Shawn and Meghan's Beach Photo Shoot Proposal

Beach Photo Shoot Proposal (5)

How we met: We met through mutual friends in 2011. Never did I think back then that we would be where we are now.

How he asked: We go to Nags Head, NC for our vacation every year, and I heard this awesome photographer (Tiffany Lee Photography) was going to be there that same week of our vacation, so I set up an appointment with her for a photo shoot on the beach since the beach is my favorite place to be!! Nothing seemed unusual on the way to the photo shoot. We got there and the photographer started snapping pictures and we were having a great time.

I was posing for another picture and I was facing the photographer and he was standing behind me (or so I thought!). My now fiancé Shawn says, “Babe!” And I could tell by the tone of his voice that something was up. I instantly turned around and he was down on one knee.

My eyes filled with tears and a million emotions were running through me. All I thought was: Me? This is happening to me? This is happening now? How did I get so lucky? It all seemed like a fairy tale I never thought would happen. But at that very moment, all I could do was cry and think how thankful I am for the man down on one knee in front me. He asked, “You know I love you right?” I nodded. Then he said “I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?” I instantly said yes and continued to cry and hugged the love of my life. I’ll remember that moment until the day I die.

The photographer, who had no idea he was going to propose either, kept taking photos so we now have this moment of when we got engaged captured forever! I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life and become Mrs. Kepler. It couldn’t have been any better and I’m so lucky to be spending my life with this man.
