Tyler & Megan - Outer Banks Surprise Proposal
I’ve never had to propose to someone but after this session I think I can say I know a little bit about how it would feel. Heart racing, palm sweaty nerves, because that’s totally how I felt walking around with a ring in my back pocket looking for the perfect spot for Tyler to pop the question to Megan.
I also knew that this was a complete surprise. We had it all planned for months now. Tyler was cashing in a couple session she had scheduled almost a year ago that had to be postponed due to an unplanned vacation and Megan didn’t think anything of this new session at the beach. I had to pretend to do a typical warm up session, (cue the first 10 minutes of getting to know one another and the always awkward first few photos) so that they’d be camera ready for the moment Tyler dropped to one knee.
As I directed Megan to stare off at a Cargo ship a little ways off shore, I told her I was taking one of my signature artsy photos where you’re staring off into the distance, however really I was exchanging ring boxes with Tyler. I was super nervous because I knew I only had one shot at this and it had to be epic, and when I told Megan to turn around BOOM! She was shocked, excited, and of course she said yes.
Megan’s family had been staying at the Outer Banks all week for a vacation and were leaving the next day so they took the opportunity to grab a few family photos and celebrate the big announcement.
In between Tyler and Megan played in the water with me and just took each other in during this once in a lifetime moment.
I couldn’t have asked for sweeter people to have captured this moment for and I can’t wait to hear from them again in the future when the plan the wedding.
Cheers to a lifetime of happiness you two!
