You know when you read a story or an article and you wonder if its real? That’s honestly how I feel every single time I think back on Anna and Brian’s proposal. This was one of my first projects when I moved to Savannah and man is it a story to tell. The proposal definitely didn’t go as planned, but that didn’t make it any less perfect. It’s a part of their story – and a pretty magical one at that!
Anna had been following me on Instagram for a little while and reached out to me to book a couples session with her boyfriend, Brian. I was new to the area and so excited to photograph a beach session (coming from Colorado, beaches were a little hard to come by, haha) with this cute couple! A few days later, Brian pulled the ultimate surprise proposal move and reached out to me to let me know he wanted to pop the question to Anna during the session. Proposals are one of my favorite things to shoot, so obviously I was completely here for it. We worked out the details and waited for the day to come.
The evening of their session came and it was the epitome of the perfect day at Tybee. There was just enough cloud cover mixed with the perfect amount of sunshine to create a watercolor sunset, the breeze was cool and steady, and the beach was surprisingly not crowded. Anna and Brian arrived looking totally photo-ready in the perfect coordinated, casual outfits. I posed them for a few photos to really set the tone that we were just there for couples photos….no surprise proposal business going on at all (wink, wink).
