Hi there, I’m Thea.

Big Bear Lake Photographer

I’m a Photographer and working in Big Bear Lake, CA. When I’m not capturing moments, I’m either writing or hiking with my pup, Luna.

You may be wondering how you pop the question but don’t worry, you’re already thinking about one of the most beautiful places to ask! The Big Bear Valley has breathtaking views that can’t be beaten but what now?

What’s the next step?

I love capturing memories in photographs, and I’d love for you to check them out. Head over to my photography website to take a look.

02. Picking the location!

If you’re connecting with my work, we can speak together and find the perfect location for you to pop the question! Do you want a lake, mountains, or woods background? I can help! I’ve grown up and have lived in Big Bear Lake for most of my life.

And loved every minute!

03. Setting the plan

Once the location is set, we discuss how you’re going to ask the person of your dreams to marry you! Time, place, and the moments leading up are incredibly important. Want me to give you a cue? Want family to hide and then enjoy the moment with you? We’ve got this!


Big Bear Lake has multiple locations for a proposal. Do you want a lake background? We’ve got that! Woods? We definitely have that! Mountains? You know what I’m about to say, we have that!


Got the ring? Don’t forget to double check that you have the ring before you travel up the mountain! Have it hidden but ready to go when you’re about to ask the question.

Set up

Communication is key, as they say! We’ll keep in regular contact about any ideas or plans you have to get the end result you’re looking for. If you need help, I’m happy to give you some ideas!


Pick the photographer that you connect with. This is a once in a lifetime moment for you and your future spouse! Make sure you sure it with a photographer that you’re excited to capture the moment.
