South Padre Island Surprise Proposal


Alan contacted me a few days ago and said that he was proposing to his girlfriend and wanted a photographer there to capture it. Of course I said yes! And I’m so glad he chose me to be there! I LOVE being part of proposals. I think I get just as nervous as he gets as we prep for him to pop the question… Well. Maybe not AS nervous, but pretty close!

For his proposal, Alan wanted to be close to the water, but we were afraid she would see him from a distance since it was a bit of a walk from the hotel to the area where he was standing. We told her sister to distract her a bit by looking in the opposite direction as they walked toward him. Luckily, she didn’t see him standing there until she was pretty close and Alan was able to truly surprise her. Family and I stood at a distance to let them have their moment and then everyone joined in on the excitement!

Congratulations you guys! I’m so excited for you as you step into this new journey as a married couple. Best wishes on a wonderful engagement!

Big hugs and lots of love,


It’s hard to see her, but there she is, on the boardwalk, on her way to get engaged!
