Don CeSar surprise proposal! | Christine says Yes!

Capturing surprise proposals is one of my favorite things to do. Just something about the romance and love, the nervous "groom-to-be, the tears of joy, the giggles and squeals, and most importantly of course, the DIAMONDS!

So when Danny texted me out of the blue this week from their home state of Rhode Island because he had seen Adriano and Julianne's lovey dovey proposal that was published on "How He Asked," I was super exited to help him plan Christine's secret beach proposal!

Not only did Danny do an awesome job of hiring me to make sure they had the moment captured for years to come, but he picked a gorgeous location, the Don CeSar hotel (in St. Petersburg,) and he set it up perfectly so she looked amazing!!

These photos are completely un-staged, they are really this in love.. Christine has NO idea I'm photographing them!

After Danny popped the question and Christine said "YES!!!" they headed off to celebrate with family just as the storm began and this gorgeous rainbow broke through the clouds. I'm calling that a sign of well done Danny!
