Virginia Beach Photographer - Oceanfront Surprise Proposal
I love shooting proposals! It is always so exciting and slightly nerve-wracking but absolutely a joy and honor. Ryan's mom actually contacted me before the holidays to schedule a session for him. He was afraid his girl would find out about the secret details, so his mom and I did all of the behind the scenes planning. We set it up as a couples session with the aim of getting some portraits for a Christmas card.
Ryan and Alex are beach lovers so we met at the shore in Virginia Beach. We were fortunate to have a mild day in December! I could tell right off the bat that these two are meant to be together. We started shooting at one of their favorite spots and within about 10 minutes Ryan was down on one knee popping the question! Alex was clearly surprised and overjoyed by his proposal! Her reaction was priceless.

After a few minutes of hugs, kisses, and happy giggles, she turned to me and asked if I was in on the plan. I admitted my part in the scheme, which went off without a hitch. I don't think it could have gone any better!
Witnessing this special occasion and being able to document it for these two lovely people absolutely warmed my heart. Ryan and Alex were so warm and kind and amazing to work with. I wish them both many, many joyful years together!
Congratulations Ryan and Alex! Happy wedding planning!!
