Matt was hesitant about whether he should propose in his home state of Kentucky, or instead, “pop the question” somewhere in the Caribbean. Well, after an exhaustive search for the right place, Matt decided to make his proposal in the Turks and Caicos in Grace Bay. This was an easy decision because he and his girlfriend Morgan were due for a vacation together. Matt decided to ask her the fateful question during their trip to the Turks and Caicos. And that is when he contacted Paradise Photography for photography services and for general advice on how to document the moment without tipping Morgan off to his secret.
The Truth Shall Set You Free
Most men that are in Matt’s position are often unsure about how to involve a professional photographer and whether this image maker should be hidden or be seen at the time of the proposal. In Matt’s case we decided to advise him to have us present at the time of his proposal. Therefore, we suggested that he tell Morgan the truth that they were to have a photo session. And that is exactly what happened. What she didn’t realize was that Matt was going to ask her to marry him when they got to the beach.
From the Garden to the Beach
All of us met in the lobby of their resort. And from there we photographed Matt and Morgan throughout the garden before heading to a secluded beach. I specifically instructed Matt to make the proposal at the waters edge. But more importantly to position himself that would allow me to capture both of their faces and their expressions. Of course, Morgan said “yes”. And both of them were delighted to have hired the best wedding and proposal photographer in the Turks and Caicos.
