One of my favorite things to photograph are surprise engagements. Especially if she says YES! It takes quite a bit of planning to sneak up on the couple and get the shot. With this family I has awesome communication with the future grooms parents. We made a plan and literally kept texting until we were all on the beach and I had my eye on them. It's really tricky picking out people you have never seen before on a packed Clearwater Beach. I took a friend with me so I could pretend I was photographing her and then I could turn the camera on the couple when it was time. It worked out well and as you can see...she said yes!
