From Keri-Anne: I had the most amazing honor of capturing this wee gem, I knew from the moment Josh emailed me about it that it was going to be amazing! Josh spent hours and hours hand making everything from all of the signs that he lined along the beach with poignant dates and memories of their relationship to the posts, glass jar tea light holders and the picnic table comprised of a wooden top and brick legs topped with Candice's favorite food.
I LOVE a good proposal and a good proposal is one where the bride is totally unaware that it's coming. Josh pulled it off by getting his sister Laura to drive her to the beach under the pretense of a quick walk on the beach before dinner together (something they did regularly). While we were waiting (and Josh rather nervously as Candice was running a little bit late!) it turned into a bit of a stealth mission, we had Josh and Candice's siblings on top of the dune with binoculars ready to indicate her arrival while I cowered in the dunes making sure I was out of sight.
Once they had arrived at the beach (much to Josh's relief) Laura handed Candice a letter from him and gave her headphones to put on which had hers and Josh's 'song' playing. As she walked she read and followed the signs up to Josh who was standing at the top of the dune with a single rose and the rest as they say is history.
This proposal was drop dead gorgeous and the thought behind it was so impressive and sweet it was a lot of fun and I hope they will treasure these photos forever!
