Okinawa Couple’s Surprise Engagement

“The key to a woman’s heart is an unexpected gift at an unexpected time.” -Finding Forrester

I love photographing a couple in love. Jacob and Leslee’s shoot was a little different than my usual couple sessions, since it began as a surprise engagement that turned into a couple session! I was able to capture Leslee’s surprise as Jacob proposed and the emotion they both felt. They are completely in love and that comes through in every single image.

And the beautiful setting where Jacob chose to pop the question made this day even more spectacular. My favorite beach rose to the challenge of being absolutely breathtaking for their session. It’s backgrounds like this that make me grateful to be a photographer in Okinawa! Every day on this island is another adventure and being able to share in this moment was an amazing one.

I loved so much about this session: the bare feet, the casual attire, the setting, not to mention that beautiful ring(!) and the fact that Jacob planned the entire thing and hired me for this special moment without Leslee knowing a thing!

Every couple is different, so obviously every couple’s story is different. One of the best things about couple sessions is being able to catch their story in images that they can keep forever. To be invited into these moments is one of the highlights of being a photographer.

If you’re interested in getting your own couple session, please contact me! In addition to couple sessions (and surprise engagement sessions), I also do family sessions, maternity sessions, birth sessions, and lifestyle newborn sessions. I would love to be part of your special occasion or be able to capture your love on camera. Take a look at my work and see what you think. I’d love to hear from you and work on some ideas for how best to capture you and your family.
