Surprise sunset proposal Photography at Pass-a-Grille beach

It was a fun evening with Alex & Grace on Pass-a-Grille Beach!

Alex & Grace took a sunset walk on St. Pete Beach when they came upon a picnic arranged by St. Pete Picnic Co. This wasn’t just an ordinary walk on the beach, but rather the place for Alex to propose to Grace. Alex had carefully laid out plans for that evening in addition to watching the sun go down – he had an engagement ring in his pocket. For his special moment, Alex arranged to have a romantic picnic setup for the couple to spend the evening watching the sun go down. He also hired a professional photographer to capture the moment.

As an experienced proposal photographer, I know what it takes for this assignment. It takes planning and some waiting. It also takes some hiding of myself and my gear – beach bags and coolers come handy and so does beach chair bags to hold the light stand.

As I like to get to know my couples when planning proposal photography, I learned that Alex and Grace are in the United States Air Force. Grace, is a recent graduate of the United Air Force Academy in Colorado and a current Officer in the United States Air Force, and Alex is a current student in the United Air Force Academy. We are proud to support our troops!

Alex & Grace were great to work with this couple and Rachel from St. Pete Picnic Co and in case you are wondering Grace said Yes!
