Kali & Nick | The Proposal | Outer Banks Wedding and Engagement Photography

One of the most fun types of events that we get the awesome opportunity to capture is a real life, in-person, marriage proposal.  From the calls and planning of our secret capturing of such an event to the tears of excitement and joy, a proposal is absolutely full of emotion from start to finish.

Each proposal is unique.  Different location, unique and personal touches.

Nick planned his proposal to Kali to include rose petals, candles, a sign documenting their first date, and a super-romantic message in a bottle.  A super fun and very unique part of Nick and Kali’s engagement was that Nick had asked friends and family to be present.  How cool??!

So…all set-up…we…all…hid…waiting anxiously.

Then, on a relaxing evening “stroll down the Outer Banks beaches,” Nick and the entirely-unsuspecting Kali happened upon this message in a bottle surrounded by roses and candlelight. {Sigh}

Well…and, the rest is super-awesome, documented history.  And, we couldn’t be happier that we got to be there.

Wishing the two of you an awesome year of planning and many many years of happiness!

Until next time~

I have an affinity to all things light and airy.  I love color, sunshine, romance, and laughter.  I love inspirational quotes, meeting new people, flowers, and the idea of finishing a great book.  My go-to drink is coffee.  My outlet is dance. I have always been an artist, and with over 250 weddings under my photography belt, I am super excited to bring my experiences and absolute love for beautiful imagery to serving brides on the Outer Banks.
