This surprise dunes engagement was definitely one for the books. Let me explain how this whole thing went down. I grew up and went to school in Valparaiso, Indiana. Our neighboring/rivalry school was Chesterton. Growing up, I had a lot of friends who went to Chesterton, and that’s how I knew of Brianna and Trent. I’ve known of them for probably 7 or 8 years to be honest, it’s been quite awhile, but we were never really “friends.” Well, we are now! Anyway, On thanksgiving, I received an inquiry from Trent, not Brianna, Trent. He hadn’t mentioned the proposal idea until we started texting! I was so down. He had this planned to a t, I just had to be there to capture it all. He pulled off the best surprise dunes engagement and her reaction was PRICELESS.
Now, I have to tell you how I got this first picture, because ever since posting it on Instagram, I’ve been getting SO many questions about it! So Trent had found this photo and sent it to me. It was something he wanted to get before he actually got down on one knee. Let me tell you, this was probably the hardest part! So once we got to the beach, Brianna was changing in the car and Trent had to “pay me the remaining balance.” He gave me the ring to keep in my pocket until we were situated at the top of the stairs. I told Brianna to stay completely still because it was super windy out and I had just fixed her hair. I grabbed the box out of my pocket, handed it to him and BAM there it was.
Still so excited for them and cannot wait to watch their relationship grow even more! To see another beach engagement session I did, click here!
