can enjoy San Diego’s natural coastal environment as it once was, free from the effects of man and intended to inspire the user to reflect on the grandeur of the sea, and the beauty of the cliffs that was once Point Loma,” the scenery it has to offer is truly jaw-dropping. And we don’t just drop our jaw for nothing. This is the perfect movie-like setting for a romantic and intimate proposal and the photos our photographer captures will last forever.

2. Orfila Vineyards and Winery

An ultra-premium boutique winery nestled in the picturesque San Pasqual Valley, Orfila Vineyards and Winery is great for lovers of nature and wine. The vinery has won multiple awards for its delicious wine and is a favorite among locals for romantic getaways from the city. Enjoy a glass of delicious wine (or four) and reminisce your best memories together, while overlooking the 70-acre estate greenery . Just when they suddenly can’t imagine living their life without you, drop to one knee and tell them that they don’t have to.

4. Beach

With 70-miles of pristine coastline, there are countless of alluring beaches in San Diego.

Flare it up with a blanket set up with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, which we can prepare before your arrival. We’ll sprinkle it with rose petals and make sure to discreetly and candidly capture your moment and all the moments that follow.
