Glad you're here!

This is probably the smartest way to surprise and propose to your partner.

Shawn hired me to photograph him and his girlfriend at the beach for a couples session. I closely monitored the weather because it was going to rain. Thankfully, we had a two-hour window before it got dark.

As soon as we arrived at beach access two, I wanted to take photos at the marsh first because I knew the wet sand would cause their shoes to clump up and make it harder to walk.

Once we reached the field, before we began shooting, I asked them to do a quick thumb war to loosen up and focus on themselves.

We took a few photos there. It was drizzling, and you could see his shirt with wet spots.

We quickly walked to beach access one.

There, we found a mailbox where I asked them to write something.

As soon as they finished, Shawn said, "Is this spot good?"

I replied, "Yeah!"

With thunder rolling in the background, he dropped to one knee and asked her to marry him.

Her eyes lit up, and in shock, she said, "Yes!"

It started raining heavily. She remarked, "I can't tell if I'm crying or if it's the rain."

He replied, "The rain a sign of luck."

Someone shouted "Congratulations!" from the balcony of their room at Shell Island Resort.

There's a saying in Scottish weddings that "a wet knot is harder to untie."

Sneaky? Maybe. Utterly brilliant? Absolutely!

Let me break down why this move is the epitome of proposal perfection

1. Effortless: By presenting the session as a couples photoshoot, you're setting the stage for your partner to bring their A-game in terms of style and appearance.

It’s like giving them a heads-up to look their absolute best without raising any suspicion. Smart move, right?

2. Proximity: As the mastermind behind the lens, I'm right there in the action, ensuring that every moment is captured in all its breathtaking glory.

No need for long-distance shots or sneaky paparazzi tactics – we’re talking up-close-and-personal photography that truly captures the essence of your love story.

From the heart-stopping question to the tear-jerking "yes," every emotion-filled second will be immortalized in stunning detail.

So, why settle for ordinary when you can orchestrate an extraordinary proposal disguised as a couples photoshoot? It’s the ultimate blend of surprise, sophistication, and picture-perfect moments – and trust me, your partner won’t know what hit them (in the best possible way)!

Why do people get proposal photograph?

Beyond their emotional significance, engagement photos serve a range of pragmatic purposes that can enhance the wedding planning process.

These sessions provide couples with an opportunity to get acquainted with their chosen photographer's style and approach, fostering a sense of comfort and familiarity that translates into more natural and authentic images on the wedding day.

What's the difference between Proposal Photos vs. Engagement Photos?

Proposal photos capture the spontaneous moment of the proposal itself, preserving the raw emotions and surprise of the occasion.

They're candid and unplanned, often taken discreetly to capture the couple's reaction as one partner pops the question.

On the other hand, engagement photos are more structured and planned, taken after the proposal and before the wedding day.

These photoshoots allow couples to showcase their love in various settings and outfits, serving as a celebration of their commitment and excitement as they prepare to tie the knot.

Should I propose on the beach?

Deciding where to propose is a deeply personal choice that should reflect the unique dynamics of your relationship and the preferences of your partner.

Proposing on the beach can be incredibly romantic and memorable, offering a picturesque backdrop of sun, sand, and sea.

The sound of waves crashing and the warm glow of the sunset can create a magical atmosphere that enhances the moment.
