Surprise! They’re engaged! Morris reached out to me regarding his beach surprise proposal he was planning for Carolyn! He wanted to make sure we could get the shots as hidden as possible so she wouldn’t suspect anything!
They were originally headed down here for vacation with his family so this was still being done in the most discrete way! Months before their vacation, Morris contacted me to shoot the proposal. We had a few places that we thought we would be beautiful but we settled on Topsail Hill Preserve State Park in Santa Rosa Beach! They two bodies of water within the park named Campbell Lake (Carolyn’s last name) and Morris Lake, his first name so it seemed mean’t to be. I mean, how crazy is that when you read it!
Before sunset, I headed down and waited for the two to show up. The plan was that I would wait and stalk them (creepy but true) and they would walk along the beach where they planned to have a picnic. I found them, they set their stuff down and he got down on one knee. She said yes!! She had no idea it was going to happen so the surprise was a success!!
After, they set up a little picnic with champagne, engraved wine glasses Morris’ mom got them. They also had a few books for them to bask in their new engagement. It was the perfect beach surprise proposal.
Congrats again to Morris and Carolyn! I’m so glad we could get this special moment captured for you!
