Austin reached out to me about two weeks before their planned Destin vacation about me capturing his proposal to then girlfriend, Taylor. Of course I said yes! Austin and I planned for two weeks. Finding the best location and way to surprise her. We came up with Henderson Beach State Park and a key phrase so that he knew that was when he was to get down on one knee.


It went like this: we all showed up to the state park around the same time to walk to path that is inside the park. Little did Taylor know that Austin and I knew each other. I acted like I was just walking the path with my camera taking pictures of things. At the break off they went to the right and I went to the left. When we crossed paths I told them I was a reporter for a local newspaper and asked if they were vacationers. The story I was "writing" was about how COVID had affected travelers plans. I asked a few questions and then asked if I could take a picture of them to go with their section of the story they said yes. The code phrase was "let me get one more picture". That is when Austin got down on one knee. Taylor had absolutely no clue what was coming and you could see on her face along with pure joy and happiness.


Thank you Austin so much for trusting me to capture such a special moment! Congrats to you two, I cannot wait to see where life takes you!
