As a Carolina Beach NC Photographer, we were overjoyed being a part of this Couple’s Surprise Engagement!
As Portrait, Couples, and Senior Photographers we get to meet some of the SWEETEST clients ever.
Let me do a little “rewind” about 4 months ago Phillip contacted me with his idea of surprising his sweet girlfriend Melissa for a Surprise Engagement on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk and the Beach.
Of course how could we say no? So the planning started, we chatted back and forth via email over the past few months planning every little moment. Finally we got it down to my exact words and actions to signal Phillip that THIS was indeed THE MOMENT! The Moment he would get down on one knee and ask Melissa to MARRY HIM!
Fun-Fact: Melissa “thought” she was only having a “Couple’s Photo Shoot” little did she know the next moment would Change her Life Forever!
That signal phrase was “Ok so now we are half way through the shoot and I want to change up the poses a bit”
….and change it up we did!
I took the camera in hand (which as anyone knows I retired from actually shooting a couple years ago)
However this was too important of a moment not to have two of us tag teaming it!
…and tag team we did!
I instructed Melissa to look out at the ocean for this next pose of mine, all while having her reach back to take Phillip’s hand. After I grabbed the first shot, I then said Ok Melissa now look back at Phillip…..
And There it was; THE MAGICAL MOMENT!
Melissa broke down in tears and Phillip was all smiles…all while Corey and I continued to capture their moment.
….and SHE SAID YES!
We continued on with their magical photo session which started as a Couple’s Session and came to an end as an Engagement Session. A Magical Moment Never to Be Forgotten in Carolina Beach, NC along the Magical Boardwalk.
In Case I forgot to mention…we simply ADORE being a Carolina Beach NC Photographer and this Couple’s Surprise Engagement Photo Shoot made us Love it that much more!
To Melissa and Phillip,
Thank you for asking us to be a part of your beautiful life moment!
We had so much fun with the two of you and hope you enjoyed your time with us as well.
You two are absolutely adorable and the love you have for one another surely does shine!
…oh and Phillip, (High-Five, we Nailed It!)
We wish you two a LifeTime of Happiness and Sure Do Hope to see you again One Day!
