Surprise engagement proposal with the whole family at the Myrtle Beach State Park

I’ve been doing a lot of these surprise marriage proposals recently. I think it’s because I’ve blogged about it a number of times and clients must be seeing my posts. Whatever the reason I always really enjoy doing these so I hope I keep getting more.

I believe this engagement proposal really was a surprise, she was under the impression we were just doing couple portraits of the whole family.  I took some pictures of the 5 different couples including parents and grandparents up by the oak trees, then some down by the dunes. When it was the about to be engaged couple’s turn for pictures, he picked up the ring box the family had hidden near the dunes, got down on one knee and proposed. She really did seem surprised so I think he did a good job of keeping it a secret. I ended up getting a little carried away with the number of pictures that evening because I was doing 5 different couples, I took over 800 shots. I think in the future I might have to limit it to less couples if I’m doing something like this, I just can’t help myself with how many pictures I take, but it still turned out really well.

I took a lot of pictures of the family this evening as well, but below I’m going to just post some of the couple that got engaged as well as his sister and her husband as well. They were both really cute couples and we got a lot of fun shots, it would be too much if I tried to post more than that. I hope you enjoy the pictures below, please let me know in the comments if you do.
