1when I get an inquiry about an upcoming proposal, I immediately get excited. so much planning goes into it.. the location, the time of day, the story to keep the surprise alive. and when luke contacted me, we only had a week! he and his (then)girlfriend, paige, were taking a road trip and were making a stop at chincoteague. because they had never visited before, figuring out exactly where to go was an interesting exchange of emails :) we decided on the lighthouse as one, it’s gorgeous – and two, it’s pretty tucked back there and it would be easy to find each other. as the morning arrived, I drove down to chincoteague and started texting luke… maybe pop the question at the top of the lighthouse? well, there was a really long line. could they bring their bikes up there? probably not. meanwhile, paige was enjoying the scenery and stopping here and there to take photos as they biked the nature trail while all luke could think about was getting her to the lighthouse so that he could ask her to be with him.. forever. I knew it was them as soon as they rounded the corner leading up to the lighthouse and after luke and I made some brief eye contact, he turned and got down on one knee. happy tears and laughter followed as paige said yes and luke got up to hug his new¬†fianc√©. I couldn’t be happier for you both and was very honored to capture such an important moment. cheers!
