Pebble Beach Marriage Proposal – Wedding Photography

MIKE STEELMAN PHOTOGRAPHERS. PEBBLE BEACH ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. ©MIKE STEELMAN PHOTOGRAPHERS. WWW.MIKESTEELMAN.COM

I’ve been known to bust out some acting skills to hide in plain sight, thus perfecting the “Ninja Photographer” skills to capture and document special moments such as these! Last week I was an avid bird lover and photographer, getting shots of geese on the greens. LOL. I LOVE photographing marriage proposals!:)©2015 Mike Steelman Photographers ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. www.mikesteelman.com 1.800.925.1639

I feel like we’ve been sitting on a treasure chest of gold with hundreds of images to share (but so busy it’s hard to get them all lined up!), so here’s a few teasers of Jonathan and Jovina’s wedding day held at the Hyatt Highlands Inn in Carmel. What perfect Carmel weather for a very special day!

19 Years!

So 19 years ago today, Gina Steelman and I “officially” began dating. And 19 years ago this evening I actually told her I loved her for the first time, sitting in her car outside of our (high school) youth group leader’s home. (We’d been flirting and friends for years before).

19 YEARS!! Wow.

I guess she’s more of a saint than I originally thought, having put up with me this long. I knew that this blonde haired, green eyed girl with a heart birthmark from Paradise, CA would be my wife. Truly though, her love for Jesus, her heart, and selflessness was and still is one of the most attractive qualities about her! (Although she is incredibly HOT!). I knew deep in my heart that she’d be my wife…it just took her a little longer to figure it out.

I love you babe!!! Thanks for making my life incredible.

~ Mike

Just look at these two!! You can feel their love for each other… and that’s what we love photographing.:)Brittany and Michael’s big day is tomorrow at Gardener’s Ranch in Carmel Valley and we couldn’t be more excited for them! It’s definitely going to be an awesome and beautiful day. We chose to do their engagement session on their family ranch last month which lent a very personal and romantic country feel. Enjoy!

Gina and I love traveling. We also love photographing real people in love. Combine the two and, well, we’re pretty stoked! After photographing their Monterey wedding, we traveled with Stephanie and Marek this last week to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic on their honeymoon and photographed an incredible “day after” session! What an experience, and oh my, did we come away with some incredible images! We just got back home but I wanted to share at least one photo of these two lovebirds! Here’s your teaser…
