Beach Surprise Proposal - Ian & Kelsey | Virginia Beach Photographer

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:

Heather & Samuel - Married | Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer

You may recognize these two lovebirds.  I did their engagement photos the weekend prior to their wedding at First Landing State Park.  I have to say that their wedding day was beautiful! They were married on the lawn of the Best Western Plus Oceanfront Hotel, and of course, because it was in front of the Oceanfront boardwalk, they had additional guests.  But regardless, they were married in front of their family and friends.  They were famous a few times when a few beach goers wanted to take selfies with them, as well as some guys wanted to take a selfie with the ladies as we did their version of the Bridesmaid pose.  Such a fun night!!!

Congrats again Heather and Sam and thank you for allowing me to photograph your special day!
