Sunset Proposal on the Eastern Shore

She was in Maryland for a vacation with her family.  They had rented a house on the Eastern Shore so Erica called and inquired about a photo shoot.  A day later, I got a call from Andy letting me in on a secret.  The kind of secret we girls gush over.  He was going to propose!  I.WAS.ECSTATIC!  I’d never met these lovely people but I couldn’t help myself.  In keeping up the guise, Erica’s sisters and I headed to the front of the house to get some pictures of the three of them after the other family shots were wrapped.  She had no clue that Andy and the rest of her family were in the back setting up a romantic scene for the big moment. surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0090As she came through the door… We held our breath. She paused. Recognition dawned. Her eyes wide. A gasp. A smile. Lumps in our throats as we captured this unforgettable moment. surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0065 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0066 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0091 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0067 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0068 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0069 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0070 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0071 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0072 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0073 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0074 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0075 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0076 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0077 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0078 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0079 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0080 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0081 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0083 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0084A gift for King Louie. surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0086 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0087 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0088Congratulations Erica & Andy!  Thank you for allowing us to witness and freeze this moment in time.  We are so happy for you!  Cheers to your extraordinary future together! surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0089
