On a perfect evening a couple weeks ago, I arrived at Jekyll Island’s Driftwood beach with my wife Amanda and my son Caedmon for an undercover photo session. Cole contacted me to photograph him proposing to his girlfriend Kelsey amongst the driftwood.
A guy standing there alone with two cameras and a bag of gear on the beach looks a tad out of place. So to keep suspicions low, I brought Amanda and Caedmon along to sit on a towel with me as I waited for them to arrive. Once they did I got a small glance but nothing more before Cole dropped to one knee and proposed. It was beautiful to watch! She said Yes!
Afterward, he pointed us out and we walked over to meet them. She told us she wondered why we were taking pictures of them but it never crossed her mind that we were there for them! I guess my family worked as great camouflage. :)
Then we had a quick portrait session after the driftwood beach proposal to celebrate the day!
