Surprise Proposal

Griffith Park Observatory Surprise Proposal | Nafisa and Mo

Mo called me a few months ago and asked if we had availability sometime in February. I quickly asked him if he was ready because I knew he was dating and was pretty serious about Nafisa. He told me he was more than ready and couldn't wait to start planning his proposal to her. 

After our planning session, we scouted a few locations and settled on Griffith Observatory overlooking Downtown Los Angeles and I couldn't have been more happy for him. I've known Mo for a number of years and to see him grow from a car-enthusiast, career-driven bachelor to a soon-to-be-married man is pretty awesome. 

Once we were all at Griffith Observatory, I gave him our pre-planned hand signals and we let the events unfold. 

As a few words dribbled out of Mo's mouth, Nafisa absolutely lost it! Nothing gets by her and for Mo to be able to pull off getting the ring, planning the proposal and coaxing her to come on a fake double date was absolutely incredible. 

Nafisa had no idea it was coming and she couldn't believe what was happening. After her consistent laughter and overwhelmed emotions, a crowd starting to form, they pulled out their cell phones and started recording and taking photos and gave a huge Congratulatory cheer as she said, "Yes!" to Mo's marriage proposal. 

They're perfect for each other and we can't be more excited to be a part of their upcoming wedding. 

I hope you enjoy these images as much as we did being a part of it! And make sure to give them some love in the comments below!
