So on the 4th of July I got to assist Amanda with Kimberlin Gray Photography with a surprise proposal on the VA Beach oceanfront. This was my first time ever doing anything like this and I jumped at the opportunity! (Even if that meant getting up at the crack of dawn and driving from Hampton). It was totally worth it!
By the time I got there Amanda had already placed the bottle on the beach with the note in it. Shawn and Wendy would be making their way soon and we would pretend like we were shooting the sunrise. I am sure we looked funny.
I couldn’t help but laugh because Wendy did not want to pick up the bottle. She was certain it was somebody else’s and they were going to mess up some guys moment. Even as Shawn began reading the note, Wendy was busy taking pictures of the Sunrise. It was hard to keep the camera steady because I was laughing…Poor Shawn. 🙂 But once she realized it was for her, it was picture perfect! She was in absolute shock and her reaction was priceless! There were even beach goers cheering Shawn on!
I loved every moment of it and in the short moment I met them they seemed amazing together! Hopefully I will get to see them again on their wedding day/ engagement photos….Hint Hint…Lol. 🙂
Congratulations Shawn and Wendy, I wish you nothing but the best!
