Surprise Coligny Beach Proposal

Surprise proposals are so much fun! I really love when my wife, Rebecca, is able to join me when I photograph one. Each time I think back on my own proposal and how nervous I was.

Greg and I spoke earlier in the week to make a plan of how he would propose to Brittany on Hilton Head’s Coligny Beach. Brittany grew up visiting Hilton Head Island with her family, so it has a special meaning for both her and Greg. The plan was to visit the Tiki Hut, which is one of their favorite Island spots, before taking a walk on the beach. Unfortunately it was closed on Saturday, so Greg improvised. After a round of mini golf and a wine tasting it was time for the big moment.

Even though the temperature was in the 50’s and there was a pretty strong breeze sweeping across Coligny beach, they strolled out to the ocean. Greg, ever the gentleman, hoisted Brittany on his back to walk through a tidal cut so her feet wouldn’t get cold in the water. As they strolled by the ocean Greg picked his moment took his love by the hand and proposed. Brittany, of course Said Yes!

Congratulations to Brittany and Greg! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of such a special moment!

Hilton Head Coligny Beach Engagement Session


How do you follow up a romantic proposal during an Oregon hike? With a beach engagement session of course! Jeremy proposed to Emily just a few months ago while hiking with family near their home in Portland. With an annual family vacation planned for Hilton Head Island, the beach was the perfect destination for their engagement session. I met them at Coligny Beach Park and connected with them immediately. I had such a great time with them during their photo session, and I’m so glad I could be a part of this special season in their life.

Congratulations Emily and Jeremy!
