Last month, my gal pal Leslie of La Bella Bonita Photography asked me to photograph a surprise proposal on the beach one evening. She had me at surprise proposal, so I had to say yes! We arrived at the location while Ian, the proposer and his girlfriend Kelsey (now fiance!) ate dinner. We patiently waited for them at the location, and were entertained by the kite surfers, doggy running and catching the ball, as well as another photographer and his client taking senior photos. We got the word that they just parked and of course we tried to make sure we didn't look too awkward sitting on the beach with cameras in our hands. We had no where to hide and sneak, so while Leslie acted as if she were taking photos down the coast line, I sat in the sand acting as if I were taking photos of the crashing waves.
Ian and Kelsey walked to the water's edge hand in hand, and we knew it was go time. All I have to say is that Ian pulled it off! Kelsey had NO idea!!! Congrats again to Ian and Kelsey on your engagement and thank you to Leslie for allowing me to photograph this with you!
Here are a few of my favorites:
