First of all, cheers to this super sweet couple. I was so nervous before this shoot, even had a dream about it. Yes that’s silly but as a photographer this is my heart and soul. I wanted to make sure this couple got the best of the best so of course I start worrying weeks before it even happens. Every photographers nightmare for a proposal shoot is that you miss the big wow moment. Thanks to the bride to be’s friends and her sweet fiance, the process was as smooth as ever. It all started with me hiding behind a bathroom and looking out for them, then I ran after them like a crazy person taking pictures of them on the beach without her noticing. And when that big moment came, I was ready. She cried he smiled, and then she said YES. Picture it in your head, the ocean sound around you, the beautiful colors of sunset (purple/pink/orange/yellow), the sand tickling your feet, a sweet moment unfolding right in front of you. It was absolutely breath taking!!! I was so happy, nervous, excited, and yes I had to stop my self from crying so I don’t fog up the lens.
Here’s the best part, family and friends were right across the street looking up from a balcony watching and cheering them on. After they all came down and everyone ran to her especially her girls. It was so much fun to watch and take pictures of. I hope all my future proposal shoots are this exciting and sweet. Nothing like being surrounded by friends and family to celebrate the big moment.
