A Don Cesar Beach Proposal

A proposal on the beach! With all of their family and friends!!! Yes, please!! I felt honored to be asked to document such a special moment! Ron and I met prior to “the date” at the Don Cesar on St. Pete Beach to map out a plan for me to photograph the moment he proposed and I knew it was going to be special! He chose the Don Cesar as they have a long history of vacationing at the gorgeous hotel on the pristine beach, which is why many of the images include the hotel in the background. His fiance had absolutely zero clue!

I arrived early and got in my spot . I had 2 cameras ready to go and Ron was texting me on the sly. I waited, guests watched me. One guest actually told me they thought I was a private investigator. Ha!! When I knew they were coming my heart was racing, and excitement was overwhelming. They walked toward the beach, the group of family and friends filtered in behind without her knowing. And well, she said YES!!! Everyone was smiling and giddy and hugging and I loved every second. Wait no longer, see her reaction below!!! I stayed awhile to take some family images as well as some engagement photos for them. What a gorgeous evening!
