I am an experienced professional. I have been capturing special moments with my camera for over 20 years and I photograph lots of surprise wedding proposals on the beach along Florida’s Emerald Coast. It makes my heart giggle every time I get to see the excitement (and nervousness) in his eyes and the happiness and joy in hers. Nothing is more special than that moment when she says yes! Being a part of an Engagement Proposal on the Beach is such a fun experience!

Photographing a Surprise Proposal & Engagement Portrait Session on the Beach
When photographing surprise wedding proposals, I typically help the groom from start to finish! Many grooms have a basic idea in mind and after filling out our easy to use form (yes, even a groom can do it). This helps us in planning the perfect themed suprise wedding proposal.

With the couple featured below, we photographed at Miramar Beach with the beautiful view of the Emerald Coast + our Lavish, Bohemian Engagement, Message in a Bottle backdrop. #boho
One of my favorite keepsakes from the Bohemian Wedding Proposal idea is "THE LETTER". I will always have the groom (to-be) send me their own "will you marry me" letter, it get's printed out and then I attach this letter to the bottle for her to open as you two are strolling the beach and come across this adorable setup. Capturing the surprise and love is truly heartwarming.
Photographing at sunset on the beaches of Destin allows us to capture some of the most jaw-dropping engagement portraits. As the sun begins to set, the colors in the sky begin to pop! This is where the magic of light happens (thanks to my husband, who always carries my gear)!

As a professional photographer, your VYB (or style) is all about the light! When hiring a professional photographer to capture once a lifetime moments, be sure to view their entire portrait gallery to ensure their style of photography matches what your eye desires. There are as many styles of photography as there are levels of education in photography. I have my Masters Degree in Photography and I will frequently use off-camera flash for my beach session as this allows me to create images exposed for both the subject and background.

For this session, we used the Godox AD600 ProFLASH to accent light this stunning couple while keeping the background sky properly exposed!
