When we first started to plan, Brian explained to me that Liz was the kind of girl who went looking for (and would find) her Christmas presents… so I knew we had to act carefully. Brian had the plan in the works for months ahead of time though when he told Liz his mom wanted to do a family photo session. Little did she know it was all a ploy for his proposal :). We met at the entrance to the Ocean City State Park and Brian’s family was “running late” for the shoot, so we went to check my light while we “waited for them to arrive”. It was the perfect set up. As I photographed them walking down the beach, Brian got down on one knee, and the rest you can experience through their glowing faces in the following images. Needless to say, the girl who always finds her Christmas presents was thoroughly surprised this time!! Congratulations Liz & Brian! You had the perfect night for this and I’m so happy I was able to capture this moment for you! And Brian, you did such a great job with all the planning!!
