Charleston Proposal | It’s warm summer night, you just finished dinner with the extended family at a beach rental vacation house, when you decide it is too perfect of an evening to miss a sandy stroll with your love. Chris mentioned to Julia his idea to get some fresh seaside air, and she totally agreed. A short walk from the house was a beautiful lighthouse beach Julia visited every summer as a child she was eager to show him. Little did she know, Chris knew all about this beach from stories he had heard, and he had something even more memorable planned.
We were ready. Toes in the sand, hands on our cameras ready for the moment. Chris and Julia walked down from the sand dunes towards the waters edge. It was low tied so the lighthouse island seemed bigger than ever before, and for the longest time, he just held her. They cuddled as the warm breeze was the only saving grace of the humid summer temperature. He took her hand and slowly knelt down on one knee. Julia was in complete shock, stepping back, covering her mouth, and letting out the cutest squeal of excitement.
Next thing we knew, Chris was pointing us out, and Julia just couldn’t believe what was actually happening. We spent the most magical hour with them walking the beach along sunset, swinging on tree swings, popping champagne, and left the biggest surprise for last. Chris had asked us to create a gorgeous sweetheart table dessert-style picnic filled with all her favorites. Again, she was left breathless!
Congratulations Chris and Julia! We cannot wait to hear about wedding plans!
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, 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!

We have documented weddings from the breathtaking West Coast, to the historic East, and have had our work published internationally both in print and online. Our wanderlust hearts have taken us all over the country, capturing love stories, and visiting quaint hometown coffee shops along the way, and even though we've spent most of our lives in a nautical California town, we now call South Carolina home, expanding to the low country of Charleston. We are photographers, directors, curators, and most of all, storytellers for your wedding.
