When I was first contacted by Mitch, we planned a family shoot over on beautiful Hilton Head Island.  We discussed including his daughter’s boyfriend, Beau in the family shoot.  Well, a couple weeks before the shoot Mitch contacted me and asked if I could capture some photos as Beau proposed to Magan!  It would be a BIG surprise for Magan, as she did not know this was going to happen.  My reply . . . ABSOLUTELY~!

Our plan was to do the family shoot on the beach at Hilton Head, so I scouted things out several days before & then went early the day of the shoot.  I figured Beau didn’t want to propose on the beach with a crowd of on lookers.  So I walked & walked looking for an appropriate area near the beach, although there were not many private areas.   And after some wishing and a prayer or two, I stumbled across this amazingly COOL tree.  YES~!  I knew it would be perfect.  However, it was on private property, so I did get permission from the owner to take a few photos.   I had planned to use Magan & Beau as my guinea pigs to “check the light” and get a “good spot” for photos.  This was his cue that he could pop the question when “he was ready”.  And he did! *Check out the slideshow link at the bottom to see how things progressed.

CONGRATULATIONS MAGAN and BEAU!!!!  I am so happy I got to capture some photos of this very special moment!!!


Nice bling or should I say GORGEOUS ring!

I love this profile photo I snapped of Magan.  Simply beautiful!

If you notice in the background there was a horrible storm approaching, but I was able to grab all the photos I needed.  I love this one . . .

This was the storm . . .  An awesome end to a wonderful photo shoot!
