Jacksonville FL Engagement Photographer {Surprise Proposal on the beach}

This is totally not my usual type of photography but when my friend approached me about photographing this, I said of course! I met this couple through some church friends and was completely honored to be a part of their surprise proposal.
I headed out to the beach, completely unaware that the Blue Angels were practicing for their air show so I got to the beach and was completely puzzled why there was no parking. Finally I got a spot and headed out to the beach to meet my friends that were setting up where he would propose. I hung out around the area and waited until I saw them headed my way. Then, I just captured the magic, including the Blue Angels practicing over the ocean, which helped me get an amazing image that I know the happy couple loved.

Jacksonville Beach, FL Engagement Photographer {A Beachy Engagement}

This gorgeous little family and I met up at Hanna Park a few weeks back for an absolutely beautiful engagement/family session. You may recognize the littlest guy here as I just photographed him with his newest stepsister a few months ago. When his mom contacted me and asked to do an engagement session, I was tickled pink. I love engagement sessions, and when you put engagement and the beach together, magic can happen. And magic did happen, I think.

I absolutely love shooting at Hanna Park and was super excited when mom, Jammie, decided on it as her spot for their engagement and family photos. When they showed up, I was so excited. They all looked gorgeous in their coordinating outfits. They chose more formal wear instead of the typical beach casual, and I love the juxtaposition of that. It totally worked.

We ended up shooting a few posed shots, and then I just let the happy couple enjoy some time together on the beach. I definitely love the real connection that I captured of these two lovebirds, and this family together. I think candids/lifestyle is my favorite.

Check out for yourself.

I’ve known this mom for a long time. She’s so dear to me so when she contacted me for a session for her and her boyfriend’s family, there was no question, it was on! We met at one of my favorite beaches and I was SO excited when they all showed up. Totally classic outfits for a wonderfully classic beach session. Check out how gorgeous these people are!

Oh, and also, the Mr. had called me earlier in the week with an amazing opportunity. He wanted me to photograph his proposal. I admit, I was shaking in anticipation. I was SO excited. I got a few shots of the family sitting on the steps and then took a step back. “Hmmm, I think something is missing here, what do you think?” And out popped the ring. She was in shock. I am so so honored that I got to be there to capture her surprise and her reaction. Best shoot ever!
