Charleston Proposal at Folly Beach | We’re sure we sound like a broken record by always saying how much we love capturing a proposal. Over the past few years, we’ve captured 65 proposals. 65! That is a lot of nerves, anticipation, down on one knee moments, we’ve been able to be a part of and capture from California to South Carolina!
When we received the email from Nick that he wanted to propose to Allyson on the beach with a picnic surprise ending, we knew she was one lucky lady! Charleston is surrounded by water, but funny it doesn’t have many actual beach areas, unless you visit the nearby towns. This made a Folly Beach proposal a must! The long white sandy shores, rock jetties into the Atlantic, sea grass and beach houses as far as the eye can see.
We arrived early and set up the picnic, hidden just behind the jetties to ensure nothing would be seen as they walked the boardwalk towards the water. We nodded at Nick and he knew we were all set. They took a stroll down the beach for a little while, and on their way back, right long the waters edge, he was down on one knee. Perfection!
After a few private moments of surprise, happiness, and tears, Nick pointed us out. The look on Allyson’s face was priceless! In complete shock, and air hugs (thanks COVID), we captured some couples portraits before we ended by popping champagne and cheersing to forever. Congratulations Nick and Allyson!
That look when she finds out the moment was photographed! Priceless!
Let us help create the proposal of her dreams! View some of our past proposals to get some ideas on what we’ve done, but skies the limit! From a Carolina sunrise on the beach, California sunset along the cliffs, golden vineyards of Napa to Carmel Valley, historic cobblestone streets of Charleston, ancient mossy oak trees of a southern plantation, to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Together we will curate your perfect setting!
