One of the more interesting things that we get asked to do here at Clearwater Beach Portraits is to photograph an actual marriage proposal. The groom will call and tell us where he plans to propose and we go out and photograph it, while pretending that we are not photographing it.
Last week we were waiting on the beach for the couple to arrive when it started to rain. Not a big rain, light at first. We stuck it out and shortly the couple arrived for their stroll on the beach before dinner at the Sand Pearl Resort. She must have been wondering why he insisted they go for a walk in the rain!
We shot so many images, despite the rain! Here are just a few of our favorites!
All the couples friends were hiding out at the beach bar behind the resort and came running out to congratulate..
At this point, the rain was really starting to come down so we headed for cover and had a few drinks while we waited for the squall to pass…
The great thing about summer storms in Florida is that they don’t last for long! A short while later we were back on the beach for group shots..
… and then some time alone with the couple!
