Engagement Photos

Surprise Engagement

Andrew & Kate flew over from the States for their romantic holiday together in the Algarve. Little did Kate know, it would be a holiday she would remember forever!

Andrew contacted me, telling me how he wants to propose to his girlfriend whilst on “vacation” in the Algarve – could I capture this beautiful moment and did I know of a picturesque beach for the occasion? YES & YES. After sending him a few different locations, he decided on using Praia da Marinha as his special beach for the evening.

On the day, we exchanged a few texts ie. what he would be wearing so I could recognise him and he also sent me a couple of photos of his soon to be fiancé just so I didn’t miss them!

Well..here they are, wandering onto the beach…

Kate is completely oblivious to the fact that I am watching/photographing them. It was great, she was so concentrated on the beauty of the beach and getting her own pictures of the scenery on her I-phone. I could see how Andrew was nervous and she had NO IDEA!

I wasn’t too sure when Andrew was going to get down on one knee and pop the question…so I patiently waited, slightly on edge as to not to miss the moment!

And waited…

And then FINALLY…Bam!! Kate had her back turned and Andrew got down on the sand, ready to propose.

After what seemed like forever, she turned around and realised what was happening.

Andrew popped the question, and she said YES!

I gave them some time to enjoy the moment together and let the news sink in…
