Tyler + Larissa


Proposals are slowly becoming one of my favorite things to photograph and looking at these two it's super easy to see why. I mean, come on!

Downtown Savannah Georgia Proposal

Tyler reached out to me about shooting the big surprise while he and his then girlfriend Larissa were visiting Savannah. According to Tyler, they talked about engagement down the road but he wanted this to happen when they were passing through Savannah, one of Larissa's favorite cities. We spent the afternoon coordinating the perfect spot in Lafayette Square - right by The Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist. To say the location was amazing would be an understatement!


Trying to play coy, I was walking around the square looking like a straight tourist - taking photos of the live oak trees and the cathedral. When they approached "the spot" and Tyler got down on one knee, it took everything in me not to drop my camera because I was THAT excited for them. Larissa was absolutely in shock and she was glowing from sheer happiness. Best part? Tyler even coordinated for their families to be there when it happened! We popped some bubbly and took some beautiful photos to celebrate. I am so happy that I was able to play even the smallest part in capturing what's just the start of their love story.
