Words by Lauren
I proposed to Debb, and kept the ring and the surprise a secret for five very long months. As soon as I had the ring I immediately contacted photographer, Megan, to secure a spot because I knew how amazing these pictures would come out if she was there to capture the moment live.
Not just because she’s an amazing photographer but because she holds a very special place in Debra’s heart – they have been best friends for a very long time now.
Megan helped me every step of the way from creating a dream I had in my head to find the perfect spot at the perfect time. She literally made every single vision I had in my head come true right before my eyes.
I have to say….. It was the most magical day of my life.
All didn’t go to plan though.
The day before the proposal rain was forecast. We had planned a sunset ‘styled photo shoot’ but decided that a sunrise photo shoot would have to happen instead.
So, at Asbury Beach, a beach where we’d spent so many of our first moments at the beginning of our relationship, I asked Debb to marry me.
If you are thinking about having a photographer shoot your engagement live, do it! (and while you’re at it make sure you book with Megan.) Having photos that captured the most incredible day of our lives that show real emotion, happiness, love and tears are priceless!
We are so grateful to have these photos for the rest of our lives and can always look back on one of the most amazing days ever.
