I am starting to think that proposals are the most adrenaline pumping and exciting things ever!  When Trevor contacted me about photographing his surprise proposal to Stacey, I gladly said YES!  I have to say ladies....if your man plans out a surprise proposal with lots of details and hires a photographer to document it all, he's a keeper for sure!  
Trevor and I schemed through text messages and email because he lives in Washington D.C.  I helped him pick a beautiful beach location and that took a lot of trust on his part.  I am so grateful for clients who allow me to be a part of their special moments.  
When they arrived to the beach, I was sitting in my chair acting like a tourist when they came walking up to the left of me.  He went to the exact spot that we agreed upon and then Stacey started pulling him in the opposite direction.   "OH NO!" I thought!  I could see a little bit of panic in Trevor's eyes but I totally trusted that everything would work out perfect in the end....and it did!  He got her to turn her back towards the ocean and I got up out of my chair and booked it  so that I had a better view. (Thankfully you can't hear people run in sand--haha!)   PICTURE THIS:  A crazy lady with a camera running quickly and on-lookers laughing and giving me the thumbs up.  It was hilarious!
Trevor had made Stacey a scrapbook of all of their memorable dating moments. The last page had the words "engagement" written at the top.  He then got down on his knee and proposed!  It was absolutely beautiful!  We then did a few portraits and ring shots.  Didn't he do a fabulous job picking that ring out!? 
All of this from start to finish was about 20 minutes.  It was such a fun thing to witness!  I am thrilled for them and wish them all the happiness in the world!  Enjoy a few pictures from the whole proposal and afterwards!  :)
